A view of the mall's Teflon tent-roofed Cafe Food Court. It can now be seen as an historic 1980s structure. It is one of the nation's only Teflon tent mall facilities still in use. Other tent-roofed malls, such as Houston, Texas' TOWN & COUNTRY, San Mateo, California's FASHION ISLAND and Little Rock, Arkansas' UNIVERSITY MALL, have long since been reduced to rubble.
