A local diner serving good food. The place to go for local breakfasts on the weekend or any other time you can enjoy breakfast at a diner.

The breakfast burrito is amazing, and anything with green chili. It is all flavor and not much heat!

If visiting Laramie, you have to eat breakfast here. Great homestyle cooking. There are so many local choices in this town, but this was our favorite for breakfast. The service is great. We will be back.

Have had both breakfast and lunch here. Excellent. Love the small town, very casual atmosphere. Everyone working there the nicest people in Laramie. Looks as if it’s been around a very long time. Will return here again and again.

J's Prairie Rose is a Laramie staple for weekend breakfast (especially for game day visitors) or week day (for us locals). French toast is amazing as is the Prairie Rose breakfast plate.

We were told by locals that this was THE place to have breakfast in Laramie. The food was fantastic and the staff was friendly and welcoming even though they were extremely busy with the day after a UW football game crowd.

This is a true locals breakfast cafe. It was packed when we were there mid-week and the folks were all enjoying each others company and food. We were seated after waiting for an open table and the food was very good. We will be back.

We didn't see them on the menu, and I think it's doubtful they offer them. It's more of a traditional breakfast café.
