First time in Fort Collins and first place we decided to stop. We were not disappointed! Family of 7 and we all found something that we loved. Food was great, staff was great. Highly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed!

Delicious! Best hash browns around (very picky about my hash browns lol) and biscuits & gravy are tremendously perfect! Light biscuits, not heavy and doughy. They fill you up without over doing it, flavor is exactly how it should be! Found my new breakfast spot!...More

Great, quiet atmosphere, family friendly, smiling faces, and the best biscuits and gravy I've ever had. Felt like a small town diner. Excellent. Definite contender for the 'Best of Fort Collins' award.

I eat at Mt. Cafe often. I have never had a bad meal. This is cooking like Mom use to do in my opinion. The owner is as friendly as the staff. The daily breakfast and lunch specials are very very good and reasonably priced....More

Nice folks serving tasty fresh food, a bustling quick in and quick food on the table. After we ate, the folks down the street at other breakfast places were waiting for a table to pay twice what we did for the same or not as...More

A family owned and operated establishment that has been around for over 25 years, yet has maintained it's authentic, cozy, and homely feel. It's a small, diner-like cafe with an old fashioned style to it. The food is prepared and cooked by the owner, Moe Kamandy. Although hidden, there's a patio away from all the street noise where Moe plants his colorful flowers, making for a great place to relax and enjoy breakfast and a cup of coffee on a summer morning.
