It was crazy busy today the first day. Some lady & her 2 kids were the first ones at 5:30AM! Crazy nuts. Even at 8am the lines were around the corner & down the streets. They didn't open the doors until 9:30am.

We had a simple lunch in the open space right near the entrance - The Piazza. They have 2 small areas that serve food: ready made salads/sandwiches/snacks/drinks on the Left; on the Right side: ready made sandwiches/ soup: chowder or minestone/ salad. I got the half soup & salad deal at $9. The guy doesn't fill the small cup up & the Caesar salad is just average. Comes with a roll. You can get the salad with or without cheese. CASH ONLY.

Cafe:

They have different stations to pick from. Soup (I didn't see it), sandwich, slow cooked, noodles, sizzle, taco man, bar, bakery, steamed, rolls, salad.
