We visited as a family while visiting for a ski trip. This place was recommended to us by a local. The pizza took a long time but the kids enjoyed playing pool while we waited. The staff was nice but not overly friendly. While waiting for our food, we discovered the restaraunt "cat"-laying on the bar top-right by dining customers.... More

Definitely full of local color. Fun place to hang out and meet people. You definitely get a different feel for Durango/Purgatory. Yep, pizza can take awhile . . . have another drink. Relax.

Let me start by saying don't come here expecting frills and fine dining. Come here if you want bomb, locals style pizza. This small "locals only" style restaurant is exactly what I like to find in the Rocky Mountains. I took it to go and ordered ahead, which I recommend for anyone that doesn't wait on-site for an hour. Sure... More

This small local pizza place was recommended by our guide. We called in advance on a Tuesday for take out. The wait time was an hour, so I am glad we called. We ordered a large sausage/onion pizza and a side salad. The pizza had a nice fresh thick crust and the salad was fresh. The pizza had plenty of... More

This a dive bar and I mean dive! But it's certainly worth a trip. Its tiny with only a few tables, but the drinks are cheap. Be glad about that b/c it takes a very long time to get your pizza. We got there on a Saturday evening at 5:15 (they open at 4p) and got a table. There were... More

The pizza was hot and cheesy. The breadsticks were also good. The place was not that clean or nice but good food made up for it.

Stopped in with my Fiancé and daughters after utv-ing at Purgatory-guy at the rental place told us about it. Bartendar was great--and told us up front it would be about an hour to get food. Calzone was worth the wait-HUGE-easily feeds 3 adults-and great tasting. Dive bar atmosphere (which I love). Will be back !!!

Had dinner at the Café recently and the pizza didn't disappoint. The wait was disappointingly long but that only gave us more of an opportunity to have a few beers and a round of salads. Order ahead if you are in a rush, usually is at least 1 hr+ for a pizza. But in the end it is all worth... More

After skiing Purgatory, was told by a local to swing by this place for Apres Ski. Mostly locals, but the cramped parking lot tells it all. Good draft beer selection and barkeep was fast, fast, fast !!!
