Ordered to go and was disappointed with all three dishes upon arriving home. The “huevos rancheros” were more like a deconstructed omelette and lacked flavor. The eggs with the overly-breaded country fried steak tasted like they came straight out of a carton; the hash browns...on the side were standard. The pancakes were rubbery and the cinnamon roll was stale, as well. I think because Fairplay is so small and there’s not another breakfast joint, people’s first choice is the Brown Burro. It was packed but don’t let that fool you. While the customer service was good (hostess was friendly and the only reason I’m giving it a 2-star rating instead of 1), find another place to place to eat.More

We got breakfast here after spending the night in Fairplay. Excellent little diner and amazing service. Even though they were short staffed, and a single waitress was working the whole room, service was great and food was excellent.

We stopped in for a bit of lunch while passing through. Fun little place with super friendly people. I had a grilled ham and cheese and my wife had tacos. We caught them at a busy time so it took a bit longer, but it...was still a great place to stop.More

Fun, little spot with small town charm. Nice atmosphere. Really friendly service. Everything we had was wonderful... breakfast omelette and huevos rancheros (breakfast served all day!). Would absolutely go again if we went through Fairplay.

Even tho we had to wait in the nearby interesting coffee and gift shop for about 40 minutes to get a table,our family of 5 felt it was well worth the wait...time to chill and get a little acquainted with Fairplay main street. Five different...breakfasts which were all as amazing as other reviewers said they were. We'll definitely go back.More

We stopped at the Brown Burro Cafe on the way to Breckenridge. I am happy we did! I only wish we had stopped there every time we drove to Breckenridge. We only got chips and salsa (which was very unique, healthy, and yummy!) and a...mug, but next month when we go to Breckenridge again we will stop and eat. I loved the warm and welcoming bar...it would be a great place to sit and have a cup of coffee! The whole place is very cozy! I notice the place is for sale...and when someone buys it I hope they also open a cute place just like this one! We will be back every time we pass it!More
