What a great spot for an outdoor breakfast. My husband and I walked a few blocks on a Monday morn. I can only imagine how busy it is on a weekend. I started with a beautifully finished cafe au lait that kicked things off in...More

I have nothing negative to say about this place. This little restaurant is set up with decorations that conjure up a bit of magic from the deep South. You feel as if you're entering a different world. Our waitress, Jessie, was on point with everything,...More

The fellow sitting next to me on the plane to Denver suggested this unique place. What a find! The green tomato eggs benedict and the pecan pancakeswere delicious, the service friendly and fast. What more could you ask?

I had the Buffalo hash which was unique and amazing. If I go back I will be having that again. The coffee was great and service was great. My wife had the blackened chicken mac and cheese which we also both enjoyed.

WOW! We have found a new breakfast place!! You may have a hard time finding this place, if you don't know about where it is. It sits directly across the street from The City Grille, south side of Colfax. You walk in, and it's quaint....More
