Food was average and over priced service was awful too many other places to pay too much for poor service

The kids crush the pancakes. Mom loves the veggie scromlett and the southwestern Benedict is over the top. We make it a point to eat here every trip to CB. Be prepared to wait in season. It's worth it

I have had some good breakfasts here, but usually I find the service to be poor and even rude. I do not like eating at this place. the food is ok, but rude and unfriendly service is intolerable.

I think McGill's has some of the best biscuits and gravy I have ever tasted, their biscuits are a perfect texture, not so soft that they become soggy with gravy but not too tough that they're hard to cut with fork. The service was fast (although it wasn't crowded when we were there) and their coffee was very good. I... More

We stopped in just before closing and they let us in anyway and we're wonderful! Adorable place! Fab bacon and eggs, and I love a place that gives two small pancakes in lieu of toast as an option. We sat at the bar and chatted with the adorable waitress😊.

We first came for breakfast. Lots of food at a great price. Interesting combination of scrambled eggs and an omelette called a "scramlette" or "scromlette"; however it is named, it was great. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Apparently there is a new cook; he seems to be doing a great job. We returned for lunch a few days later... More

The menu does have lunch fare offered, but they do breakfast until closing and we had been told to eat their fabulous breakfast. My husbands Popeye omelet was delicious and large; of course, this was a spinach omelet. I had the salmon eggs Benedict and if I lived in Crested Butte, I would have it weekly! Both of these come...

Another regular of our places we like to visit when in CB. We have had lunch here often but never brunch. Other than a long wait (no reservations) the experience was good. My wife and I both had eggs benedict. Some of the best we have had, and highly recommended. Topped of with a minosa, it made the perfect brunch.

The breakfast choices we made were very good. Service was very slow, and they did not check back to see how everything was, but they were very busy. DO NOT get the hot chocolate, it did not taste like hot chocolate at all, more like water with a chocolate color. The entrees were very large, and I think we could... More
