The staff were extremely organized and managed to serve a big lunch crowd fast and with a smile. The variety of offerings was good for the area.

this was advertised as being open in june 2015 while making reservations. But after arrival it was not expected to open until july-aug 2015. Based on appearance, sept would be my guess.

We had breakfast and an meal in the evening at this cafeteria. The food was not from a five star restaurant. Nevertheless, it was good and would return if in the area.
