“Plain & simple all around”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2011

Plain and simple place in shopping center storefront on highway a couple miles west of downtown. (Next to P. Springs Inn.) Dinner menu seemed to be sandwiches from lunch menu with sides, including real mashed potatoes. Waitress on duty was gifted hostess. She pleased the locals who were there for supper with french fries. My grilled chicken sandwich & mashed came promptly. Sandwich very ordinary but filling. Windowed walls on two sides allow view of pavement and highway, etc.

“BEST LITTLE CAFE IN PAGOSA!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2011

I'm a local who has sampled every place to eat in this town. The portions here are big, the red chili is my favorite and tastes like the great red chili from New Mexico. Those of you who know NM chili know what I mean! The wait staff is extremely friendly and service is fast. The cafe is clean and homey and usually packed, especially for lunch. The cafe will start serving dinner in May. I eat here almost every day. I take my out of town guests here and never heard one complaint. Some folks have reviewed that they weren't satisfied with different things. They can always ask for more cheese or lettuce and if something isn't cooked to your liking, send it back and tell them how you want it. They aim to please.

“Mediocrity must be their goal, they achieved it.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2010

The food here isn't bad nor is it really good.
Very plain and average, would not really recommend it nor would I return for a 2nd visit.
There are much better choices in Pagosa Springs within a 5 minute drive.
My bean and beef burrito entree consisted of a store bought flour tortilla, wrapped inside were what tasted like straight from the can pinto beans with ground beef and very little seasoning. Like something I could whip up at home if I was in a hurry.
On top was a scant dusting of cheese with some lettuce shards. The green chili which was supposed to be "smothered" was barely noticeable with the exception that it was very salty.

“If you want home-cooking, this is the place...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

We went for breakfast two different days. Absolutely mouth watering!!! This was the only place we found that served green chili. The owner is personable and gets right out there and works with the rest of the staff. The food is delicious and affordable. The restaurant is clean and the atmosphere is homey. You feel welcome the minute you walk in the door. I would definately recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors. Go and eat, YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED!

“Just an Average Local Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2010

We went twice. The first time the food was Ok but nothing special, biscuits and gravy, eggs, and "meat", the meat was not separate but crumbled into the very floury tasting gravy. My wife ordered eggs, scrambled hard and sausage patties. The eggs weren't really to her liking, not cooked well enough, but the sausage patties were quite good. The next time, as someone's invited guests, she had an English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich that was very much to her liking. My waffle...well I've never really eaten cardboard but this was what I imagine cardboard to taste like. Overall I'd say go elsewhere.
