Just so so. Nice atmosphere. Fast service. Food wasn't what I was expected, I ordered country ham and eggs, but got some strange looking piece of ham, it was eatable. But I won't go back. Parking is tight, as they are only open for breakfast...More

Taken here by a native several times. Obviously lots of regulars come here and it can be very crowded. The food is standard diner fare.

We had breakfast ay Wade's and it is good food for a good price. There was a line at 10a for breakfast...sort of a traditional 'old-style' cafe that continues to be popular with the locals.

We finally visited Wade's after driving by it for years and will continue to drive to other breakfast restaurants in the future. It's a basic restaurant with nothing special about it. We were able to get a table shortly after we arrived for a weekend...More

Wade's is by far my restaurant of choice for breakfast. If you like some down home cooking and huge portions, look no further. The pancakes are huge and they always cater to my egg-white only omelets and scrambled. The restaurant is usually very busy, get...More

Alway excellent, the service is outstanding. The food is home cooked and we haven't had anything we have not liked. Open breakfast and lunch.

We have never been to Wades, even though we have lived her for 30 years. We went with another couple who have been there before. The service (Krystal) was great and the food orders were large and inexpensive. Will go again for breakfast.

First time there. In on a Wednesday at 11:30 for a late breakfast. VERY NOISY. As soon as I walked in, the noise level almost made us leave. They need to change the ceiling to a material that absorbs sound. Very crowded table area. With...More

We ate at Wade's again this morning and I realized that I have never reviewed this great restaurant. They have the best pancakes in Colorado Springs. The old fashioned kind like I remember from years ago but are hard to find. The service has always...More

Don't see that as as an option on their menu.

Do they serve real butter? Too many places serve oleo and call it butter, young folks don't know the difference. At home I always pack some butter in my wife's purse just in case. Since we're on a trip, need to know. So do I have to bring my own butter? Thanks
