Came with 4 other people for brunch. We ate outside. No problem getting refills on coffee. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

This restaurant was recommended to us by someone at our campground. That recommendation was right on, and I loved the fact that the tortillas that served as the base for this dish was fluffy and hot, not crunchy.

Most towns have a number of old-style cafes, serving up breakfast through lunch. Many have gone "upscale" to track the increasing demand for more foodie experiences. Others have simply gone out of business as the owners and operators retire and nobody in the family wants...More

Sure you can eat at a trendy place in Fort Collins, but if you miss this spot you’re not experiencing old town Fort Collins. Enjoy!!!

A family owned and operated establishment that has been around for over 25 years, yet has maintained it's authentic, cozy, and homely feel. It's a small, diner-like cafe with an old fashioned style to it. The food is prepared and cooked by the owner, Moe Kamandy. Although hidden, there's a patio away from all the street noise where Moe plants his colorful flowers, making for a great place to relax and enjoy breakfast and a cup of coffee on a summer morning.
