This cozy little bistro along Route 105 which is the main thoroughfare through Palmer Lake is a local institution. Breakfast has many delicious items, including crepes. We were also happy to see avocado toast with a nicely cooked egg on top. My friend had the quiche of the day which she said was delicious, while I tucked into my strawberry salad. Everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked scrumptious. Seating is a bit tight so anyone needing special access may have a problem moving around indoors, but there is a patio outside which has easier access. The bar is small but lively. Dinner is served on Fridays/Saturdays and there is live music as well. Special events like evening wine tastings happen from time to time. Best to check their website.

We came in, found a table and had intended to eat here. We were completely ignored for an hour, not one person came to our table or acknowledged our existence. There are so many other places in the near vicinity that want customers that we will forever take our business elsewhere.

One of the last places we have tried in Palmer Lake. By far one of the best places we have been to for breakfast. Large portions, fresh and served hot. Great little place with a great hometown vibe.

Crepes, homemade french toast with orange infused cream cheese, eggs with bratwurst, ... very interesting and tasty cuisine in a rustic roadside cafe, bar, motorcyclists favorite stop.

BEST homemade chef created breakfasts in a 50 sq mi area. Small, very small, location in an ol 'days gone' by storefront in downtown Palmer Lake ~ but quaint and SO worth the wait. Perfect service and servers and spot on breakfast dishes ~ we drive 20 mi from Castle Rock after church ~ and enjoy every yummy bite.
