Where the locals eat.

Just had lunch at Oscar's today. Very tasty food and good service. Lots of local atmosphere and dependable menu. Always fun to watch the train circle above your head.

We all really enjoyed this place. There was 6 of us and it's a little bit smaller of a place but they still fit us in. The food was amazing, the staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was wonderful.

If there is a wait, WAIT its worth it. From a great cup of coffee to the best french toast anyone in my family has ever eaten Oscar's Cafe is a must. I will be back when back in town!

Nice little place, fun atmosphere and clean. My son loved his chocolate shake and my omelet was really good. Excellent service. Worth a try!

It's hard to stand out in the breakfast category, but this place is great! Service was fast and friendly. We got The Peak (famous hash browns, cheese and diced ham fried together with eggs on top) and biscuits and gravy which also came out with hash browns and eggs all stacked and covered in the gravy. The gravy is legit,... More

While visiting Durango, we were looking for a casual place to have breakfast. We saw Oscar's had a good rating on Yelp so we thought we'd give it a try. It is a small restaurant and there was a short wait for a seat because it was packed. When our food came, we certainly understood why. It was probably the... More

We were on a camping trip when we were surprised by a late season snow. I have been snowed on in July, so no big deal. We just did not feel like dealing with it. Packed up and drove to town. No idea where to go, so we asked. This guy we just stopped on the sidewall told us Oscar's.... More

Ate lunch here while in the area. This is a little café and more like a locals place. Place is decorated like a diner. The staff was very friendly. I had a cheeseburger and it was delicious. They also have a large assortment of pies for dessert. I would eat here again.

Great going here alone and reminds me of the east coast diners I frequented 50 years ago. Most menu items are pretty good and with their own twist. Most of my visits are for breakfast and they make a pretty good pancake. Wish they had some good home fries instead of those shredded hash browns that are drenched in oil.
