Taking my daughter to Ft. Lewis to begin her college career and we found this great little restaurant right before heading up the hill for orientation. The coffee's aroma met us at the door; mountain hot, fresh, strong! The waitress and cashier was friendly and...More

If you're looking for a place to get a great breakfast at a good price in Durango, this is the place. This is where the locals eat and is a homey, country cafe type of place. The food is fantastic and the service is too.
