This is one of the best places for your Starbucks like coffee. I always drink the Caramel Mountain Freeze. Delicious! Another favorite it the Chicken Caesar Wrap with Chicken Corn Soup.

Good drink choices but everything is expensive. Not many food for lunch or breakfast no eggs or pancakes or bacon or sausage. Drinks are the only thing I get. A drink will cost you $5 though one drink.
