The atmosphere is warm and the waitress that was looking after me was alright. Nothing really struck out at me about this establishment. Really, it's ok but there are a number of other places I'd consider first. The food was average and luke warm.

Finished up a tough week at work just prior to leaving on vacation. Feeling the effects of cold/flu season so stopped @ Dick’s for a serving of Szechwan (aka hot and sour soup). Cured!

First time going to Dicks cafe. Had fantastic service, and food was served very quickly. Food was good and reasonably priced. The only thing that wasn't so good was the water, and coffee.
