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

I have been going to (Moe's) The Mountain Cafe for two decades. When I am there I feel like I am back in the Bronx at my favorite eatery, A place where the owner cooks the food, and his family serves it to my family. A place where my kids have grown up eating. A place where when I arrive... More

This was such a pleasant surprise! Though this place is definitely not "fancy", it is immaculately clean and "homey". The food is simply great - best eggs, cooked exactly right! By far the most delicious huevos rancheros I've ever had! The usual fare is on the menu, and there are three specials each day. The breakfast burrito is next to... More

Starving and faced with a Sunday breakfast/brunch decision in Fort Collins. Instead of opting for a 45 minute wait at other popular spots, we settled at Mountain Cafe with no wait for a table. However, it did take 45 minutes to get food once we sat down. The restaurant wasn't that busy and there were empty tables. People were very... More

I love this place, great food and great people, what else do you need. Try the Persian plate for lunch and say hello to the cook Moe.

If you're looking for a looking for a place to eat with a real nice homey-feel, this is it. The atmosphere makes you feel very comfortable and welcomed. The servers are very friendly, and the food is just as great! It's nothing too special or fancy, and it's completely affordable! I've loved this place for as long as I can... More

Find another breakfast spot if you are visiting Fort Collins. I am a very patient person when it comes to food service, but this place took FOREVER. Also, when I asked the server for an iced coffee, she asked whether I wanted regular coffee or some special kind they carried. When I asked what the special kind was, she pointed... More
