Breakfast and dinner were both yummy!

We stopped here first for breakfast and since it was so good we decided to try it out for dinner. Breakfast choices are great, they have something for everyone. Dinner time they have Japanese food and live piano playing. Now this sounds odd at first but it was so charming to have the live music... read more

My wife and I decided to take a long ride and we ended up here for breakfast. She had the ABC omelette and I had the Eggs Benedict. We shared dishes and they were both delicious. Staff here are very friendly and the service was excellent.

I haven’t had a breakfast this good in a long time. The menu has a thorough selection of classic omelets and egg dishes. My wife had the ABC omelet, avocado, bacon, and cheese, no, not cheddar, but rather cream cheese. She loved it. I had the Eggs Benedict and it was utter perfection, three perfectly poached eggs sitting atop hefty... More

We stopped for lunch at the Mile High without reading any reviews, so were pleasantly surprised to find Korean dishes among the lunch choices. We had Bibimap, Yaki Udon, and a terriyaki turkey sandwich. The first two were excellent (so much food in the bibimap that I had a full meal in the to go box). The spice level was... More
