On our way out of town we stopped in for breakfast. We sat outside and enjoyed a delicious Western Omelette and a breakfast burrito and could not resist adding a fresh blueberry pancake. Everything was so good. The pancake had a touch of cinnamon or...More

We ate breakfast there the first morning and the food was ok, but very over-priced. We had there specials with two drinks plus coffee and oj. $30. A little steep for breakfast. The food was good, but expensive for the setting and service.

Once we found Pena's, near our lodge, we went every morning for breakfast. The food is fresh and delicious, the owners and staff are friendly and efficient. One day, there were no available tables, and some local residents invited us to share their table. This...More

Again, this is one those places that the food is never really consistent. I get the same thing every time I go and every other time, I have a problem of some kind. Under cooked, over cooked, etc. People and waiters are friendly enough. Usually...More
