Fairplay does not have a large selection of eaterys to choose from, so this place fits the bill with an old fashioned cafe atmosphere! Friendly staff and decent food.

Popped in for a late lunch during our Colorado vacation and enjoyed the wide variety of items on the menu...something for everyone! Check your schedule though, because they close down the kitchen around 3 p.m.!
