Yummy Omlettes!

We wanted a brunch type meal after church. This place totally filled the bill! The omlettes were fluffy and delicious! They had a variety of choices for fillings.

So glad that Buena Vista has this restaurant. The food is always good, the wait staff is always pleasant and happy. I love consistency!! I also love that they serve breakfast all day long, but this time I had a Bistro burger and it was fabulous! I'm never disappointed at Jan's!

Without a doubt the worst lunch we have ever had. When we were handed sticky menus it should have been a clue. Hamburgers were so tough we had to cut them with a knife, obviously a long frozen patty, nothing fresh about it except the onion and lettuce. My husband had the privilege of having a salad right out of... More

Was wondering around this part of Colorado without planned destination. Stopped in Chamber of Commerce (or tourist info office, can't remember) and asked about a good eatery. Was directed to Jan's. Food was good, not spectacular but good and worth the price. Small restaurant has about 30 tables. Wasn't crowded on weekday at 2 pm. Served quickly. Had a wonderful... More

We had a late breakfast here. The food was very good. They actually know how to do crispy bacon! The owner stopped by our table and introduced herself. The coffee was great. OK, I know this is a bit picky, but I really dislike the little cups of half & Half that many restaurants put on the table (I mean,... More

We live in Buena Vista and because we are not recognized as locals we don't get great service. We notice that the "locals" get friendly service. Breakfast is pretty good but dinner is not worth the stop. They also close earlier in the evening than their sign says if they don't feel like they are busy enough so call ahead.

We stopped in for breakfast on our way out of town. Looked like a local hangout for breakfast and from what I gathered it is run by Jan and her daughters. We had a bacon, avocado, and cheese omelet and corned beef hash with eggs, hashbrowns, and smothered in green chili. Both dishes were plentiful and delicious but nothing spectacular.... More

This is a great, locally owned restaurant with great food (especially the freshly flown in fish from Alaska for Friday's fish fry) with great home made and exotic pies. Great staff. Friendly, helpful and quick to serve.

a local stated "if you leave here hungry it's your own fault!" Well when two teenagers can't finish their plates, this is correct. Great food, good service in a relaxed atmosphere. Can't wait to go back in the future.
