Worth the stop!

I stopped in based on the reviews and I'm glad I did. Unusual and delicious savory French toast. What a great combination of flavors. I took a giant cinnamon roll to go and I'm sure it will be great later. The service was friendly and quick.

This is a Ft. Collins icon. We like to take out of town friends there for breakfast for the good food and a true northern Colorado experience. There is always a wait so plan on hanging out for a while.

Down-home cooking; beautiful surroundings with exposed brick, front counter filled with cinnamon rolls, mugs on racks for the 'regulars.' This place is family owned and has breakfast and lunch items to please just about anyone. From soups and salads to rich, hearty breakfasts, this is a Colorado mainstay....don't miss it.

There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said. Found them on trip advisor and decided to go. Based on comments, I knew to order breakfast food not lunch, and went with the cinnamon roll french toast. It was fantastic. I was there during a weekday so while there were a decent number of people in there, service was very... More

This is the oldest restaurant in Fort Collins. It's very popular and there's usually a 30 ish minute wait time on weekends. While you wait there's free coffee or you can purchase a Bloody Mary or Mimosa. The food is absolutely delicious. The staff is super nice and the service is great.

The fact that breakfast goes beyond 11am is awesome. I had the special of the breakfast sandwich and it was great. All of the dishes were very tasty and I can see why it is #2 in Fort Collins. We didn't get the cinnamon rolls - we are saving for next time!

This place has an fantastic and hardy breakfast. We have been a few times now and love the options. It can we quite busy to get it with a wait many times, however the wait staff are always friendly and welcoming during all the hustle and bustle. The wait is with it for a good breakfast.

Stopped and just purchased some cinnamon rolls to go. Love they now keep the frosting in a separate container. GOOD STUFF!

Lots of choices for breakfast, and tasty, but not over the top yummy. The cinnamon rolls are very good though. And the service is surprisingly good considering what a huge place it is. They must be very well organized to handle that kind of volume.

Consistently awesome service and food. Love everything about the place except the wait for a table, sometimes. But that is why there is almost always a wait, because it is a landmark restaurant that will probably be around for another 75 years.
