If you're looking for a place to get a great breakfast at a good price in Durango, this is the place. This is where the locals eat and is a homey, country cafe type of place. The food is fantastic and the service is too.

Best Eggs Benedict I've had in a long long time...and I can't get them in m home town so eat them a lot on the road.. Hard to find a place to park, long wait, but worth it.
