This restaurant is among the worst i have tried anywhere. The food was warmed over and poor quality. I have been here is previous years but hoped it would be better this year. No change.

The service was quick and the food was delicious. Portion size was a little small for the price, but very good. Great outdoor seating with a view. Open from 7:00 to 11:00 am. Cash only, so be prepared.

Weak coffee. Ok food. Pricey for small portions. Service with a snarl. Pretty sure I would not return here.

Cute little place! I ordered the pineapple, coconut, cool whip topped French toast and it was amazing! My husband ordered the omelet and hash browns which he said were average but good. Partial view of the mountains, very fast and easy to find!

No complaints about our food, but nothing was outstanding, or special. We ate here four years ago and had a very similar experience. We probably won't go back.

Good food and quick service. They have the basic breakfast items, nothing special and not fancy. You cant really go wrong. Cash only.

Ok place for breakfast. The oven was down so we did not get to try the cinnamon rolls. ☹ Service was friendly and fast.
