What more is there? The food is NOT bland, I have never had to wait very long for our orders, the wait staff has always been friendly and polite, and I always leave stuffed. Don't knock a restaurant because your child will only set one meal for breakfast. It's not their fault. I used to think Snooze was the best... More

Doug's Day Diner in Fort Collins has really struck a nice balance between a good, healthy breakfast and a wonderfully delightful culinary experience. Most people don't set out to have a culinary treat when looking for a breakfast restaurant, however, Doug's manages to do just that. The atmosphere is nice, quaint and very appropriate for the menu being offered. The... More

Well, I can't actually say how breakfast was because we didn't make it that far. I came in with a Starbucks coffee and oatmeal for my four year old (that won't eat anything else for breakfast). The waitress asked for our drink orders and my spouse ordered coffee, and milk for the kids. I told her I had my own... More

My husband liked his burger, my breakfast burrito was average. They have a very limited menu for vegetarians. Good quality ingredients but still leaving a lot to be desired.

Ate here on our last day before heading out, only wish we would of located it earlier. Its packed all the time is the only complaint, but if your ok eating at the breakfast counter there is usually a seat or 2 open. We both had a Mexican style breakfast and the portions are huge on the potato side lacking... More

This is the greatest breakfast place. The food is amazing. The service is out standing. The home made Bisquits are yummy. Never had a bad meal yet. Make sure to ask for Jordan she is super GREAT. Love you Jordan. We keep going back.

I go here several times a month. They have the best New Mexican style red chile in town. It's fantastic. They make delicious burritos and sandwiches from scratch, among other things. The service is friendly (not always the fastest though) and they'll do nice things for you if you ask (like give you some extra red chile if you ask... More

This place has the reputation of being the "best breakfast in Fort Collins" and came highly recommended. While the food was good, I don't believe it lived up to the hype. There was a considerable wait on a weekend morning (1 hour plus) and they were so overloaded that the service staff wasn't very attentive. I had their omelette -... More

It's a diner, not a 5 start restaurant. I had the Blue salad. It had loads of fresh, fresh veggies, crisp lettuce and yummy dressing. It was enough for 2 people, but I gave it the "ol college try" and certainly made my dent. My husband had the soup of the day which was chicken tarragon. I tasted it and... More

In any other town Doug's might get an exceptional rating, but Fort Collins has so many great restaurants that it's hard to stand out. Noticeable pluses for Doug's is their bacon and their portions. Noteworthy minus is that all the food seems a little bland.
