Great place for a casual yet amazing meal - all foodies should check it out. Best dinner you will ever have overlooking a Shell Station (not your typical gas station) - very personable staff-

They have delicious croissants and coffee, but the prices are quite steep. $8.00 for a baked good is a little pricey, so we went with the lesser prices croissant and it was great. The views of the velvet-draped mountains in the background were breathtaking.
