Nothing fancy about this place, diner atmosphere. Large stick to your rib breakfast, great if you plan on being outdoors for the rest of the day. Place gets busy very often. Kinda a dive but I like the dive charm.

What a great find--we were passing through Rifle and came here on a Sunday for brunch. The staff are fast and friendly. Food was delicious. Very relaxed atmosphere. I noticed a number of locals were eating there, too, always a good sign. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here and had a hearty breakfast.

I've only been here once, but that was enough. Customer service was lacking...but what turned me off completely...was asking for a bowl of fruit with my breakfast, and bing told "Fruit?! We don't serve fruit! Too expensive!" Uhhh. I looked around at people's plates, and they were right, nothing on them but brown foods....no color. No tomatos no veggies no... More

I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and very attentive. The food is fast and always hot. Best breakfast for the price for sure. This place is busy in the morning but you can usually get seated right away or a very short wait. Best service in town.

The place is plain and simple with good wholesome food and service is great. The food is not over priced like some places and served pipping hot.

My wife, grandson and I were on a road trip and had just left Glenwood Springs and started looking for a place to eat breakfast in Rifle. Base Camp Cafe had a lot of good reviews so we decided to try it, wow were we not disappointed. The minute the three of us walked through the door we were greeted... More
