We asked our shuttle driver where to get a quick lunch and she pointed us to Blue Ginger Cafe. Quick was actually rather leisurely, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. They have fresh baked goodies right there on the counter where you place your order. I...More

Inexpensive diner with down home appeal. We ate there on a Sunday before heading to the airport. In reality it was our only option unless we went back out to the Four Seasons. Three of us ate there for about $40 which included bakery goods....More
