Additional Comments - This will make you stand out in the competition! Unique aspects? Student discounts? Parking tips?: 

This store the second of my mission across America and is in a city street location, so whilst there is limited on street parking you can't guarantee getting a parking space nearby. The store is a double front affair with the internal separating wall knocked out along with the 1st floor floor giving an enormous space which must be well lit by the upper level windows which remain. It facilitates a lot of height to be filled with art in particular the wall next to the door which has a large array of small tester paintings. The only draw back to the architecture is a slight fear with so many internals removed the store could come tumbling down around me.

A mixed array of diffrent wooden chairs and tables fill the inner area of the store whilst I requested a seat on the padded form benching that lines the side wall and made for comfortable respite after walking around all day.

The staff were friendly enough in their service and remembered to do the checks and also offer dessert at end. The chicken would have been ok apart from the fact it was served up quite cool and not the piping hot you would expect at Nandos. The chips were also not as hot as could be but were tasty being the skin on variety. The coleslaw came in a good portion size and was very tasty.

The store had one of the computerised beverage machines which gave a massive range of about 50 flavours from orange coke through to still pink lemonade (contains 0% fruit). One draw back again being hit with the tax at the end as opposed to the menu telling you the genuine price.

The free in store wifi is also a nice touch.

I would return to this store but would hope the food would be warmer next time.
