You have to try the Cinnamon Rolls with nuts! If you love "The Place" in Flagstaff you will love this place. The cinnamon roll was as big as a kids face! Warning you may want to split a breakfast if you order the cinnamon roll first. From what we could eat the breakfast was awesome as well. We didn't eat... More

Had breakfast on Sunday. We had to wait about 10 minutes but worth the wait. Ordered strawberries and banana parfait with granola it was enormous and fresh. My husband ordered a meat omelet which was as large as the plate and strong coffee with vanilla creamer. Second time at this restaurant every single plate coming out kitchen was plate sized....

My family and I visited Darbi's during the holiday on Saturday and Sunday which are their busiest times and it was wonderful both days. After the first day we realized that you could call in and have you name on a list which speeds things up a lot! The staff was on it! Great service with a smile. They will... More

Loved the rooster pictures all over the place (could be French in influence and that's a good thing), very clever and well done decor. You can tell the owners are paying to attention to detail. The food (important part) was very good. Very relaxed atmosphere. Only issue is the parking lot is a little cramped but worth the effort.

Thanks so much for the positive feedback. We are always happy to hear that people enjoy their entire experience. As for the parking, I couldn't agree with you more! Believe it or not we have almost doubled the parking lot when the patio was built, but it just can't be expanded anymore. The staff does not park there in an... More

We visited the area from Phoenix for my husband's birthday. I looked for a good breakfast restaurant and read several reviews. I'm not sure how this place could get a bad review, we thought it was great. We were seated just after walking in the door. It was snowing outside and we were seated near the fireplace, which was perfect!... More

My wife and I visit Darbi's for breakfast every time we're in Pinetop and it is always amazing! We've never found an item on the menu we didn't like, although some of our favorites are the S.O.B (biscuits and gravy), giant waffles & the egg, bacon and pancakes breakfast! We're never disappointed and the family owned service is always great!!... More

Often when recommended by resort staff..my first thought is " danger Will Robinson". But after driving by Darbi's several times and always seeing the lot packed we decided to try it for Sunday breakfast. Expecting tourist area high prices I was astounded to see most menu items in the $5 to $9 dollar range. Even Eggs Benedict were less than... More

Homey, bustling, friendly. Great place for a huge homestyle breakfast delivered by attentive staff. Not fancy, but cozy. We went at a super busy time, and yet were seated and had our food in a reasonable time.
