This restaurant is a fun place to visit. There are many mounted animals all around the restaurant. There are antiques and many other things to look at. We shared their "Prime Rib for Two" and it was great. It was more than both of us could eat and the food quality was very good. Our waitress was very good and kept the iced tea filled and brought us anything else we needed. The price was very reasonable and we totally enjoyed the meal.

I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to someone. It's not fancy but it's full of home cooking and charm.

We took an later afternoon bike ride on the Poudre Trail and stopped at Verns. Not wanting a meal, we had big glasses of iced tea and split an order of chili cheese fries. The fries were hand cut and covered with Vern's chili (yeah!!! pinto beans and not kidney beans) and mounds of melty cheddar cheese. Perfect!

The cinnamon rolls are amazing- ask for extra frosting. Weekends have become a nightmare- it's almost impossible to get a seat, so go wicked early or on a weekday.
The waitstaff over the past few years has gotten a little rough. They used to be a lot friendlier and helpful, now it feels like I am annoying a bunch of hung-over high school kids just to get a coffee refill. Other than that little nuisance though- the food is great, the cafe itself is quirky, and the cinnamon rolls are amazing.

Cinnamon rolls and that cabbage stuffed thing! The food's good enough to eat! Great locals, community hang-out. We all love Vern's.

I've been coming here since I was a kid. Great down-home restaurant. Must have a cinnamon roll!
