“Pancakes before the slopes- you could skip lunch!”
Reviewed June 26, 2011

Every year we ski Monarch and every year we have a few breakfasts here. Its a great 'locals' place- you dont get as many of the the out of towners with kids screaming for mcdonalds. If you come grungy after a camping trip (which we have done too) or if you come in boots and a cowboy hat or if you come in snowboard pants... doesn't matter, but you become a local yourself. Its packed but service is efficient (think diners with waitresses that ask if 'You want more coffee, hun?" but doesnt feel rushed.
Nothing fancy but consistently good, filling food.!

“Green Chile Sauce is addictive!”
Reviewed March 20, 2011

Best breakfast in town. We stopped in on our last morning of spring break. Got there before the morning rush; yeah! Huge pankcakes! Omlettes are excellent. Order the Green Chile sauce. It's unreal. Menu has something for everyone. Food and Service are excellent. Atomosphere.....doesn't matter. The food is the star, here.

“Very popular breakfast place. Good service, good food.”
Reviewed July 18, 2010

On a recent fishing trip my buddy and I decided to skip the hotel's continental breakfast and try the Patio Pancake Place, whose small sign we had seen the night before. We got there at 7:30am on a Saturday and were glad we were early. By 8 the place was full, and you could tell that most of the folks were locals. Be sure to get the pancakes, whether as your main course or an option to toast if you're having something else. Service was prompt and friendly. We came back the next day, got there just before 8 and managed to get a table right away even though the place was almost full. By the time we left, the line was out the door. Prices and portions are reasonable, and the food is good enough that you can fogive the fact that the coffee is a bit weak. The next time I am in Salida I will definitely go back.

“Where the locals eat”
Reviewed July 8, 2010

There's a reason that the parking lot is always full. Patio Pancake is a hangout for the locals, serving breakfast and lunch. Open from 6AM to 2PM. Great value, huge portions, for very little money. Good food, good service, and just good folks!
