Traditional eatery. old fashion comfort food. Friendly, sometimes overworked, staff. They don't watch your calories, so you better. local tradition.

Its got a nice dining room, they feature live music at times, a decent bar. Food is ok, nothing I'd write home about. It features salads, sandwiches, and burgers. They have a chalkboard sign out front declaring that they have the best burger in town... its not. I had a preformed patty and it was cooked well done. I can... More

After touring the wine cellar we stopped in the cafe for a late lunch. The burgers and fries were good but not exceptional. Every table was filled with locals and tourists and refilled as they emptied yet the staff managed to keep up and maintain there cool. Good Job.

Things go wrong in the kitchen and it isn't the servers fault. They are your interface with the establishment and having worked in restaurants for 30 years I am always polite and friendly. So when I informed the wonderful waitress that the beans on her favorite breakfast were not cooked you might expect an apology and interest in making things... More

Decent Cafe food, nice atmosphere. Service is really not good. They are busy, but really??? Dont be in a rush and you will have to remind waitress many times what you need. we visited three times over weekend as one of the only places in town.

This cafe is in central Palisade, and not bad if you don't have time to go to Grand Junction. We had a patty melt and a bacon cheeseburger, both $8.95. Not bad, not great; friendly staff and prompt service.

We were in Paisades on a Monday. Not a good idea as everything is closed. This place is smart to be open on Monday. I ordered the burger and fries, both were terrible. The burger tasted like it was right from the freezer and the fries had a weird taste to them. Our server was very nice and the restaurant... More

Not a big selection, but there is is done well.Nice decor with the feeling of locals but welcoming. When in in doubt, keep it simple, stupid. Was there before August of '13, but that's the furthest back I could go and couldn't leave it blank.

There are not many choices in Palisade but I would drive some distance for their french fries. Hot and slightly seasoned. The cole slaw was good as well. All very home made. Had tacos. Good but the fish taco was made with some encrusted fish. A good place to stop on a hot day.

In the middle of the farmers' market is this cafe. We found it cool and comforting with the wooden furniture on a hot day. Service was friendly and efficient and correct! Good comfort food service with a smile. We sat in the table at the window and watched the goings on at the market. The sweet potato french fries were... More
