Clean, nice, huge breakfast portions. What else do you need? Oh yeah the servers are great and will accommodate changes and split entrees happily. Just a great breakfast/brunch/lunch place. Highly recommend if downtown.

This is where the locals meet clients, associates for morning coffee and eggs. Full breakfast menu (I only ate here for breakfast but they also serve lunch.). Fabulous gluten free pancakes!

Nice diner in heart of Crested Butte, I ordered the smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict for lunch, yes available all day long. My wife had the asian salad which was topped with very rare and very good Tuna. Easy on pocketbook as well.
