Wow best breakfast while on vacation in Colorado. Better than a few dinners we had too! So many items to choose asked what would be best for someone who had not been there before.

Good range of menu items with daily specials. I had the chicken fried steak sandwich and it was very tasty and huge. Service is very friendly and the prices are reasonable. But then again the food has to be good, the owners are from Texas ;-) Plan on going back for one of their special breakfasts.

I especially like the cowpoke for breakfast, the salad wagon, and the bayfield fries with ranch. They have the chicken fried steak on special often. It's very good. We eat here often.

From outward appearances, one might think twice about stopping at Brenda's Old West Cafe, but trust me on this, it is WELL worth the stop! Comfortable atmosphere, a generally friendly staff and great menu selections are just the start here. Prices are reasonable and portions are filling plus - be prepared to request a doggy bag!

Great breakfast, we split a plate and could have used a 3rd person to help us finish the meal. The chicken fried steak was huge and tender, the gravy was good. The biscuits were soft, homemade and as Trump would say "HUGE". The place had a very cute ranch like decor. This is home cooking at its best. IF it... More

Each entree at Brenda's is superb and the friendly service makes you feel right at home. If their veggie selection for the day doesn't include my favorite fried okra or corn fritters, they will fix it for me. Freshly made onion rings are delicious. It is the local's favorite so it is a chance to visit with friends dining at... More
