The parking lot is a little lower than the main road (Federal Rd/Rte 7) which travels north & south. Customers walk in the front door to the seating area, coffee bar, and order counter. There are 3 open doors to the cooking area, kitchen prep area, and the 6 door reach-in soda cooler. Next to the order counter is a Deli case.
