I just love this place. Service is great and friendly staff. I went there many times. They have the best hot chocolate drink I must say.

The staff is usually friendly, so apologies to you guys, but come one: over priced bland food in a sterile mall environment: it's everything that's wrong with globalization. And then there is the juices: you know what an orange juice is going to cost you...More
