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.

We ate breakfast here on our last day in Steamboat, wish we had more days left!! I ordered the Chile Relleno Omelet and my husband ordered the Ortega Steak and Eggs. Both were amazing! The food came out quick and was nice and hot. Service was outstanding! Our waitress made sure we never ran out of coffee and water. We... More

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

Nice place downtown for breakfast and lunch. Food was good, not spectacular. Biscuits and gravy are tasty, but probably not the best I've had. My wife had an avocado omelet and it was good and fresh ingredients. Service was excellent at a time when restaurant was full. Overall a decent place for meal.

This place just fell short. Food was not good. Biscuits & gravy were pretty bad. Sent back!! Coffee is so strong with an awful flavor. Hubby's meal was a tad better. Waitress was mediocre, honestly I don't recommend & we won't go back. Oh & send a meal back & still get charged half?? Wow.....

This is a favorite of our son's family and with good reason. The food is excellent but it is the service that puts it over the top for us. You can tell when a restaurant has long term servers who know how to be efficient while being pleasant and knowledgeable. Definitely a place you will want to have breakfast when... More
