Great place for Breakfast

We went here for breakfast. I thought the biscuits and gravy were great and my wife loved the french toast. But when we tried each others we both thought it was just ok. lol

One of my favorite eateries in Crested Butte. I have only been for breakfast but I do go everyday for breakfast! Everything is fantastic and it's a great place to meet the locals and get a fantastic meal!

We've eaten breakfast here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Very good food, great service and a beautiful view of the mountains.

Looking for a breakfast spot where you can have hot Polish sausage with your pancakes? This is it. Just kidding. Although that was my choice and it was great. My wife had the blueberry pancakes and they were awesome. This was our second trip to CB. Make the walk uptown to this spot and you may be overwhelmed by the... More

Small place, but amazing food and service. Only place I visited twice while in Crested Butte. Huevos Rancheros were amazing. This place is a must! Right off the main road and bus line.

Atmosphere was pretty open, which I appreciate especially in breakfast joints. The staff was incredibly friendly and with the exception of an accidental coffee overfill spill, their service was great. I like big breakfasts, so although the eggs paradise (I think it was called) was very tasty, it was as hearty a proportion as I would have liked. Also, I... More

Food is ALWAYS great and worth the wait. Sometimes it's just so busy here in Paradise that the little angels who serve customers can't keep up! No worries as it comes in delicious, generous, and hearty. This is a great choice for that big breakfast you want to get you out there on the tracks and trails, when you'll need... More

We love this place. They have Gluten Free pancakes that are very good. Great french toast, good biscuts and gravy. The place is small so get there early or be preared to wait. It is worth the wait. They are great folks that are running this. They stay on top of all their customers and work hard.

Breakfast here was really good. The eggs were cooked perfect, the hashbrowns were perfect and that's not always the case in a lot of restaurants. The service was friendly and quick.
