“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I make it up to Ruidoso about twice a year and we love to eat lunch here. If you like spicy soup you have to try the green chili and potato. Always great service. Got to meet Christine and Linda and I had to get a cinnamon roll before I left.

“Wonderful food- and Steve is da bomb”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

My son and I made a point of eating here on our tour of New Mexico based on the salivating reviews and they were all true! The food, the coffee, the baked goods- all excellent - loved the huevos rancheros- spicy! All his wait staff were great, however, Steve was the nicest friendliest restaurant owner I have ever met- way to go!

“Awesome meal that will please everyone”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We had breakfast here 2 days in a row. Their menu has a large selection of breakfast and lunch options. On both days the restaurant was packed which was definitely an indication of how good the food is. The owner walks around the restaurant checking on guest, cleaning off tables and serving coffee. Speaking of coffee, you must try their piñon roast coffee. It is delish!! Their omelets, breakfast burritos, crepes and red/green salsa were right on the mark. We will always visit this cafe when we are in town!

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Had breakfast there on our way from the Inn of the Mountain Gods Apache Casino and Resort.
It was delicious, wait staff was very attentive, piñon coffee excellent. They obviously cater to a lot of the local folks as they were greeted personally, but they were just as attentive to folks dropping by for the first time. We wished we could have stayed to sample all the pastries!
