We visited after reading reviews. Very good breakfast with good portions of food and a friendly staff. Food is cooked to order. Lots of repeat customers and friendly chatter. I had poached eggs, bacon, toast, hash browns and my cousin had an omelet. Excellent.

Small local restaurant close to the Avery House. I had the blueberry pancake special with eggs and bacon. Filling and tasty. Not a large wait staff but they move and get the job done efficiently. Seat yourself and relax

This seems to be a lesser known place in Ft Collins, but I’m so glad we found it. The food was amazing, service was wonderful. It’s small, but we went at prime breakfast time and had no wait. Prices were very reasonable. I will be...More

I haven't been here in ages BUT I had to come to town for business SO this is the place for breakfast once again. Hardly anything has changed since my last review except MAYBE the prices. The service is still good although it wasn't busy....More

Mountain Cafe has been in Fort Collins for 28 years and never disappoints! Delicious home cooking, whole roasted ground coffee, fresh ingredients and a friendly staff!

When we come back to FoCo to visit, we like to seek out local places. In a downtown area saturated by new, trendy (breakfast) restaurants, we were surprised to find that Mountain Cafe had been at the same location for 28 years. We were greeted...More

Found this place by accident after long waiting times at other places. This restaurant is small but very friendly and they make you feel family. The breakfast burrito was good and the pancakes were even better. Will definitely come back.

I have no idea because I would never post a false review or anything I would want deleted. Perhaps one could post the truth and correct the false statements from the prior post.

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.
