Best food in Old Colorado City or most of Colorado Springs, for that matter. Food is always fresh, hot and delicious. Staff is attentive & friendly. Not a chain but beats them hands down.

great food . . . and Tara likes to serenade the guests! Don't miss the cinnamon rolls, if they haven't run out. Omelets, pancakes, green chile - they've got it all!
