Stopped in for breakfast at the suggestion of folks at the airport in Hayden. Lots of breakfast choices and omelettes were nicely done (as in not overcooked). Served with potatoes and choice of toast. Filling meal with friendly staff.

The Staff was very friendly. The Food was Fast but was not quite as delicious as other places for breakfast. We did not try Lunch so it might be Great!

This is a great place for breakfast in downtown Steamboat. Always busy and , and the Huevos with chorizo is just what you need in the morning.

We ate here for breakfast. The service was friendly! We had the corn beef hash, vegetarian omelet, and pancakes. The size was generous. Honestly, the omelets seem to be fluffier, and the corn beef hash was not very salty. Give this place a try!

We stopped with the family at this restaurant. It looks small from outside but it has a lot of room inside. The menu covers all breakfast specialties. You can see the kitchen and the cooks working. The food is quite tasty. The link sausage is awesome and hash-brown is crispy and tasty. The service is friendly and quick. Highly recommend.

The food at the shack is always delicious, and the friendly servers keep the coffee and water flowing. We especially love their breakfast and the bacon is always cooked to perfection. They just might have the best bacon in town. Remember, bacon is part of a healthy diet! When I go to other breakfast restaurants, I miss their homemade jams,... More

This place looked like a quintessential hole in the wall pace with good old fashion food and we were correct! My wife and I had a great breakfast, she had the pancakes, hash browns, bacon and eggs over easy, had the French dip with hash browns.
