Good Breakfast, fast...

Went in before taking a long drive across state... had Corned Beef Hash and eggs, with hash browns, and biscuit with gravy, canned hash but cooked right, and good homemade biscuit, very good service, but like every other Cortez Restaurant.... BAD Décor!

The Diner is in an old store front on main street. It gives it some character. We were told to sit anywhere it was empty. The walls have small plaques with remarks for us to get a laugh. I had the French Toast Special. Two toasts, two eggs and ham. It was just what I needed to get back on... More

Stopped in for breakfast before heading out of town and so glad we did. It's a small hometown diner mostly filled by locals. 2 egg special with hashbrowns, toast and coffee - good portion size and reasonable price. Biscuits and gravy were delicious-make sure to get the sausage gravy with big cut up chunks of breakfast sausage. Service was friendly... More

We had a late breakfast here (my first visit). They serve breakfast all day. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros and they were delicious! The corn tortillas were fresh and tasty and the green chile was perfect. I had never visited before, and will definitely return.

On our trip through from Moab, stopped at Cortez dog park, asked a local where to eat. He suggested Pippos. Good chili omelette and breakfast burrito. Fast and excellent service. Fun interior. Good location in middle of town.

Remember when you used to go have a wonderful breakfast, sit at a counter and drink some good coffee?? This is the place! Small, so be willing to wait or sit at the counter. It will be worth it ... yummy French toast, crispy bacon ... I have to stop; my mouth is watering!

As a large amount of my reviews are for breakfast, because breakfast is the bomb! And this place does it right, got a Swiss and ham with green chili omelet, hash browns and biscuit and gravy. They lose a star for not having sausage in there gravy. But all was good. Hot fresh and served with a smile. Go early... More

Stopped in on Labor Day morning with a group of six for breakfast. We got a seat right away and the service was prompt and friendly. Overall the food was average fare but it hit the spot! If you stop, know that the food is well prepared but nothing special.
