We came for breakfast. Prices are a little high due to the fact that you have to purchase everything individually but the food is spectacular. There is always a wait there no matter on the time of year or time you come. Expect it to take awhile. Food does come to the table fairly quick considering the amount of people... More

When we go on long trips,restaurant food just gets tiresome, and we get tired of looking through long menus listing 15 ingredients for each item, with things you have never heard of. While it is fun to try new things, and we certainly enjoy doing that, this is a nice respite when travel ennui sets in. This is what you... More

We stopped in one morning while vacationing in estes park this past week as we were looking for some breakfast in the late morning. Good portions, great food, and a nice family diner atmosphere. We were very happy with our short time there. It has a few lunch items, but its main focus is breakfast. They close at 2 pm.

All the staff was very friendly and very accommodating to our young kids. My pancake was the best I'd ever had and the bacon was perfect. Service was quick. We were very happy with our experience!

Our group of 8 had breakfast here two mornings and everything was excellent. One in our group said it was the best Eggs Benedict she'd ever eaten. The service was fast as well as our tickets.

We stopped by after a sunrise hike in the park. It was already busy but our wait was less than was predicted. Service was fast and courteous, portions were large and the food was excellent. The blueberry pancake was one of the best I've had!

What a lovely place. Great service, very yummy breakfast! Love all the choices and the food quality is perfect. It isn't cheap, but well worth every cent! Great coffee.....even dark roast and flavored options.
