Café Su serves traditional Chinese cuisine with a bit of a twist. For instance, instead of the traditional fortune cookies, Café Su's cookies come dipped in chocolate. The kitchen staff can accommodate special arrangements for food preparations at Café Su, which offers a hip and fun-loving atmosphere that complements the rather innovative Chinese menu it offers. The restaurant also offers a wide array of beers---some seen only in other countries, while others are one-of-a-kind beers. It sits near Holiday Park and is one of many restaurants that line Fifth Street. Valley Junction is also nearby, a venue where you can go shopping, learn a bit of history and soak up some of the local arts. Café Su offers dine-in as well as take-out options.
