Though a bit on the pricy side, this is a very nice spot for coffee, tea, salads and treats. It is also a nice place to watch the game or sit by the fire.

Good food and much better prices than the other restaurants at the hotel. I suggest you get food and drinks from here and then go outside and sit by the grass and eat your food and enjoy the view.
