Once we figured out how and where to order lunch all went well. Efficient fresh quick lunch although you do have to wait in line. One toilet working properly in women's washroom which is a few flights of stairs away!

It is not a breakfast place ... but you can order croissant or egg sandwiches. It depends on the daily menu.
