This tiny diner has amazing food in large portions and decent prices. It's a popular place so be prepared for a wait as the diner is small and the crowds can be large...especially Sunday breakfast. Well worth the wait! The staff are warm and welcoming....More

The food was amazing I would go back there any time. The 50s decor adds a flare. I recommend this to any one even vegetarians.

Breakfast in the local style, great coffee, large portions of perfectly-cooked food, served by an enthusiastic and attentive team. And at a very reasonable price. There is no reason to go anywhere else for breakfast in Durango.

This is where the locals gather for breakfast - and so should you. Because they've tried them all, and come here. Good homestyle food at very reasonable prices. Enough "different" options to bring you back again, too. The Half and Half B&G is simply awesome,...More

We ate breakfast here on our last day in Durango before heading out for Santa Fe, and we LOVED it! They have HUGE cinnamon rolls, as well as all kinds of pie and other baked goods. We all ordered regular breakfast items, then our friend...More

So sorry your experience at Oscar's was not what you expected; like going to Del Frisco's, Morton's, and other top end places, sometimes things just don't mesh. Could have caught them on a bad day (although they were busy... More
