“Go every chance we get”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We love to eat here as much as we can. Breakfast or lunch are always great and the staff is very friendly. Sometimes we have to wait quite a while but it's always worth it. We sometimes choose to eat at the counter or "community table" where we have met quite a few very interesting people. Linda, the owner always has different specials as well as the standard menu available. The food always tastes so fresh and is presented very nicely. A lot of times I take 1/2 my meal home, depending on what I order. The desserts are always wonderful and home made.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

You better be hungry if you go here for breakfast.
They have a great selection and it arrives in a abundant fashion, so put on your food bib.
The only downside is that they are not open on Sunday, which is the best day for me.

“we're regulars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Well, we are prejudiced- we live half a block from the Spur and we are "regulars." So we have tried lots of items, and we also know how to beat the long lines (go before 9am or after 1pm). It can be noisy and crowded at times but worth it. The food is all fresh, home made and great. NOT a chain! The owner is there most all the time and the crew has had very little turnover over the years. The atmosphere is cheerful and the service is great; if you can't catch your own waitperson's eye, any other one will gladly help you. We have also discovered you can split, share, use the kids/senior menu or substitute things, all without extra charge (maybe a little for splitting, not sure). Very flexible menu and plenty of vegetarian choices. On the rare occasion (2-3 times in 10 years of going at least twice a week) we had any problem with the food it was fixed IMMEDIATELY, with sincere concern. Love the Spur!

“Great Breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Silver Spur is a great place for a huge breakfast. The portions are very large. The pancakes are good and big. Several choices of egg dishes. It's always crowded, so expect to wait at peak times. Everything is home made.

“Best diner style breakfast spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

You know it's good here when you see the same folks again and again. Great breakfast menu, with some of the best french toast around!
