Mountain cafe is a great family run local restaurant. One of our favorites. It is clean and always friendly. The food is always great. The menu may be considered somewhat limited but has something for everyone with daily specials too. Only a block off central Ave (Rt 287) it is convenient. If a casual breakfast or lunch is what you... More

This is a hidden gem in Fort Collins downtown. Love pretty much everything that they have to offer. Their French Toast is one of my favorites, also the cinnamon roles are amazing..! The Persian Platter in their daily specials happened to catch my eye, and I asked the owner about it. She gave me a very generous portion of it,... More

My husband and I have been visiting the Mountain Café for over 25 years. Breakfast and lunch are both great, but now that we are retired, breakfast is very special to us. We so enjoy the warm, inviting atmosphere; thoughtful, kind employees and in addition the biscuits and gravy and blueberry pancakes are fabulous. It is hard to find a... More

My family has been going to the Mountain Café for many years. It is my choice to go there every year for my birthday!. A family run business that makes you feel at home! Most everything is made from scratch including the biscuits and sausage gravy, the salsa (be sure and make this special request instead of the usual bottled... More

This is a hidden gem in Fort Collins! The food is quick, affordable, and yummy. Great place for a quick breakfast without the long wait at a place like Snooze.

Linda and I are great fans of The Mountain Cafe and, apart from serving a GREAT breakfast, we've become friends with the most pleasant staff and include the proprietor, Mo, his lovely wife Huria as personal friends - and we've seen Jamal and Michelle grow into fine young adults. The Australian/New Zealand Community make the Mountain Cafe its Anzac Day... More
