“Made with love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Food is great! The owner loves what she does. We had buffet and there were more choices than one could make for a week. It is a small place and if you have to wait it's worth it.

“Good Joint !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

Good breakfast-buffet.
Service was slow, it seemed like it was being run by a high-chool class.
Prices were reasonable.
Have eaten there before, didn't have the same vibe this time.
Will try another place next time.............

“Wonderful breakfast cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

The host is wonderful - she is an English woman who really knows how to run a cafe. Great food and service right on the main street of Grand Lake.

“Slow, busy, and fairly good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We ate here twice while in town. They hire high school kids as waitstaff and it shows. The service while pleasant is very slow and not organized. The place is crowded and has a sardine, goldfish in a bowl feel. The food is pretty good although the wait was long both times. French toast, omelets, and cinnamon rolls were big hits. The Mexican entrees not so much,

“Best weekend breakfast buffet in the region.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

My favorite breakfast stop in Grand Lake. Hearty and sweet. Not your average breakfast buffet. Bring your appetite.
