We have been there twice. In both cases, the food was ordinary, the service slow and the facility much too crowded. Hardly the best in Durango.

The food was great. The coffee was great. Our hosts brought us here because this is one of their favorite spots for breakfast. I didn't eat again until dinner! Very casual, very friendly. I had a breakfast burrito and was warned that it was very large and I'm proud to say that I retained my membership in the clean-plate club.... More

We were in Durango for a soccer tournament, and wanted something more than a hotel breakfast. Luckily we followed the recommendation of others and tried it out! The line to get in was scary at first, but it moved quickly. Great atmosphere! Will be back for sure!

The French Toast has a crunchy outside which was unusual...must be deepfried. Very tasty but of course sweet. Service was good, but the place is tiny and needs to expand into the space next door.

We have Trip Advisor to thank for this wonderful find, as it's in a nondescript shopping strip. Every item of our breakfast was well prepared. My scramble had cheddar and jack cheeses and was topped with avocado and crispy bacon--outstanding! My husband's ham steak was a winner, too. Although our server was extremely busy, she kept our coffee refilled and... More

We went here for lunch one rainy Durango day. This place is tiny with a counter and not many tables. This is a traditional diner at its best. The food was good, the service was friendly. The only drawback is they don't serve breakfast after 11 and I wanted breakfast for lunch.

This is our breakfast choice when in Durango. Skip the continental breakfasts at the hotels and treat yourself to a great experience. The open early and fill up fast, mostly with locals who are very engaging with the travelers. We have always had excellent food and service. Their fresh baked cinnamon rolls and pies appear to be very popular (we... More
