A nice shelter away from the rain. Hid here, had got chocolate and fish pie while waiting for the rain to subside. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere warm and cosy. Did not mind the rain at all when I’m inside.

I am not sure if I saw any Vegas options on the menu. The Co-Op might have a few options for your dietary preference.
