Top notch Americana-style food. Chefs are first rate. Brunch is incredible, and dinner selections are amazing. Reservations are required!!! Relaxed dining up LaBrecita Canyon, far from the madding crowd - a 20 minute drive from Alamogordo. Be sure to allow plenty of time, the emphasis is on the food and your dining company and friendly conversation. No credit cards, but... More

**cash only**. Nowhere did I see a sign that said this but inconveniently found out when the bill arrived . We wanted to go to a unique place out of town which this certainly met our needs with that. It's a beautiful drive to get to this location. This looks way more like a private home than anything. The signs... More

Wish I could keep this place a secret. That good. Call ahead or don't go. Bring cash and an appetite. Expect the unexpected. Food so good you will try to kiss the chef. It's not even a doublewide. Just a regular old single-wide. Food isn't just good. It is exceptional.

This place was amazing. I had the Eggs Benedict the eggs were cooked to perfection. Best Eggs Benedict I have eaten, The stuffed French toast was delicious. The restaurant is in the middle of nowhere in a converted mobile home, Make a reservation and bring cash or your checkbook and be ready for some delicious food.

Every time we come to visit, we go here for a big family breakfast. The food is cooked to order and is never disappointing. The French toast is a must. My youngest loves it and eats every bite of the large serving. The Bagel Push is also delicious but don't forget to add green chilies to it. You are in... More

Got a weird vibe the moment I walked in the door, cell had no service, food was meh.. Long drive out to nowhere for something we could've gotten down the road.. Over all was not impressed, also they don't take cards so keep that in mind..

Fantastic food. Nice ambiance. Expensive, but very high quality and well worth it. You must make a reservation.

This is the BEST place for a full combination of ambiance, food quality & flavor, staff friendliness. I've lived in this locale for four years, have eaten here three times during the past year, since I heard [emphasis "heard"] about this place. It is the ONLY eatery I have ever seen in my 78 years which has NO advertising whatsoever.... More

Belt-bursting portions of really fresh food, especially the breakfast offerings. The French toast is delicious! Nicely plated with fresh strawberries. Oh, yum!
