“Great breakfast, great value”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stopped here at 10:30 on a Sunday morning on our way through town and we expected it to be packed...it was! It is seat yourself so we got a (soon to be cleared) open table outside. The staff was very friendly the entire time even though they were very busy. We both had the egg sandwich with bacon and it came with potatoes that were excellent. It was a good value and a great breakfast. If you are in the area, stop by!

“Quality by the Highway”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you read my reviews on restaurants you will realize that ambiance is as important as the food. I like the outdoor ambiance here. There is lots to watch as you sit on the patio, and if you are in the right seat you can hear all of the kitchen banter with ease. But it is the breakfast options that inspired me to write this review. Everything on the House Favorites list for breakfast is enticing. I had the eggs winfield and was simply delighted. I also like that the cafe promises not to poison me with corporate factory food as they are able and the locally roasted coffee is legit! If you are boating the famous Arkansas River, on a road trip, or like me, hating on the drive between Durango and Denver, there is a tasty treat in your future in BV. Enjoy!

“Fresh, Affordable Food”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

The Evergreen Cafe is located right in downtown Buena Vista. They offer diner style seating as well as indoor seating and a nice patio for outdoor seating. We sat on the patio for lunch as the weather was perfect (like most summer days in Buena Vista). The staff was friendly and attentive and let us choose our own seat. We initially sat indoors in a small sun rooms, but moved outside when a table became available.

The menu was simple with a number of tasty looking options. I decided to go with the burrito because the menu called it out as something "for a heartier appetite" (or something to that end). The food took a little while to get, but came out hot and fresh. It didn't seem like a burrito thrown together in a diner, but rather a fresh masterpiece. It wasn't as large as I'm used to (hey, I'm an American who's used to Chipotle-sized burritos as a snack), but it was a good size for a lunch. I was full, but not stuffed, so really, it was perfectly sized! From the tortilla to the green chile it was smothered in, it all seemed fresh and homemade, not another mass-produced burrito.

The staff was in no rush to get us to leave and we were able to linger and enjoy the conversation and people-watching in downtown Buena Vista.
