Great biscuits and gravy and my wife's blueberry pancakes were done just right. They are very quick to refill your coffee cup too. Only complaint is that it is a bit crowded with tight seating and not a lot of room. Worth a visit though!

Stopped in for breakfast on a Monday morning. The place is small and was full. I am guessing that on the weekends that there will be wait list. That said, it is definitely worth visiting. The menu offers a good variety of breakfast items. The four of us opted for a variety of dishes. Here is the breakdown: Mex Brex... More

Food was tasty, but coffee was weak and bland. Service was decent. If this place expands and upgrades it's coffee, it will rate 5.

I should mention that neither of us ordered a cinnamon roll, but the teenager at the table next to us did, and wow -- that was a sight to behold! We say next time we go, maybe we'll get one to share. This cafe is fun -- there's a little train going around along the ceiling, and fun stuff to... More

Went for breakfast. Line was out the door at 830am. Food was good. French toast and pancakes were the best. Hashbrowns were just OK. It was $32 for a family of 4 with juice.

Just happened to come across this little place on our travels. The food was good, the service was good, but the personalities of the servers were cold. I recommend for the food only!!

Stopped here on the way from the airport to our rental home. Two adults and two kids who were tired, hungry and cranky. The restaurant was small but very popular. Food was excellent. I had the Mex Brex ... it was wonderful. Everyone loved the food and the atmosphere. A great first stop during our first trip to beautiful Durango,... More

Way over-cooked hash browns made the entire plate dry - no accommodations for baby...the only clamp-on seat they had didn't even stay on the table, so so dangerous! Waitress couldn't even substitute a sausage patty for the sausage link on kid menu. Used to be so much fun with the overhead train attraction...guess it doesn't work any more. Think we'll... More

We had read positive reviews so we sought out Oscar's for breakfast when we were in town. Surprised too find it hidden in a shopping mall, when we entered it was bustling and inviting. Our waitress was were pleasant and served us promptly. My order of the Verde Breakfast was way beyond my expectations. After a few minutes she checked... More
