We were "car-hiking" around the Medicine Bow Snowy Range and saw Vern's Place. What a treat for us that we did. I had the Cuban Black Bean Soup and my wife had the Chili---both were excellent. The service was good and the local atmosphere was great.

I would call this a local treasure. Nothin fancy, just your simple meat and potatoes menu. Try the green chile stew...good stuff. Cinnamon rolls, pies all the yummy for your tummy stuff. friendly servers. Warm weather patio over looking the river.

Your basic coffee shop/diner atmosphere, cozy, relaxed, unfussy. In warm weather the patio is open and you can enjoy views for miles. Inside is great on a snowy day. Try the breakfast burrito, you'll never want one from anywhere else. Two things I don;t like that I will stuff into my face at Vern's: their cinnamon rolls and their country... More

Yep, that's right! Took almost 30 waiting on a Saturday morning! Good big cinnamon rolls, and vast breakfast food fun. Yep, the guys at the next table really did order the beers at 9 am! Ha!

Vern's has been there forever. If you find yourself in the neighborhood do stop and get one of their incredible cinnamon rolls!

1st time family visit, love the place great setting & good food. Apparently Vern's is famous for cinnamon rolls so we couldn't not share one which was given the seal of approval around the table! Coffee all round whilst we studied the breakfast menu. Choices around the table:- breakfast burritos, green chilli scrambled eggs on Rye toast, eggs sunnyside up... More

Good restaurant where locals go for a suit down dinner. Steak is great and they are known for their chilli. Recently remodeled it is nice with a log cabin feel. You can also get gas, fishing licenses and they have a small bakery as well. Family owned it it's a good place to eat. Prices are decent.

My husband used to go here when he was in college 40 years ago so we were delighted to find it still in business and still serving those famous, delicious cinnamon rolls! We also had breakfast which was excellent. In spite of it being a very busy Sat. morning I was impressed by how quickly we were seated and how... More

Enjoyed a great lunch here recently! The food was fantastic, and eating out on the patio was really nice. HOWEVER...the server was very rude, completely inattentive, and treated us poorly. We ended up asking another waitress for assistance and she wasn't any nicer! I could understand being short/quick if the place was busy, but it was pretty slow when we... More
