Last night I called them to find out when they stopped serving breakfast today. They told me 11:00. This morning my friend and I rushed to get there by 10:30, which we did. After we sat down we were told the chef had decided to cut off breakfast early, even though the place was packed. I explained to the waitress... More

We ate at Dave's several times during our stay in Cloudcroft, and always felt like we were treated as friends instead of just customers. Very friendly, informal staff who took pains to ensure we had all we needed or wanted. Food was always good and prepared just as ordered, and the best coffee we found in Cloudcroft.

If you are in a hurry go elsewhere. This is the type of place you want to savor. The wait staff is pleasant and friendly. I had the huevos rancheros with a cup of coffee. Bring your appetite because they give you a lot of food and it's delicious. The food and the service are excellent.

Daves is a small diner style cafe right in the heart of all the shopping in Cloudcroft, and the food is good, the staff friendly, and the location perfect. Prices are not high, and the owner honestly seems to care about the experience you have and the quality of food you eat. (He cooks it!)

Stopped in for an early dinner. Greeted and seated promptly. Got the fried asparagus appetizer, and it was very good and fresh. Waitress kept our drinks full. I had the BLT with peanut butter on it (yes, PB) and it was surprisingly very good! Wife had a salad that was large and fresh. Nothing to complain about here!

Had a nice breakfast here as we left Cloudcroft, NM. It was a Monday morning and very quiet. Glad we stopped by. Would go again @ a time when there's not a crowd to try more.

My kids could eat here everyday if I let them. It's our families favorite stop. Service is amazing I love the staff just as much as I love the burgers. I am partial to good burgers living in Montana for most of my adult life I can tell you Dave's stacks up to one of the best. The fries are... More

My husband and I shares the southwest omelet with chilies and a pancake and were stuffed. The quality was excellent and so was the service. Everyone was very friendly. The only reason we don't give Dave's a 5 is that they didn't have decaf coffee and neither of us normally drinks caffeine. Needless to say we were bouncing off the... More

Stopped in for quick breakfast before a day of ATV riding. The quick part didn't work out so well. It was busy, and service a little slow, but very friendly. Food took a little while to come out, but everything was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. Breakfast are very reasonably priced, and portions satisfied my 16, 19, and 22... More

Dave's is in the heart of Cloudcroft's touristy downtown. Booths are along one wall, and tables along the other in a room maybe 20 feet wide by 50 feet long with a very high angled ceiling. Great selection of burgers to satisfy just about any taste, including, of course, those who want to experience NM green chilies. I can't remember... More
