Stopped by here for my first breakfast after completing the 484-mile Colorado Trail. Love the fact that their hash browns have green chiles and cheese fried up inside them -- best hash browns I've had in a long time. The small kitchen does a great job of cranking our the food.
Interior is cute, though it is not a big place. Location is just a strip mall, but it still looked nicer than the Durango Diner nearby.
Waitresses were all quick and friendly, though it was odd that there were several that changed over while I was there from 7:30 to 8:30. Perhaps college students getting hours before class?
Wish you could order part of those monster cinnamon rolls!

The usual breakfast fair but with flair. Apparently someone there likes the traditional 50's diner ambiance because this place has a lot of it! Photos, signs and other stuff makes the place more than a strip mall breakfast joint! Had one pancake which was the size of the dinner plate, if yer hungry this is the place to go, open really early which was helpful for me as I had to be at the Durango Fall Arts Festival for early setup. If your getting on the train early this place would be good also!

This cafe was like a blast from my past spending summers with my grandparents, going to ma & pa diners to eat. Great atmosphere and price; friendly, attentive staff and prompt service. Good food, large portions go hungry or be prepared to take some home. Close quarters but enough space to enjoy food. Would recommend to travelers in the area, worth the stop.

Well worth a breakfast stop but, like a true diner, it's bustling with activity and noise. Who cares unless you're hoping for an intimate setting? The food is great. Casual, efficient, go for it.

Okay, did not know much about Durango during my recent business trip, but found this diamond in the rough for breakfast and will put it on my "return to" list. Oscar's Café is like walking back in time, old time diner with really good food. Great coffee, quick service, and a nice staff will keep you smiling. Tucked away in a little shopping plaza along the main drag, find it, and enjoy it.
