the restaurant has not been refurbished in years. Every chair cushion was torn. They only accepted cash.

Stopped by the Olympic Flame Café for breakfast since it was near our hotel. It was a busy place and seemed like a "whole in the wall" kind of place where you can grab some good food. We were right, the eggs and salmon were...More
