Uncle Sam's is a patriotic "hole in the wall" type of eatery. What the red, white and blue themed ambience lacks is offset by the fantastically friendly waitstaff and the phenomenal pancakes and waffles! Great down to earth eatery with tasty breakfast food and very reasonable prices. Our waitress was attentive and genuinely friendly and we would definitely make it... More

What a wonderful way to start your day. This place has the friendliest staff, best service and food, and the price is right! Would recommend it to everyone. The fireplace truly made it so warm and inviting on a cool morning!

A fun place with friendly service and reasonable prices but we found the food lacking. The huevos was strong with a vinegar flavor, can only think that they used the wrong can of chilies. The Spanish omelet also lacked spices and had a bland picante sauce. Stick to the American dishes and you should be fine.

Great little quaint place not far from our hotel. Breakfast was delicious, staff super friendly, reasonably priced and served generous portions. Will definitely come back for a second visit during our stay in Manitou Springs, Colorado.

This place was so good we ended up walking down from our motel twice for breakfast in the four days we spent in Manitou Springs. Service was very friendly without coming across as fake. The food was delicious and prepared to order. I'm verrry picky about my scrambled eggs but they met my request perfectly. The prices are super reasonable.... More

Good; a little pricey; I would suggest sharing a breakfast if possible we wasted three pancakes! Service was very good.

My favorite places are little hole in the wall restaurants and this one did not disappoint. Large portions, cheap prices, and friendly service. You can't ask for much more!
