Knowing we would be passing through Gunnison, of course we check TA for breakfast suggestions and "discovered" this great restaurant. It would have been easy to miss otherwise, as it has a terrific, but weathered, old sign and not much of a street presence.

This warm and cozy diner serves an awesome breakfast! The portions are huge. I had the corned beef hash. Fantastic. My teen age son couldn't finish all of his food. The staff is friendly and does a great job.

I've been here for years. I had not eaten here in quite a while. Portions are a lot smaller than I remember but still just enough. Good service. I also enjoyed their special that morning which was banana bread French toast. It was actually really amazing. All the staff pulled together to make sure we enjoyed our visit.

We spent a couple of days in Gunnison recently, and had breakfast at the W cafe both days. Service was very good, prompt at everything! We had omelettes, pork chops, french toast. And our coffee cups never got below half full:).

The W Skillet was awesome. My wife's western omelette was equally as good. Biscuits were excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. A great local diner.
