  • Be nice to the employees. They deserve respect.
  • TDR. Where forks are an endangered species.
  • It all sucks.
  • They need to have that superb chocolate pie everyday.
  • Advisory: You should probably avoid 99% of all meat served here, seeing as we just got served COMPLETELY RAW chicken. And this isn't the first time...
  • The omelettes are wonderful in the morning. Get here early for the shortest line!
  • Always say thank you to the employees- it equally brighten their day
  • The food here is made with anger, baked right in. Chances are you'll get yelled at by the employees at least once.
  • Try the coffee it's so good! It will be the best decision you make all day.
  • When in doubt, get some pizza.
  • Eat the bananas with hot fudge
  • The schedule on the weekends is abominable.
  • Keep an eye out for Firewok's baked potato bars and/or Curry nights... Delicious!
  • They never refill the chocolate milk, don't expect it for dinner, but maybe an early lunch
  • Not only am I a boss, but now I am the mayor, too.
  • Get here before 8:00am to avoid the crowds
  • Blueberry bagels = happnin' snappnin' ... But be careful, they stain your hands blue. ^_^
  • Farm to fork bread is always to die for
