It was raining when we awoke at the Morefield campground in Mesa Verde. Went into Cortez for breakfast. Pippo's hit the spot. Mostly full, good service, large to senior serving breakfasts from french toast to breakfast burritos. All good.

This was my kind of place. We were passing by and I had a hunch this would be a great little place. I really liked Pippo's nostalgic feel of dinners that seems to be fast disappearing from the American landscape.Nothing fancy. Clean, friendly and tasty food. What more could you ask for and all at a reasonable price. Long live... More

Ah, at last a menu where I could order just one pancake, instead of the stack one usually has to fight a way through.. It's was done to perfection, so was the omelet my husband ordered.. The waitresses were quick and smiling.. I'd definitely like to come back here, next time we're coming through Cortez

Great food, service was a bit slow. Will go back next time we go through Cortez. They have 1/2 size breakfast items, which was perfect for me!

Decided to stop when leaving Cortez and glad we did. This place could qualify for Diners Drive Inns and Dives. Home cooking at its finest. We loved our breakfast and enjoyed the small town feeling.

Planned to go to a different joint down the street but discovered that other one was cash only so Pippos was the place to go. It was great! Best diner food around and so cheap. Great service too (and they take credit cards)!

Stopped in for breakfast, lots of locals come here. We ordered huevos rancheros and chile omelet. Both were around $7.85 and came with hash brown potatoes and your choice of bread or pancakes. They have a senior (62 and older) menu which is a bargain. Food came promptly and was delicious. The red and green chile sauces were tasty. You... More

Small diner on Main St. The food was good and my order came out quickly. It is very strange walking thru the kitchen area to get to the rest room.

We tried this place last year and came back when traveling thought town again. Fun place, lots of nice locals. Food is very good at very reasonable prices. I had the Colorado Chili (or is it chilli?) omelette which was quite good. My wife had Veggie omelette. Burned up the potatoes as requested and I got two little and delicious... More

We split an omelette and had a great breakfast. Restroom was kinda funky through the kitchen, but SPOTLESS.
