The cafe is nice, but they do not offer espresso so the coffee is a the bland filter. I had taco's which were OK and my wife had pancakes which she said were nice.

This is such a quaint place for a comfortable get-together with friends. I meet friends here for breakfast almost every week. Friendly service, the standard breakfast fare. Decorations and mugs change with the seasons and holidays. Beautiful cakes & cupcakes (have never tried them). Conversation...More

Better than the pancake house, but just as hard to get into--the place is tiny. Excellent pancakes and specials. Cozy. The hot chocolate comes in fun mugs with whipped cream and sprinkles. It's also--thankfully--not made from a pouch. The coffee is decent.

Small (often quite crowded), and homey, good service, and excellent "standard" breakfast food. For my money, the best Denver Omelette anywhere. On the expensive side for breakfast, but the quality of the ingredients and preparation are top-notch.

I ordered the buttermilk pancakes because of the rave reviews and they were quite good. However, they didn't have maple syrup, just the the ultra-sweet imitation stuff, which ruined the taste for me. I had them pack up the pancakes to bring home to eat...More

Fabulous breakfast, wonderful hospitality. You will not get a better breakfast. Home Alone house is a 5 minute walk. Too bad I can't bring this cafe back with me to Ireland. Keep up the great work. Philip.
