We stopped in just before closing and they let us in anyway and we're wonderful! Adorable place! Fab bacon and eggs, and I love a place that gives two small pancakes in lieu of toast as an option. We sat at the bar and chatted with the adorable waitress😊.

We first came for breakfast. Lots of food at a great price. Interesting combination of scrambled eggs and an omelette called a "scramlette" or "scromlette"; however it is named, it was great. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Apparently there is a new cook; he seems to be doing a great job. We returned for lunch a few days later... More

The menu does have lunch fare offered, but they do breakfast until closing and we had been told to eat their fabulous breakfast. My husbands Popeye omelet was delicious and large; of course, this was a spinach omelet. I had the salmon eggs Benedict and if I lived in Crested Butte, I would have it weekly! Both of these come...

Another regular of our places we like to visit when in CB. We have had lunch here often but never brunch. Other than a long wait (no reservations) the experience was good. My wife and I both had eggs benedict. Some of the best we have had, and highly recommended. Topped of with a minosa, it made the perfect brunch.

The breakfast choices we made were very good. Service was very slow, and they did not check back to see how everything was, but they were very busy. DO NOT get the hot chocolate, it did not taste like hot chocolate at all, more like water with a chocolate color. The entrees were very large, and I think we could... More

This place was nothing great, but the food was fresh and the kitchen was really clean. The acoustics in this place made it hard to hear your server, or vice versus. The green chile was really, really spicy. Try it out if you like the heat!

My family and I stopped in here for breakfast. Everything was good...the special eggs dishes, pancakes, veggie sausages, toast, potatoes, coffee, etc. Portions were healthy. We had great, friendly service (even with a huge line). If you walk in and they are busy, don't fret. Just add your name to the list and grab the local paper while you wait.... More

Went there two days in a row it was so good. The corned beef hash was awesome. He coffee was only okay, but the food made up for it.
