Locals eat here for a great breakfast

We've eaten at the Waffle House for many years. It's like an "old time" cafe It's small, there's usually a line, but it usually doesn't take more that 10 minutes to get a booth, table or opening at the counter. Again, nothing fancy, but great food & fair prices. The omelets are huge! Again... read more

Popular spot for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Eggs, bacon, hash browns, coffee. A little disappointed in the hash browns. If you read my reviews, hash browns are the key to my ratings for breakfast places. These were browned only on one side and were quite greasy. meh.... That said they were turning tables as fast as they could and... More

Great diner. They need to build on to make space for all their customers! We had to wait but I'm glad we stayed. Our waitress, Loretta was really nice and super efficient. Our food was really good; my husband had the breakfast burrito, while my kids and I have the pancakes. The portions were very generous and the prices were... More

Every time we visit family in Alamogordo we eat here. Our last visit was two days ago and once again, the food was terrific! My husband ordered the chicken fried steak and it was delish! Every dish we order is tasty, cooked perfectly, and just enough. Our service is always attentive and pleasant. We will always eat here when we... More

This place is busy and sometimes we have to wait. But it is so worth it. I order the the same thing every time. Chicken fried fiesta! I could eat this every day! It is so good. If you haven't tried it yet, what are you waiting for!?

My family and I have been to this restaurant before, while visiting family stationed in Alamogordo. As a childlesscouple, our experience was average...the food was greasy and a little cold. After children, it was horrible. Restaurant is an old Waffle House and the restroom was disgusting (I did not go in the first time, but when I did...I would never... More

This is one of my all-time favorite places to eat, especially for breakfast. The food is always good and the service always excellent. My family and I are always happy, with full tummies when we leave :-)

The W & P Shoppe was simply an awesome breakfast experience. My buddy and I were looking for a solid breakfast before hiking the White Sands, and that's what we found. They offered a delicious, affordable meal while being some of the friendliest people I've ever met. Make sure you go if you're in Alamogordo.

This is an old school joint - open kitchen, lots of counter seating, friendly, efficient staff, hands on owner and great breakfasts. The food is all freshly prepared and portions are good size. A great way to start your day - highly recommended!
