The breakfast here is the BEST in Ruidoso. Abundant food, constant refills on your drink or coffee. Excellent selections and always great "special of the day". Friendly staff and lovely mountain ambiance. You will enjoy the log cabin

Nice local hangout in rustic atmosphere. My husband and I go for breakfast, always good. Omelettes are excellent. Large portions. Best biscuits and gravy! Go early or you'll have a wait.
