Even though it was a chilly day, we sat outside because we had our dog with us. Our server was very pleasant and helpful and she didn't seem to mind running outside to wait on us. Unfortunately, the food left a lot to be desired....More

We went here for breakfast three days in a row. We loved the omelettes...and the service was very good. Each day, the chef puts together several specials. Some that had the pancakes loved them as well. Not a fancy place, but great service from Charity...More

This downtown spot is tucked away but don't overlook it for a solid breakfast and one of the best bloody mary's in Steamboat! They serve everything from eggs to pancakes with good coffee. It's right downtown so perfect to begin your day of Steamboat Shopping!

This is a great place for breakfast type items. Typical menu options but it seems they had an unusual large number of omelette options- Highly recommend an omelette!!

I stopped here because their prices for breakfast were better than most other places in town, and they had good reviews. My server was excellent, never letting my coffee cup go empty. The value for my breakfast was great, and it was delicious.
