We stopped in on our last morning in Moab. There was a little wait, but not too long. The building is charming, and there are unique food choices. The Dutch pancakes were disappointing because I expected something else. Otherwise the food was good. It came very quickly.

Our party of 5 was seated immediately early in the morning. Our server was friendly and attentive. All our food choices were delicious: Ginger pancakes with apple butter, Belgian pancake with lingonberry sauce, Southwest eggs Benedict, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, and strong coffee. We were all fed for our adventure at Arches. Prices were very reasonable also.

We ate here twice - both for breakfast. I can't say that my meal challenged the cooks - after all - 2 pieces of toast, country-fried potatoes and 2 eggs sunny-side up isn't the stuff of 5 star chefs. But - the toast was yummy, I adored the potatoes - bit spicy - but so good - and my eggs... More

We got breakfast to go because we were hot and sweaty from hiking to Delicate Arch at sunrise. Hostess was slightly rude at first, not sure if take out is a hassle possibly, but she got nicer as time went on. Food was ready pretty quick. I got a waffle, which was covered in some type of nut, which I... More

After taking our order, we had our food in under five minutes. Everything was hot and fresh for breakfast. Orange Juice was fresh squeezed, the whole wheat waffles are made from scratch and were delicious so... More

We had 9 for breakfast, which was difficult to accommodate due to the size of the place, but we were close to one another. The menu selections were very good and had some interesting selections along with the usual menu. The bacon is delicious as are the omelets. They are folded omelets rather than everything all mixed together which is... More
