This is a great place to go for breakfast or lunch where you can get a great meal at reasonable prices. The menu is extensive and the staff is efficient and courteous.

We are in town for a convention and was looking for breakfast. This looked like the spot. We got there right at opening time and got in line with the rest of the folks there. Well first off our first impression was from the rude...hostess demanding names and phone numbers with no explanation as to why. I understand there are covid rules and what not, but in a resort town where a lot of customers are not from here and familiar with those rules a simple explanation and a smile goes a long ways. We were seated and the waiter came over super nice young man. I ordered the corned beef hash and eggs and my wife got the eggs benedict and hashbrowns. We got our food and mine was good and had no issues. Now my wife's and for whatever reason had like a bowl of nacho cheddar cheese dripping all over everything. It actually ruined a pretty good dish. A little bit is one thing, but this was a ton of cheese. She scrapped most of it off and went ahead and ate the dish as it was almost $12. Overall our experience was average, take away the rude hostess and the excessive cheese and it would have been a "good" experience.More

We took our family here for a late breakfast and everything we had was great. The staff was great. The seating was reduced so that we were comfortable considering COVID. Definitely coming back.

This cafe is only open from 7:00-2:30pm but worth going. Menu is expansive and has both breakfast and lunch items. Wait was only 15-20 min for our party of 7. Service was great, but the food was amazing. Portion sizes also were worth your money....Definitely go here when in the area!!More

So pleasantly surprised with this local cafe!! Waited about 30-min to get in, worth it. Surprisingly hard to get decent food in Dillon - I blame it mostly on Covid, but not 100%. This cafe was so friendly and food was genuinely good! (Not just...OK). Menu made it hard to select. I’m not a breakfast food person so went for the burgers. You won’t be disappointed!!More

We saw reviews and thought we'd try it. The friendliness, cleanliness and tasty food makes this one of our favorites. The food is plentiful to take some home as their portions are good size. The waitresses were so nice and sweet to my granddaughter. We...will return!More

Excellent place for breakfast. On Sunday need to allow time to wait for a table, but worth the wait. Reasonably priced and friendly.

I had the Boarder's breakfast sandwich. Fluffy soft cooked scrambled eggs, with good homemade hash browns. Simple, yet delicious sandwich. The other people in my group had a huge plate of homemade corned beef hash and homemade biscuits with sausage gravy. Service was excellent. Restaurant...was very clean and nicely decorated. Will return when we are back in town!More

Had lunch here before shopping. The waiter, Kevin was very good and considerate. Friendly people but the food was superb. Husband had a burger and I had "The Rachel" which was a reuben, except with turkey. Bread was tasty and everything was served hot and...fast. Love coming here and will again.More

We stopped in here for breakfast because it was just down the hill from our hotel, which was not providing breakfast due to COVID. We both had breakfast "standards" that were hot and generous. My bacon and hash browns were exceptional. Service was friendly and...prompt. Prices were quite reasonable. We would come back here in a minute the next time we are in the area.More
