It's hard to find a good, healthy breakfast while on the road. This small cafe in Durango, CO was great. Our waitress, Pam, was very friendly and saw to our every need. Egg white omelets, fruit, potatoes and plenty of coffee were all delicious!

Everyone in our party ordered breakfast and everyone was thoroughly satisfied. I was amazed at how great their gluten free pancakes were. Not only were they great but they were huge (see pics) and relatively inexpensive (2 for $5). The homefries that come with the omelets were also very delicious. The service was great and there is free self-service coffee... More

Big portions for a hearty breakfast. You'll most likely have to wait a bit to be seated because of their popularity. They have traditional breakfasts and some newer heart healthy options. I've never had lunch here, but should try!

One of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Great variety on the menu. Restaurant was crowded on Sunday morning, but not too long a wait to get in. Service efficient. Would definitely return on a trip to Durango.

Wonderful breakfasts - probably best in Durango and they service a little later which is nice. The atmosphere is a little dark and dreary, but service is always great and the food even better!

This place is a charming little cafe, it's a locals secret and has the best turkado sandwich in the world. There is never a line and they serve breakfast all day long, find it it is really good!!

I previously posted on the wrong restaurant for this one. Suffice to say they have a plethora of tasty and reasonably priced breakfast and lunch fare. Also, fast service.

We've been visiting our daughter and her family in Durango, and they suggested we go to breakfast at their favorite spot. One of the reasons our daughter goes there is that she is gluten intolerant and they serve some gluten-free and egg-free choices that are really good. However, the rest of the food is excellent also. I had a one-egg... More
