We made numerous meal stops while in Ruidoso but this was the best. Warm, friendly, and outstanding Migas and huevo rancheros. SINamon rolls were some of the best I’ve had. Caution: cash only

Without a doubt everyone in our party loved it. Walked in with a wood burning fire going. Little hard to but so worth the trip. Cinnamon rolls like non you’ve eaten before plus nice court yard to walk in. Friendly folks.

Quaint little cafe for breakfast. Very large servings and reasonably priced. Kind of tight quarters. Breakfast tacos were delicious. The green chili sauce is very good.

Love the location and patio seating, open atmosphere under umbrellas. Service friendly and helpful, food very tasty. Pet friendly on patio. We have breakfast here every time in Ruidoso and expect to continue. Free parking available but can be limited.
