Three of us had breakfast here prior to going on an elk hunt. All three of us had different dishes and all three were excellent!!

Kate's is a local favorite for breakfast and lunch. Great daily specials. Omelets, waffles and breakfast burritos are all excellent. Patio dining in the summer. Don't miss Kate's.

While visiting the visitors center we were told we had to eat here. Breakfast was recommended but we were unable to get there in time so lunch it was. We shared the turkey panini. It was perfect. And oh my goodness, the home fries...WoW! A small quaint little restaurant. We will be going back!

The menu for breakfast or lunch is magnificent, healthy, delicious, body and heartwarming, served by an excellent staff. I loved the artwork and photography on... More

We were in R'way this past Monday/Tues and stopped in for breakfast on the way back home in Durango. The selections were interesting and complete with some nice specials. Service was fast and friendly as well and it is a nice place inside as well. We understand lunch is good as well but we got there a bit to late... More

After reading other reviews, we were expecting a great experience but were seriously disappointed. The food was nothing special and the prices were steep. The roast beef sandwich was dry .. some au jus might have helped .. and the side options were limited, unless you wanted to add significantly to your bill. They should provide all tables with a...
