“Awesome breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

I was a little disappointed that it was a chain breakfast joint until I tasted it. We went back a couple more times during the week we were there, and I was equally impressed with each new choice off the menu. And on top of really great breakfast food, we got to enjoy the mountain view in the distance right from our window booth. This is a must for breakfast. My husband and I both loved it.

“Can't imagine a better place for breakfast in Estes Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2010

This is a great place for breakfast. The biggest problem that we had was trying to narrow down the many great choices on the menu. The food did not disappoint. This is one place that we can't wait to go back to.

“Good place for breakfast or lunch.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2010

A lot of glowing reviews here, so we decided to try it. We went for lunch on July 4, so it was very busy. We had to wait for a table. The food was typical for many chains of this type, but was not extraordinary. Good, but not great.

“lacks oringinality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2010

ok food but not worth the wait. the dishes were not as fabulously tasting as described. I did like the waffles though the rest of the food at our table was not that filling or tasty. felt rushed as soon as our food was delivered, so was our check. I do not like feeling rushed.
