Friendly service, varied breakfast menu, inexpensive prices, large portions, delicious food, homemade bread. What could be bad? Perfect stop as we drove through town.

This time, we enjoyed the huge and delicious warm cinnamon rolls. Served with lots of frosting and butter on top. I'd like to return and try one of their breakfast plates, and definitely their big slices of toast!

The food here is the best! I would do lunch here any day. The breakfast burrito is my favorite. Many love the cinnamon roll because it's the size of your head.

Based on TA reviews, we tried this cafe for breakfast. It is definitely a local spot which we thought was a good sign. It took awhile for a waitress to notice us, but the service was good after she came over. Unfortunately, the food just was not good. The eggs were rubbery, the pancakes looked fluffy but had no flavor... More

We have always loved eating at this café. The staff is great as is the food and their prices. We love the homemade bread and many other homemade menu items. If in Alamosa you must treat yourself to a great meal at this café.

Very small and cute diner/cafe. The staff was very friendly and gave you a feeling of being welcome. The food was good and fairly inexpensive, which is rare now a days. I was there for breakfast and was very satisfied.

Arrived early to have breakfast and beat the Sunday AM church crowd. My wife had always raved about this local place since she grew up there and attended the old local high school and college near to where it is located. It was already somewhat crowded and we were directed to find our own seating which we did. The waitress... More

Very small cafe, was able to get in and get a table, but not one person greeted us, or helped us within 10 minutes of sitting down. No menu's given to us to look at while waiting or anything. I can't tell you how the food was because we got up and left. I would not recommend or go back.
