We stopped in for a quick lunch and tea and ordered the green chili omelet with cheese. It was so good that we came back the next day for breakfast and ordered it again and the coffee is really good too. Great service with happy people, I think this is a hidden gem!

Great waitress! Kept our coffee full and really made you feel welcome. Food was also very good. This place always seems clean and act like they really want your business.

A wide selection of usual breakfast fare - served all day - as well as a lunch menu. Food came fast and was delicious albeit a tad pricy for breakfast but par for the course for Steamboat Springs. Good service as well.

Friendly, efficient waitstaff. A bit on the pricy side for lunch for this rural Wisconsin woman, but they will actually cook your Teriyaki cheeseburger rare! Recommended.

We had lunch at The Shack. They had a good selection of items either for breakfast or lunch. A good kids menu too. I ordered a summer salad with lots of blueberries and strawberries with greens. It was the perfect size and very fresh. Other's enjoyed their hamburgers. The whole staff was very friendly and checked on us often. This... More

We were looking forr a late breakfast. The first place had an hour wait, the second, The Shack, had a line too, but we decided to wait. It took awhile, but the friendly staff worked its way through the crowd pretty efficiently. I ended up having a burger, one of us a salad, the other an omelet. We all liked... More

I had eaten here previously when I visited Steamboat. Homey atmosphere; we had breakfast. I will come back here. My companion though did not like his food.

Came here twice on our visit, once at lunch and once for breakfast, both times the food was great, it's not fast but has good quality. The chicken fried steak is one of the best I've had anywhere. So if you have time, stop in and get breakfast, you won't regret it. Prices are average $13 for the CFS.

It was a lovely sunny morning, so we sat at one of the outdoor tables out front. Great food all around, quick and cheerful service, decent coffee. Great in-town choice for breakfast.
