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

This is always our first stop in Steamboat. Breakfasts are excellent so they have steady business all through the morning. Don't miss this place!

Stopped off downtown for a bite to eat as we were passing through Steamboat springs on our motorcycles and were pleasantly surprised to find this place was just the kind of place we enjoy eating in. There were obviously locals there who have been there many times! We had a very nice server with a wonderful sense of humor who... More

The breakfast menu has all the favorites. If you're on the spicy side try the Spicy Huevos. A nice balance of all the ingredients - not a bunch of beans. The corned beef hash was nicely browned, not burnt. We watched to the French toast with fruit go by. The fruit was fresh, not the over sweet syrup with som... More

This cafe is only open for breakfast and lunch. We have had breakfast there three times in the ten days we have been in Steamboat. It is right in the middle of town with outside seating area. Great breakfasts and fast service. Lots of homemade items including great pies.

We stopped in for lunch. We had the grilled cheese and onion rings (thinner as opposed to thick ones) and then the grilled chicken sandwich with coleslaw. It's a nice little atmosphere. Food came out quick and hot. We like this kind of place so we were very happy. Breakfast is served all day and lunch from 11am-2pm. They have... More
