Home style breakfast

We had a homestyle breakfast here and it was okay. They obviously were short staffed and that was a bit annoying since we had plans but I've worked in food service too so I get that it happens sometimes. Overall it wasn't a great experience but if you see something on the menu that looks good to... read more

One star is too much for this place. French toast was burned. Waitress was very rude and acted put out to have to take our order. I would starve before I ate here again.

Our first breakfast in Ouray was here. The black dog didn't bother us because we have big dogs at home and it seemed to add to the charm of the place. The waitress was nice and her daughter was cute as she brought us the bill. I too noticed that this place hardly ever had people inside but my dad... More

We had dinner twice at the Silver Nugget during our stay in Ouray, CO back in early October. The food was good both times. I had their chicken parmigiana and spaghetti - delicious. The second visit I had grilled chicken. The chicken needed to be sent back to the kitchen for a bit more cooking but they immediately took care... More

Worst breakfast I never ate! One bite is all it took. Paid and left. Not to mention the dog at the end of our table trying to get food. Stay away!

We stopped for breakfast (French Miner). Delicious French toast and eggs. We were greeted by an adorable lab named Bryson. I don't remember the name of the happy woman who waited on us but she was friendly and took good care of us. Glad we stopped in.

We stopped in and the beautiful surroundings drew us in to actually eat at this establishment. I must say once seated you will soon discover that there is nothing spectacular about the food. It is fine but once you have you not be drawn back in. In the Fall we were still swatting at the flies and listening to the... More

I liked the location and the property has curb appeal. I did not like the food, it was average at best.

We stopped in for breakfast, I had the French toast special very good flavor, came with 2 eggs, bacon or sausage patty and coffee. I am not a coffee drinker so she offered me hot or iced tea or soda. I took the iced tea, too strong for me. Husband had the frontier breakfast which was trout seasoned perfectly, 2... More
