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.

We were looking for a quick and inexpensive lunch before going to Garden of the Gods and this place gave us that. I had a chicken sandwich, which was good but too greasy. I had to constantly wipe my hands from holding the sandwich-the bread seemed to be bathed in butter. The fries are the same homemade potato cut fries... More

First time here. In for breakfast. Got seated after a 10 minute wait. Servers were working hard keeping things moving. I ordered a country omelet filled with Sausage, onion, Swiss cheese and hash browns covered with sausage gravy $ 9. Plus. Pretty good but kind of flat. They need to use a better quality sausage. Coffee cup was never empty.... More
