Lick Your Plate Good

Omelets, burrito whatever you get you'll want to go back for more!! Comfortable spot and really good coffee. Give it a try and you'll be going as often as you can.

I like that this has a hip, diner feel. You will find many different types of people dining. The green chili smothered burger or burrito is a must have! Eat at the diner. Enjoy the experience!

Why doesn't this place have 5 solid stars?! The breakfast was yummy- made to order and HUGE! We've never not been able to finish our food but holy cannoli, were the portions here big! They were accommodating to our little one (14 months) and pleasant. The owner we presume (man behind counter) was super sweet-- recommended some activities in the... More

This is the place to go for breakfast. I especially love the breakfast burrito. I have mine covered half in half with country gravy and their spicy green chili. This is one of the best in the country. They have many other good options too. Many have strange names like the grump or the thing. What they have in common... More

I don't consider any part of the name of this place to be truthful other than "diner". Outdated and underwhelming atmosphere and CASH ONLY in 2015...but with their own ATM so they can make money on fees. What a deal. My younger brother suggested it as I'm new to the area and he sometimes goes there with his other military... More

Green chile is okay, not the best I've ever had. Restaurant takes cash only and customers must take money out of their account with a cash machine to pay the bill, they refuse to accept debit or CC card because they claim their margins are slim, I don't buy that because they are one of the higher cost breakfast joints...

We decided to follow the buzz about this apparently popular spot in downtown Colorado Springs. We arrived late morning on a weekend, gave our name to the hostess, and waited with at least 20 other patrons that lined the front windows inside and the sidewalk outside. The weather wasn't great, but wasn't freezing, so we didn't mind spilling out but... More

I have had breakfast here a few times and today was awful. I ordered steak and eggs and the sirloin tasted rotten (and I have ordered it before and it was actually really good) Not one time did any of the many girls working there ask how our meal was and when my wife mentioned to the manager that the...

The best hash browns. The large eggs come from a Colorado farm. Fun staff to visit with as well as with the other diners.
