Great Service, Decent Food

We usually have either lunch or breakfast here while visiting Steamboat. The service is fast and very efficient and the food is fresh and there's quite a variety. Right in the heart of town.

Breakfast was delicious and servers were super friendly. Kept up with coffee refills and they did not mind I was enjoying the beautiful weather outside and working on my computer for quite a while. I tipped accordingly but they did not know that prior and the service was fantastic. I will definitely be back and highly recommend The Shack Cafe!

This is one of our favorite spots for breakfast before heading out to fly fish. Great reasonably priced food and very cordial waitresses.

Very busy, and not a lot of seating, but great breakfast. Mediterranean omelet was excellent! Average service. Outdoor and indoor seating.

Great location, great service, decent food. We ordered breakfast which arrived very quickly! Ham as well as the eggs were a little overdone, but were still good! Hash browns were excellent!! I also liked all the little extras, fresh jelly on table, different types of hot sauce, very clean place and sidewalk seating. Green chili looked good, should have ordered... More

The food was good but nothing exceptional. The service was excellent. Our kids loved the pancakes. The food was a great value for the price and in Steamboat, food is overpriced.

Ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and it was hanging off the platter. Eggs were cooked perfect and service was friendly and fast. Prices were decent and I would recommend this to people I like. 👍

Went here twice for breakfast last week. Very good food. Fast service. Great vibe. Kind of an aging hippie crowd I guess. I'd be a regular if I lived in Steamboat. Good raisin toast.

Nice place for breakfast although we only came here because we could get into Winonas. Staff very friendly and gave great service. Eggs and bacon good although hash browns were disappointing and tasteless. Nice coffee.

Food was good and very reasonable but it was so hot, no air conditioning so I had to walk outside for some cooler air
