great food . . . and Tara likes to serenade the guests! Don't miss the cinnamon rolls, if they haven't run out. Omelets, pancakes, green chile - they've got it all!

Awesome, friendly service, a menu that has everything, and dee-licious food!! Stopped by here based on other reviews and was not disappointed. p.s. We didn't get a cinnamon role, but man do they look good (and are HUGE).

Food was excellent! I was there with 5 other people and we all got different things. Everything I tried was excellent! The staff was super friendly too! I highly recommend going here, it was the best food of our 7 day Colorado vacation.

We had heard a lot about how great this restaurant was so we decided to try it out! We put our name in at 10:00 am on Sunday morning and were told it might be a 25-30 minute wait. We thought, fine, we're willing to...More
