I love this cozy little brunch spot! The clear views of the surrounding mountains and wonderful smells of fresh baked goodies fill the air and create the perfect environment! I highly recommend the heuvos rancheros.. It is incredible, and also large enough to share if your appetite is not overly large. The prices are on par with any popular trendy... More

Enjoy the variety of egg dishes made with great ingredients. We both enjoyed the amigo eggs made with poached eggs on English muffins topped with salsa and melted cheddar and then guacamole on top. Exceptional. Good coffee as well.

Cute little restaurant that had great breakfast! We found it through tripadvisor and we were happy we came. Regular priced breakfast, great selection of coffee and staff that were very helpful in giving us information on different activities in the surrounding area. Definitely recommend coming here!

When you combine great food, great service and a great view you have a successful restaurant that is never slow! So expect a crowd and consider that when going. Dinosaurs are the table markers 😁 top it off with great lattes and amazing baked goods. This is he way to start every day!

this is clearly a HUGE favourite with the locals. it is "out of the way" - as in not the middle of town; but not far away. The place has a bouncy, happy & filled with locals feel. Good coffee & friendly service.

We decided to hit up this place for Sunday brunch and it was perfect. What a selection for drinks and food! Very cozy inside - be prepared to share a table or potentially having to eat outside or take your meal to go. It was super busy but the wait wasn't too bad. The quality and quantity is totally worth... More

What a great little place for breakfast! This cafe style restaurant has a large personality for sure. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was fabulous. The prices were very reasonable as well. Will definitely go back.
