Ate breakfast here. Food was good, service was great, and atmosphere was relaxing. They have some great tee shirts for sale as well. Very nice breakfast!

Tiny little mom n' pop diner with super friendly severs and large menu of very reasonably priced meals. We went for breakfast but they offer the full menu any time of the day which is awesome! I ordered a blueberry pancake, and on the advice of our waitress, just one because she said they were dinner plate sized. My husband... More

We roadtripping from California to drop off my little brother at the local college, and we decided to stop in at the W Cafe for some breakfast after our second night. I ordered a Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs plate, and it was THE BEST version of that dish I have ever had. The batter on the steak was savory,... More

Hubby and I were driving through Gunnison on our way to Ouray and our stomachs were telling us it was time for lunch. I pulled up Tripadvisor on my phone and searched for a restaurant – I was hoping to find a restaurant that would be a favorite with the locals, good food, fast service, with a bit of Gunnison...

We had reubens, pancakes, club sandwiches for lunch with side salads, tator tots and onion rings. Really delicious!! Friendly and very fast service. We're so glad we stopped in. Was a great break on our road trip.

Busy, very popular place for breakfast...for good reason. The food is simple fare done well. Cheerful service, they've been doing this for years and have the routine down. There might be a wait, but as long as the weather is nice, wander around the street. There is enough to see to keep you occupied, it's worth the wait.

Stopped here while traveling through to Northern Colorado. The TexMex Turkey was amazing! My boyfriend got the spinach and bacon salad and loved it. The Maple dressing is delicious as well as the chipotle mayo. I also got some things I needed from the attached organic store. Win win! Stop looking, come here. Yum!

We ended up eating here two days in a row because it was so good. I had the breakfast burrito and it was huge. I should not have finished it all but it was just too good to stop. The staff was very friendly as they buzzed around making sure everyone was taken care of. They were almost fun to... More

I believe I'm something of an aficionado when it comes to chicken fried steak and I think that it's safe to say that the "W" has the best I've ever eaten. This is no freezer to the fryer steak you'll get most places but a large, thick, tender and freshly battered cube steak. I prefer mine as a breakfast dish... More
