This restaurant is close to work and has the reputation for great sweet rolls. I had the Fajita and I was pleasantly surprised. It was flavorful and fresh. I took my grand daughter, who is a picky eater, but she finished her food.

Depends whether you want bar scene (sustained) or food scene (early ). Also depends on your appetite not for food but for noise.
