The temple and grounds are very interesting. On Sundays there is an amazing brunch buffet of Thai food. Seating is casual and may include other parties. Children can run on the large lawn.

Wonderful Thai food, especially the pork soup! Picnic tables by the water. Great people watching. Go early, (9:30-10) for best selections.
