A regular offering. Not much in the order of "special." Service was slow, but we weren't in any hurry. So it wasn't the deciding factor on whether to return. Just too many other great breakfast places in Fort Collins.

The restaurant seats a good number and the tables can be arranged to seat a party of ten. I'd call ahead to ensure they can do this with the normal customers who frequent this place.
