This girl can cook. A great spot. Woodstove was on. Coffee good and hot. Her lunches are worth the drive, but the breakfast sandwich is a special treat. Try her meatloaf if it is on the menu. A true country diner. Don't drive by this...More

We met some of the most wonderful people at this cafe and the food was excellent. We loved the decor, scenery but most of all the smiling friendly faces.

It would be hard to find a more friendly place to eat. On top of that, the Green Chile Bacon Cheese Burger is the best anywhere. Great country menu, delicious homemade pies and cake. Call ahead and make sure they are open.

The Elk X-ing is a fun destination for good food if you're up in the Mimbres Valley or on your way to the Gila. Charming rustic interior and good food.
