This is an excellent restaurant to grab breakfast at in Durango. Affordable, great service, and delicious. I highly recommend the Texas omelet with green chile. Yum!

It's small, super busy, and it's no wonder why. I had the ground chorizo (among other things), and it was superb. There was good coffee (self serve while you, inevitably, wait), friendly service -- if you've been to Portland, this felt like a Portland breakfast place.

We're relative newbies to Durango, and stopped in during our first weekend after moving into our Durango home. In a word...delicious! I had the pancakes, which were quite literally the size of my plate (see the picture attached to this review). They were soft and buttery and perfect. My fiancée had an omelette which was also flavorful and loaded with... More
