Great small cafe off the highway. Does open at 7 AM and close at 3 PM. Breakfast was excellent! The staff is friendly and attentive. Chama is a very small town, restaurants are very limited. This is great place for breakfast.

We both ordered burgers which were cooked to order and had very fresh ingredients. My husband had French fries and I had a side salad which were very good. It appeared a family ran the shop and were very friendly and attentive.
