It was an $18 brunch with bare basics and an omelette station. Not many positives other than the great view of the Animas River below and a friendly waitress. Unlike any other omelette station I've been too as you write your order on a note size piece of paper with your name on it and are told to check back at this counter occasionally to see if your order is there. The young man working there apparently had no training and had a stack of orders and two empty frying pans at the time. I checked often and a half hour later I was told my order was next so figured I might as well just wait there. He then proceeded to put one of the pans in a plastic bucket of water with old food floating in gray water sitting down by the floor and slosh a rag around the pan. He then held the pan over a trash can and wiped it dry with no rinse. He then turns the electric burner back on and puts oil in the pan and ladled some pre mixed eggs into the cold pan. He added a mix of ingredients as there were no choices on the order sheet and mixed them around with his gloved hand. I had already lost what little appetite I had left and returned to the sticky table to eat it. Not sure if it really tasted as bad as watching the preparation but finished after a few bites. The dried out pastries didn't help. I'm sure 90% of the diners here are hotel guests and locals have known for years. Too bad this beautiful setting can't produce a good meal.
