“Best Breakfast in Town”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We ate here about 3 times over a week's time. The selection is fantastic and the prices are even better. The portions are large, so you won't have to eat for awhile. I will be going back. It is more like a hometown place instead of a busy tourist attraction.

“Great Breakfast!”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

The best breakfast in Durango! The scrambled eggs, home-style potatoes, eggs Benedict, & huge cinnamon roll(size of a saucer) were very good. They have home-made jam. Service was quick! Definitely a must if you want a good breakfast. Lots of variety also.

“We eat here every single time we visit Durango.”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

The College Drive Cafe is one of our favorite breakfast places in Durango. It is a small place, the parking is very limited, there is almost always a wait, and the service isn't perfect. That said, we enjoy it tremendously and have never left disappointed! It is a great local breakfast place, and the food is delicious. They have a wonderful menu, and it is warm and cozy. I wouldn't visit Durango, without visiting the College Drive Cafe. It has become a family tradition.

“Best breakfast and lunch”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Made sure I got back here to eat. Eight years later Still the best place I have ever eaten . I think they have a secret farm and Garden out back. Formerly was called the Meeting place. They have self sign in sheet at front door , the short wait will not be regretted

“A small local's favorite”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This small, out of the way, cozy cafe is one of our favorite spots to have breakfast. There are only 8 or 10 tables, each with a different map of the surrounding National Forest trail system, displayed under a glass top. This charming cafe is run by a local couple. While the husband prepares amazing food in the kitchen, the wife greets guests with a warm smile and hot coffee. The experience is quiet, warm, friendly, and comfortable, all for a very reasonable price.

Many vegetarian choices!
