It's small, super busy, and it's no wonder why. I had the ground chorizo (among other things), and it was superb. There was good coffee (self serve while you, inevitably, wait), friendly service -- if you've been to Portland, this felt like a Portland breakfast place.

This is our favorite breakfast in Durango. The French Toast Breakfast—get the homemade sausage—is delicious and filling. We're local, but when tourists find out about this place, the line is going to be even longer.

We're relative newbies to Durango, and stopped in during our first weekend after moving into our Durango home. In a word...delicious! I had the pancakes, which were quite literally the size of my plate (see the picture attached to this review). They were soft and buttery and perfect. My fiancée had an omelette which was also flavorful and loaded with... More

This was recommended by our motel and the breakfast was really really good. A little bit more expensive, but it is very nice furnitured and off the beaten path, so you have the feeling to really eat where the locals do. Service was extremely nice and friendly.

Friendly staff and a clean are always a good start and the food itself was great tasting and the coffee was plentiful. There were four of us, including 2 vegetarians, and nobody has difficulty finding something they liked. We had a mix of pancakes and french toast with some side orders and the bill was very reasonable.
