Great breakfast. Sit outside watching the road - where you get one car drive by an hour. Just like being in the movie Paris, Texas.

Only one open at 6:30 besides the gas station. Decent cup of coffee should have waited for fort stockton.

Hot breakfast spot when staying at the Gage Hotel. Good breakfast skillets as well as healthy options. Nice coffee options. A bit short staffed, so the cashier had to be reminded of several coffee orders as she doubles as the barista!

Solid coffee house that sells wine too. Limited menu but good coffee. It is right next door to a cool little store where you can shop while you wait for your coffee

Stopping in after a camping/working weekend in the park, four of us had a filling lunch for ~$40. A friend on the trip had visited previously and suggested we stop. We sat outside on a dusty summer day and had a quickly prepared lunch of hot sandwiches, wraps, and a Cobb salad with very fresh vegetables (recommended). The worn exterior... More

For what it is, this is a cool little place. The service was very personal and the food hot and prepared as you would want. Nothing special in any way but handy place to stop for a bite.
