Been cranking out great breakfasts for decades

The Mountain Cafe has always been and continues to be a great place for breakfast. Everything is made fresh and from scratch with good, fresh ingredients; I wish that I could find eggs this good to cook at home. Friendly, non-pretentious place with good food: what more could you ask?

One of the true Fort Collins local favorites, this is a great place to enjoy a warm and tasty breakfast. If you don' splurge on one of their incredible cinnamon rolls, don't miss out on the cinnamon roll toast. It is terrific!

I have been coming here as long as I can remember and it has stayed just as good as it was when I was 8 years old. Never had a bad experience with the food, people or establishment. Thank you Mo for many years of amazing service! I reccomend for anyone local or visiting to give Mountain Cafe a try!... More

Completely unpretentious, really good food, and excellent friendly service! Make sure you order a side of salsa with your meal… it's pretty spicy and really delicious. Bacon's great too!

This is where I come every time I'm in the mood for steak and eggs. Quiet mom & pop. Never a wait. Steak is consistently tender and the potatoes always hot and crispy. Good wifi too. Outdoor courtyard dining in warm weather is great place to get some work done. Skip the breakfast lines in Old Town and make your... More

I had never been to the Mountain Cafe, a place my parents frequent, until yesterday. Call me biased as I looked at the less than attractive exterior. Thus my surprise and decision to write a review after my experience of joining them for lunch at "one of their favorite breakfast spots in town" was so positive. Not only were they... More

A family friend recommended this place to my wife and I. My wife has been hooked on this place ever since, in fact we pay a visit a couple times a week. Everything at Mountain café is fresh, flavorful and delicious. Their breakfast burrito and blueberry pancakes are on point, and definitely a must try! The staff is very friendly,... More
