I had one of the specials. It was an omelet with potatoes and toast. They were busy and it only took a moment to get our food. Good value in Historic Durango.

Parking can be a little difficult. No parking charge on the weekends and most holidays. Coffee refilled without being asked. Great food and great portions. You won't need to worry about lunch!
