Small place, but good food, nice vibes and music. Seems like a food place to take a date. They have booths, low tables, high tables and a bar. They so also have a dress code, mostly for guys.

I have been to Vivid Cafe on a few occasions for Happy Hour. The drinks are good. The staff is friendly and the $5 deals are great. There was little to no wait time.
