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. Every breakfast I have eaten there has been great. But, wow, the tamales I had yesterday were the best. I suggest one of... More

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!

My wife and I stopped in for breakfast before heading to Silverton and discovered that the great comments found on Trip Advisor were very true. The meal was very good and the portions were generous, The staff was great as well as the service. We will not hesitate to return.

Mrs. M and I found this place on TA while travelling out West. It looked good and, in fact, the food was great and the service was too. So what's the problem Kerr? The noise level was off the charts making the experience a jarring one for both of us. At least on the day we went it was where... More

Very good home cooked breakfast. The raspberry jam seemed home made and the food was fresh, hot and tasted great. Very good staff and the drinks refilled repeatedly. When you first enter look for the waiting list notebook on the wall to the right. You just add your name with party size and they will call you when they are... More
