We have been here several times before, and continue to come back! They always are crowded, but don't worry, we have never had to wait more than 10 minutes or so to be seated. And they're crowded for a good reason....their food and service are awesome! On our last visit, our server as Alex, and I wanted to give him a big shout-out!! He also spends time as a chef, and his goal is to be a restaurateur someday....based on his work ethic and personable nature his dream will definitely come true someday! I normally get the Ever Popular Joe...always a great choice, by the way...but Alex recommended the Eggs Benedict with Green Chile....wow! It was a great recommendation! Looking for a great breakfast in the South Metro Area, this place is your choice!

A lot of food for the price. Some of the dishes are pretty much what you would make up at home. Others are a huge plate of scrumptious goodies with a side of pancakes. Plenty to fill your appetite and take a little home too.
Service was standard since the place was very busy. Food was fast and hot.

I had been past the eatery a number of times while looking at the stores in the shopping center where it is located, but had always been there later in the day when they were closed. On my last visit to Denver I finally decided to drive there for breakfast on Sunday. Upon arrival I discovered that there was a wait of about 20 minutes to get a table. This was the first indication that this was a popular place and that the food must be great. My parents and I were sited on their covered patio. I ordered the apple waffle and was very tasty. It was loaded with pieces of apple and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. The dusting of cinnamon sugar, almost made the small amount of syrup unnecessary. I like this waffle, so much that I going to try and recreate this for breakfast in the morning. In addition I also ordered a side of scrambled eggs and cooked perfectly. Not only was the food good, but service by Jerry was also great. In conclusion, while not really by any of the hotels I stay in Denver it is well worth the drive for a great breakfast.
