We ate breakfast here on a Saturday morning and the place was full because locals know this is a great place to eat. All three of us had a different egg dish and we were all happy. My omelette was fluffy and great, the hash...More

This is a local place to be sure. The breakfast is always good. If you are in Cortez, it is worth the effort to look for.

It was raining when we awoke at the Morefield campground in Mesa Verde. Went into Cortez for breakfast. Pippo's hit the spot. Mostly full, good service, large to senior serving breakfasts from french toast to breakfast burritos. All good.

Great food, service was a bit slow. Will go back next time we go through Cortez. They have 1/2 size breakfast items, which was perfect for me!

Decided to stop when leaving Cortez and glad we did. This place could qualify for Diners Drive Inns and Dives. Home cooking at its finest. We loved our breakfast and enjoyed the small town feeling.

Planned to go to a different joint down the street but discovered that other one was cash only so Pippos was the place to go. It was great! Best diner food around and so cheap. Great service too (and they take credit cards)!

Stopped in for breakfast, lots of locals come here. We ordered huevos rancheros and chile omelet. Both were around $7.85 and came with hash brown potatoes and your choice of bread or pancakes. They have a senior (62 and older) menu which is a bargain....More

Small diner on Main St. The food was good and my order came out quickly. It is very strange walking thru the kitchen area to get to the rest room.
