Amazing brunch. Everything was good. Breakfast potatoes, hash, biscuits and gravy and a whole table of yummy desserts and sweets. So much food, and too little room to fit it all.... that was the only complaint. Buffet with drinks only 14. what a steal!

This is a breakfast and lunch cafe. They have a menu during the week, a buffet on weekends. We were here only on the weekend. We had the buffet on Saturday. The food was so good we returned for seconds on Sunday. There is a great selection of made from scratch pastries, scones and cinnamon rolls. Eggs on green chili,... More

Many people love this breakfast spot. I prefer a light and healthy breakfast. If you are like me, this restaurant is not for you. Side note, if you see the building from the back, the roof looks like its about to cave in. Always worried me.....

Breakfast here is a delight if for no other reason than they offer pie!! This is our favorite spot for breakfast while in Grand Lake. If you leave hungry, it's your fault!

We had brunch here on Labor Day. The buffet selections were nicely varied and the quality of the food was excellent. Welcoming and friendly service. We will definitely return on our family vacation next summer in Grand Lake.

Best breakfast in town. A little expensive, but great food and located right on the main street boardwalk.

I have been to Fat Cat many, many times and I am never disappointed. Their brunch on the weekends is the best and Sally makes the most wonderful coconut cream pie ever! I've tried to emulate her recipe many times, but never have been able to duplicate it. Love this place!

I have patronized Sally's for quite some time. The weekend buffet is generally great and well worth the money. However, my wife and I went in on a Thursday several weeks ago and ordered normal breakfasts. Small quantities, high priced coffee (the highest I have paid for a cup in the county), and biscuits that were obviously left over from... More
