Another elaborate paneled piece inside. This was after this family of three came clunking into the peaceful little chapel asking me (at the kneeler), "Is this where Pete's Coffee is?" No joke. They were loud and beyond without a clue or consideration for others. I had to laugh and responded, "Do I look like a barrista?" They argued and said some Asian woman outside (most likely quietly meditating in the gardens) told her it was inside Grace Cathedral. I suggested they walk around the outside perimeter.
