I admit it - I went there solely to check out the giant cinnamon roll that I saw on a Facebook post and a Guy Fiery endorsement from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I give it an A+. When I ordered it I almost asked for extra icing - but didn't - which would have been hilarious because it regularly comes... More

This is really good home style cooking with fast service. The venue is an old house in the Old Colorado City neighborhood. We have had breakfast and lunch here many times and the food and service is always excellent. In the warmer months I recommend eating out front on the patio next to the sidewalk.

I loved my lunch order here (chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes). Apparently, so did my work colleagues - they had no leftovers and my boss ordered two salads. Note to self: try salad next time. Extra points for the cute '80s plastic tumblers for water. Loved the perky staff, too - it really does make a difference. The restaurant... More

Stopped for breakfast with our son on a trip from Aurora area. Prompt service and plenty of comfort food. Son and wife shared a huge cinnamon roll, more like half a loaf cake, with maple cinnamon drizzle. Egg breakfast was filling with more than enough portions. Only issue is very limited parking, on-street only, as near as I could tell.

When I lived in the Springs, this was my go to place. I loved pretty much all the food they offered. I'm sad it took me a year to find out about it. They are always busy because their food is so great. I really miss their biscuts and gravy. They have always been professional and quick to take my... More

Saw this place on TV, and when we went to try it absolutely amazing. The place is a bit small, but the food is absolutely amazing. You won't be disappointed you made the stop at this incredible place to eat in Old Colorado City.

Parking is almost nonexistent, they have about 5 spots at the rear. Inside they can seat I would say about 30 to 50. I think most walk to this restaurant.

You can often tell if a restaurant is good by how busy it is and this restaurant was very busy- we had to wait a little to get a table but it was worth the wait - the food was very, very good as well as the service

Thankfully they have counter seating because there was a wait mid Sunday morning. All outside tables were occupied on this 50 degree day. Big food of average quality in a welcoming, friendly atmosphere.
