Great place for breakfast while in Durango !! Old fashioned diner that's quick, tasty and priced right. Lots of regular breakfast items and great homemade hot sauce. It's a bit small and noisy but that adds to the character.

We went to Oscar's Cafe for breakfast and they did not disappoint. We were greeted cheerfully and advised of the wait time. We were seated promptly and served the best breakfast anyone could want.

So sorry your experience at Oscar's was not what you expected; like going to Del Frisco's, Morton's, and other top end places, sometimes things just don't mesh. Could have caught them on a bad day (although they were busy... More
