Great hometown family diner. Food was awesome, and so was the service. From the owner to the waitress, these folks really made us feel at home and showed their appreciation for our business. Looking forward to dining here again the next time we visit Mesa Verde NP!

Next to our lodge, a very friendly owner (who speaks some Frewnch!) and just the kind of breakfast we like, good eggs/sausage/hash browns. We enjoyed it!

Good coffee, nice people. Good food and you can ask them to do it a certain way. Cold weather and snowing but they had all parking cleared by 7am.
