Cute local place

Very small cafe full of locals. The food was excellent, plentiful and cheap. My husband I both had benedicts on a house made biscuit. His had home made sausage gravy on it that was very tasty.

I just love the Green Chile and Cheese Breakfast Tamales at College Drive Cafe. We eat breakfast here on our last day of spring break every year. College Drive makes a yummy Giant Cinnamon Roll and some rockin' pancakes. Our family has never had a bad or average meal here. Everything is amazing.

Based on TA recommendations we chose College Drive Café for breakfast the morning we left Durango. We like to eat at local places and find the food usually better than anywhere else. This place was "over the top" good. My wife had the Southwest Eggs Benedict with chorizo and green chili sauce and I had the biscuits and gravy with... More

The College Drive Cafe does it right. Awesome food, great service, fantastic prices, and large portions. I will say this is one of THE BEST breakfasts I've had at a restaurant. I will be back next time I am in Durango.

This is a place my wife likes to go to on a Wednesday morning. Since they are closed on Monday and Tuesday. Small place with a great staff. They have all been very attentive to our needs.

Amazing breakfast! Biscuits and gravy were to die for! French toast was only 3 dollars for a side. Egg dishes were great! Will definitely be back!
