Restaurant
“'Chic' but still cozy! This space is a renovated fire department. The walls are huge windows, the floors are leveled concrete, the visitors are local families and students from across the globe! Menu is $$, but don't let that deter you from experiencing part of the local life! This spot also holds a lot of community events, such as vintage markets, ping pong nights, movie nights, guest lectures, and the odd festival event!”
