Guest dine within the restaurant’s vibrant dining room, which is decked out in neon pink and bright yellow walls speckled with local artwork. Natural light floods the interior, breathing life into overhanging palm trees, which are rumored to steal succulent cinnamon rolls while diners aren't looking.
