Went for breakfast and the service was good but the food was not. Pancakes were tough to cut with a fork. Hot chocolate was watered down. And this is what my children ordered. Pretty simple....I ordered eggs that had no flavor or texture and a some sausage. Pretty bland....

We had to be in Rifle for the health fair, and checked Trip advisor, for some ideas on where to eat after our blood draw. Some of the reviews for the Base Camp Cafe were awful while others were quite flattering, so we decided to give it a chance. The mounted creatures were less than appetizing, however after a few...

Were sent here by guy at front desk at hotel, weren't disappointed. Almost gave up looking, but finally found it. Place was packed, but service was better than most. Wife had the cinnamon roll french toast, which was beyond description. Still can't find anything close to the goodness of the breakfast we had here. A true hidden gem.

I absolutely love this place! We moved to Rifle earlier this year and have gone back and forth between Base Camp Cafe and the other place across the street from them, and since the food and service is generally so crappy over there, our one and only breakfast spot in Rifle is Base Camp Cafe!! The service is always spot... More

Very attentive servers! The place was packed and we STILL were recipients of great service. Our food was good for the cost, however I wish there were some healthier options now in Rifle. We never ran out of coffee, and enjoyed our experience immensely. Well done!

We had driven around looking for a place for breakfast and saw this little place. Hungry with a long drive ahead we went in. We came out full with a good taste in our mouths.

This place isn't worth the discomfort. I got pretty ill from eating here. The wait staff was unprofessional, rude (stared and gave snide looks), the food was not good, and the coffee was worse.
