Like many reviews prior, the breakfast burrito and hash-browns are delicious! We eat at all kinds of places from fancy to dives and this is a good, clean family run business. Highly recommend for good food, good service and a local family run place.

Every time I visit my son Robert in Fort Collins we eat breakfast here and love it. Friendly people and fantastic food. The breakfast burrito with chorizo is my favorite!

A family owned and operated establishment that has been around for over 25 years, yet has maintained it's authentic, cozy, and homely feel. It's a small, diner-like cafe with an old fashioned style to it. The food is prepared and cooked by the owner, Moe Kamandy. Although hidden, there's a patio away from all the street noise where Moe plants his colorful flowers, making for a great place to relax and enjoy breakfast and a cup of coffee on a summer morning.
