We had breakfast as we drove through Silverthorne, coming home to the Denver area after a weekend in Steamboat Springs. They seated us quickly, helped us with a couple of requests on the menu. Our orders were served quickly. The food was excellent. I had oatmeal and toast. My son had a Blue River Special -- scrambled eggs with peppers... More

Never had been here before but was rated well. My husband and I both got breakfast. I got the country breakfast, eggs, toast, turkey sausage and hash browns. My husband pancakes and bacon. It was great and I must say hash browns were excellent! I hate it when they are pale and soft but these were crispy and browned. Excellent!... More

Many good servers here, Kat is the best. Attentive yet not too over whelming at all. Very efficient and detail oriented. Weekends.. come early, even with additional seating from recent expansion, it's popularity is obvious from the possible wait times Saturdays and Sundays.. be patient.. it is worth it.

Have heard many of the locals (of which I am one now) refer to this place as the nicest place in town to eat breakfast. And, they're right, the wait staff was wonderful for breakfast and food was terrific as well as reasonably priced. Will surely go back!

We love this place. The new remodel is beautiful and has added more seating. Hopefully that cuts down on wait time. The trout and eggs is my go-to plate, but I've eaten almost everything in the menu and there is no wrong turn.

Off I-70. Highly rated. Good, filling food. Nice selection. Coffee really strong. Men's bathroom a little small. Very clean. We had country breakfast, sunshine shrimp and mushroom omelet and blue river scramble. Everyone liked their food. Serving very generous.

Traveling from Denver to Glenwoood Springs, we decided to stop at this cafe for lunch. It was better than we expected! We arrived during the lunch rush, but we were seated within about 15 minutes. The cafe is simple yet nice and the bathrooms were very clean. The service was superb and our waitress was extremely attentive. But the food... More

Whenever my friends come to visit me up in the mountains, I have to take them to this place. They have increased the size of the place recently which is nice because there is always a wait. Great food and service!

Found this cafe by accident while on vacation in the area. Sure am glad we found it. The staff was very friendly. Food was great I had the Philadelphia sandwich it was very good. My daughter LOVED the penne pasta. I think she could have eaten another plate. After we left and for the rest of the trip she talked... More

Family of 4. Chicken fried steak was a hit X2! Breakfast burrito was good and could feed 2, easily. Breakfast enchiladas didn't see what hit them. Service was swell!
