Located in the lower level of the Capitol it is a great bargain for a hearty cafeteria style lunch, fresh prepackaed chef or caesar salads or in the morning breakfast sandwiches or continental choices. It closes at 2PM.

Much of the Capitol building was under renovation when we visited, but what we could see was interesting. The kids and I particularly enjoyed the governor's room, and the world war exhibits. We spent some time in the Senate gallery imagining what a session was...More
