    They had a kitchen fire and were "reopening soon". They'll be missed, especially for the early morning convenience (at least Pre-COVID).
    Also for their seating without the whole ch watching you eat.
    Any places like that left?

    • Location: As always, silence is NOT an admission of agreement on DDF. It just means that people lack the stamina to keep on arguing with made up "facts", illogical arguments, deceiving statements, nasty and degrading comments, and fuzzy math. - @yelped
