Breakfast on the weekend is GREAT with a wonderful view of airplanes coming and going . Food is nothing special but the view of the Mogollon Rim is worth a visit!.

The breakfasts are pretty dang good, and the view of the runway is spectacular. The only negative thing I can add is that the wait is terribly long. Because of the view people like to visit, so people will occupy a table long after they're done eating. It's very frustrating.

We stopped in just for pie and to see the planes. We were not disappointed. Wish we had come for lunch also. Waitress was very nice. The restaurant was clean and inviting.

We have eaten here on and off over the last few years, but this week-end we had friends from out of town, so we thought we'd take them somewhere different. On Sunday, expect a wait, especially after everyone gets out of church. It is worth the wait and you don't have to wait long, because they have a large dining... More

Traditional diner food with a full view of the Payson Airport Runway. The radio is tuned to the local airport frequency so you can here the comings and goings of pilots.

Great breakfast at reasonable prices. You get large portions. If you visit at 6pm, you can watch the UPS plane land in front of the restaurant and load parcels to be delivered to Phoenix. Lots of airplane and pilot photos on the wall. Eat with the locals. great views of Payson en route to crosswinds restaurant.

Very good food. The service is always good. There is sometimes a wait for a table on the weekend but it is worth it. Family friendly and reasonably priced. One of our favorite places to eat in Payson.

This is a great little diner overlooking the runway and the valley and mountains beyond. We could sit here for hours and look at the view. The burgers are good. The pie is better than good! (save room for dessert - or just eat dessert). We make sure we go through Payson when we are in the area just to... More

This is just a little cafe, with great staff, that offers cafe food while you watch planes land and takeoff in Payson, AZ. The view of the Mogollon Rim is awesome and a nice added feature. Food is good.
