We'll Be Back!

Breakfast on our way out of town. Small but efficient with great food and service. Whole wheat blueberry pecan pancakes were very good! Will make this a regular stop!

The breakfast was fantastic! The service was great and the decor, including table tops, were made by the owner. When we go back to Ruidoso, we will definitely make this one of our go to eateries!

It was a quaint place but inside was a bit crowded. The food was good, but not great. I had eggs Benedict and my wife had a veggie omelette - mine was good but certainly did not overly impress me. My wife said hers was good but nothing outstanding. We went for breakfast and the wait staff was attentive. Just... More

With such good reviews we were looking forward to trying this place it. But we arrived at 2pm on the dot and they were closed for the day. ??? They must be good because they apparently make enough money in the morning to close afternoons.

No one to seat you when you come in but after I asked the staff in the kitchen, they said sit anywhere. I noticed that... More

Very deceiving looking little place! It is at the end of the street of shops and restaurants. It looks tiny and simple. Surprise! Great food and great service! Best tortilla soup I've had in a long time. Have to give it a try!

We ate here several times over our long weekend stay in town. It was recommended by a stop owner on the strip as being we're all the locals eat. We had to wait for a table, the place is small inside with a few outside tables. Food didn't disappoint! Don't miss this place... Enjoy!
