Great breakfast and service!

This is one of my favorite places to get a hearty breakfast before hitting the slopes. They conveniently open at 6 so you can get there nice and early. The food is not fancy, but well prepared and tasty. I got the veggie hobo today and it was delicious. My husband got a side of avocado with his... read more

The Shack Cafe is a humble cafe with a warming atmosphere as a diner from the staff and customers alike. The food was obviously not five star but who expects that from such a cosy location. The service was homely and I would recommend the hot chocolate on a cold winter's day.

I only tried one dish, a french dip sandwich. It was okay. It wasn't particularly tasty, it was like ok diner food. The service was quick and friendly. It had a nice down home feeling. I would give it a try again and try something else as the effort was there.

Whatever you order it comes out hot, delicious and appetizing. The wait staff is very friendly, the prices are amazingly modest and the quantity is plentiful. We ate there twice during our trip and will plan to return when we visit Steamboat Springs in the future.

What a gem, had one of the best eggs Benedict's I have had in a long time. The service was very fast. It's a small place but it's definitely a cute breakfast and lunch spot. I definitely recommend it if you want a good breakfast fast
