... it had a Subway serving breakfast flatbreads which suited us just fine. We asked for the medium coffee and ended up with a huge cup - and there was even one bigger! The coffee was dispensed out of a machine and only options were flavoured and sickly sweet. We continued on and arrived at Amarillo, Texas.
