Good place for comfort food. Decent option for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy, but overall a good small town café or diner.

We visit this place at least once for breakfast when we come to Estes Park. Nothing fancy, just a regular diner. Portions are big and price is good.

Enjoyed the food, service was good, a bit of a wait for a table but worth it. Will eat here again next time I'm in Estes Park.
