Breakfast here was included with our stay at High Plains Homestead. Wonderful pancakes, sausage, fried eggs, hash browns! And wonderful Coffee! Enjoyed the infamous Coffee Burger for lunch, and outside grilled steak and salmon dinners. Oh! And loved the talking time Mike did after breakfast.

Dinner at the Cookshack is worth the drive. Your choice of entrée with salad and beans. I got the ribs - yummy! Dessert is available and is equally as good
