Ate breakfast here and they have a very nice menu. There was a wait but offered free coffee and the friendly staff made the wait seem like nothing. They have gluten free options and the omelet I ordered was delicious. A great way to start our day.

We've been coming here for almost 40 yrs and have never been disappointed, whether for breakfast or lunch. The service is friendly and efficient. The sandwich are great. Most recently we had Rubens and Clubs. Fries are perfect.

I was in the mood for a good hamburger and found this cafe near my hotel. I was walking so it was convenient. Service, food real good; good prices; plenty of food to eat per serving.

Good food, good, friendly service, no wait when we arrived. Your average breakfast diner/restaurant. Nothing on the menu so unusual that you feel like you have to try. But something for everyone. Even my husband who usually orders breakfast skillets found an alternative since this restaurant does not offer them.

Our party of four was looking forward to a great breakfast before heading for the slopes. We did not have to wait for a table and the service was good. The food, however, was nothing special. Two of us ordered pancakes, eggs, and sausage. The eggs and sausage was quite good, but the pancakes were well short of great. Basically... More

Great, attentive wait staff. Did not have any wait to be seated, good prices and generous menu offerings. Four breakfast choices across the three-generational dining party with three offerings being of exceptional quality. The fourth was not especially good. The sausage gravy tasted like paste with little evidence of sausage and was poured over an un-split biscuit which was quite... More

We happened upon this place and it turned out to be the #1 Trip Advisor restaurant in Silverthorne, for good reason. Food and service were great! And apparently mostly locals eat there. Everything is made from scratch, very tasty. Our waitress was super friendly.

Nice friendly family atmosphere, great food! I had the trout with pinion butter that was great. Many were having breakfast that looked delicious too! Would definitely rat here again.
