Inside of the modern/vintage style restaurant, there is an old style Coca-Cola machine in the corner, in front of a whole wall covered with a comic. The walls are           painted a dark gray with hints of red all around the room. The small restaurant has a long counter where there are drinks as well as donuts on display. In front of the windows there is a counter with red stools for people to sit  and enjoy their food.
