Oscar's was recommended by our motel and we were so happy about this really delicious breakfast! Nice atmosphere and great service, too. It is located in a mall and there is plenty of parking space and a "Natural Grocers" right across the street. Would love to come back any time.

Located in a strip mall plaza so the space is small. They have two tables outside but the weather has to be permitting to sit out there. Inside is decorated with old memorabilia and an overhead train track that is interesting to watch go around and around. We ate there for breakfast and the food was good along with nice... More

Judging by how busy this place was I would say its a favorite of locals. We were recommended this place by our hotel front desk. We did have to wait for a table, but the food was well worth the wait! Highly recommend stopping here for breakfast!

I did a search for restaurants in Durango, saw this and thought we'd try it. OMG! Was that the best breakfast ever! I had the Durango Scramble - It was delicious! My husband had biscuits, gravy and hasbrowns, with side of bacon and he loved his breakfast too! The girls that waited on us were adorable! Great place to eat!

Oscar's Cafe opened early for breakfast. I felt full having a simple breakfast there, food was delicious and the servers were courteous. I would recommend having meals there if you are nearby Durango. It is not at Downtown Durango but near grocery shopping and there were ample parking space.

Found this place on trip advisor and we are so glad we did! We had an excellent breakfast before we rode the train and the service can not be beat.

The first thing to know about Oscars is that it is not a "restaurant/bar" like so many places in Durango. It is an old fashioned diner. And its location is not historical or scenic. Instead it is located in a 1960s strip shopping center located just a bit west of Main Street. But the food is very good diner food.... More

This is a very quirky, cute diner! Crowded but got in and ordered and served quickly. Had a Durango scramble very good. Plus we had biscuits, gravy and eggs good also. They serve a lot of food so come hungry!

My wife and I visited here on 9/16/16 for lunch. We return here (normally for breakfast) every time we come to Durango. Great local hang out. Lots of food choices but so popular you might have to seat at the counter. I'm handicapped (cane and walker) but noted not ADA restrooms.

The venue is a little smaller than I expected but the food was great. Large portions and the chili was great. We enjoyed watching the train go around but if they're busy I would recommend sitting out front. We'll definitely stop in again!

Thank TCAPlatero10
