The eggs benedict is amazing, as is the French toast and breakfast burrito. We went multiple times during our trip!

We go here every time we are in Ruidoso. Been coming here for over 40 years. Wish they had more space, waiting in November can be cold.

In addition to excellent, friendly service, this small cafe has excellent food. The half order of huevos rancheros was plenty.

The best eggs benedict ever! Really great if you add a side of green sauce. My favorite place to eat breakfast or lunch. Omelets are really good and the combination Mexican plate is delicious. The owners and staff are very friendly.

Can be crowded on weekends, but the breakfasts are delicious and plenty of food. Good coffee. Nice people, but not a dress up place. They also serve good Mexican food. Moderately priced.

We found this place had great reviews on Trip Advisor and Urbanspoon. We sat outside and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. The Spanish omelette was great. The staff were friendly and it appeared to be a local favorite.

This is not a large place so it can fill quickly. We went on a Saturday early and sat outside. We enjoyed our pancakes and the Eggs Benedict (which is just offered on the weekend).
