"It's loud," joked a laughing Lydia. "No, everyone seems friendly, it's very talkative. We have lots of families, lots of older people — they're regulars. We have a lot of regulars."
Some are even quite dedicated.
"We have a little old man named Jack who comes every day," Lydia said. "He's our favorite."
The staff is young, helpful and energetic. They're quick to greet customers with a smile and appear genuinely friendly, adding an infusion of youth to the nostalgic venue.
