Great breakfast. Sit outside watching the road - where you get one car drive by an hour. Just like being in the movie Paris, Texas.

Only one open at 6:30 besides the gas station. Decent cup of coffee should have waited for fort stockton.

Hot breakfast spot when staying at the Gage Hotel. Good breakfast skillets as well as healthy options. Nice coffee options. A bit short staffed, so the cashier had to be reminded of several coffee orders as she doubles as the barista!

Solid coffee house that sells wine too. Limited menu but good coffee. It is right next door to a cool little store where you can shop while you wait for your coffee
