The cafeteria has of course a fast food restaurant style to it, but with fancier food than most cafeterias. Uluwehi is a quality cafeteria based on their location, atmosphere, food quality, cleanliness, and their service. When I am deciding whether a cafe is good or not I look if it has a good location, good atmosphere, food quality, cleanliness, and outstanding service. The location of the cafe needs to be convenient, low traffic, and enough sufficient room to sit and enjoy your meal. Also, the atmosphere needs to be welcoming and calm.
The small size of the restaurant is raved as a turn off to the reviewer and she states that it would be best to order take out if anything, seeing as the restaurant only holds about 18 people. The reviewer is kind enough to describe many options from the menu that range from heart to healthy while staying in a good price budget. The price is very effective seeing as the restaurant popped up amidst of many upscale restaurants. The reviewer also mentions the atmosphere of the restaurant seems “clubby” with decorated fans, neon lights, pumped up pop music, and the sizzling you could hear in the kitchen. If I was reading this article, I would not consider this resturant for a family type.
These burgers are a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Each description of the burger let you know what is on it and how it is made. The Hard Rock Cafe isn't just for those who are the hard rocking type, per say. It is a family based restaurant and everyone is allowed to attend. They do offer a full bar, but that is just for the grown ups.
Being able to watch and meet people of all types and varieties around this busy neighborhood is entertaining, especially with Mazzas’ nice large windows, with the lovely option for eating outside. The outside patio and the inside middle eastern décor really stood out which instantly intrigued me. I noted that it would be a great place for an intimate setting for conversation and eating. It was definitely romantic with the dim lighting and quiet relaxed atmosphere. It was noveau, without trying too hard to replicate some kind of Americanized “Arabic ambience”.
That’s right, white walls, white floor tiles, white inner pillars, and even the exterior is of white. The furniture and other aspects of the restaurant are of a neat, but vague antique. It’s especially innovative when the whole kitchen is visible for the customers and guests to see. The chefs and employees also wear white, but with the simple black contrast to easily spot them. The vibe that this aspect brings out is of an atmosphere that belongs in no era: It is not trying to mimic, recreate, nor have a particular design made, except for the heavenly atmosphere for their heavenly food; almost as if you stepped through the gates of heaven and stepped into a white paradise.

The menu also provides healthy options like salads, grilled chicken substitutes, humus plates and carrot plates.
For the students and faculty at Southern Connecticut State University, Connecticut Hall seems to be fairly inexpensive because their meal plan provides them with unlimited visits to eat as much food as they please. Conn is most definitely an informal dining facility, considering its customers are all college students going there two to three times a day. The building is actually quite large for a college cafeteria, at least I think so. The dining area is shaped like a big U. After walking through the entrance you immediately smell all of the different food being prepared.
The Water tower offers seating for 100 people indoors and 40 people outdoors in their covered patio. It also offers full service dine in and carryout for their products. Another strength would be that they offer a full menu that is moderately priced. The café offers a small stage for live entertainment as well as the selling of newspapers and magazines. This allows the customer to feel as though they can keep up with the local news, entertainment, and history.
