“Very nice sunday brunch”
Reviewed July 2, 2010

We ate at the Fat Cat and had a lovely Sunday brunch w/ amazing home cooked options like fruit pies, biscuits and gravy, egg dishes, fresh fruit, etc. This all you can eat option was just what we were looking for. it's a small place and pretty crowded but a super relaxed atmosphere seemed to make it all OK.

“Best food around.”
Reviewed June 23, 2010

We finally managed to make it to the Fat Cat after 3 failed attempts on our part, but boy was it worth it. The food was excellent in generous proportions with botomless drinks, suffice to say we will be back for more.

“Great way to start a day”
Reviewed June 21, 2010

My hubby and I stopped here on our way out of town enroute to the airport. We encountered great food and service. I had eggs and bacon with real homefries - None of this deep fried frozen potatoes - these were real and yummy along with two generous slices of wheat bread. Also I am a tea drinker and they give you a good size pot of tea and don't mind giving a cup to go for what you have left.

Hubby had one of their bagel breakfast sandwiches with sausage - he said it was very good. I tasted the sausage and it had great flavor to it.

If we ever travel back to the Grand Lake area I would definately go here for breakfast. Would love to try their brunch buffet.

“Best scones on this side of the pond!”
Reviewed June 16, 2010

Sally, the owner, is a tiny little woman who knows how to cook. Everything is made from scratch, and while the buffet presentation isn't five stars, the food is six. (And that is on a scale of 1 to 5!) The scones were the best I can recall having, and her desserts are heavenly. The saltier fare, which my husband preferred, was just as good, with Scotch eggs, crispy bacon, and a vareity of quiches. We live in Denver, a couple hours away, but will probably return to Grand Lake for a day trip, starting out with a stop at Fat Cat.
