Absolutely love the food at the Fat Cat Cafe . . . so much so that my husband and I ate there twice. Try their homemade desserts and pies! The restaurant is warm and inviting and reminded me of walking into my Grandma's kitchen. Thank you for the wonderful meals.

Our experience at the Fat Cat Cafe this past summer was distressing, as we were turned away when the place closed between breakfast and lunch. However we had breakfast there this past week and it was great. Wait staff and the owner were all warm and friendly and the food outstanding. The homemade pies looked awesome, although we didn't sample... More

My wife and I chose this restaurant at random as we walked through downtown Grand Lake. We were very pleased with the superior food and service we received. It was a fine start to a wonderful day!

We had breakfast at the Fat Cat and enjoyed the food. It was an all you can eat buffet for $14.95. But they served on paper plates. For $15 I would like a real plate...may sound picky, but would have been nicer. Great ham, bacon, sausage. The scrambled eggs, even though they were on a warming tray, were very good...not... More

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!

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.
