First time here. The red chili breakfast burrito was delicious. The owners, Kim and Jim, are very friendly, attentive, and make great hosts. The dining room is warm and cozy with wood tables and mountain feel decor. I will definitely be back.

Great local place with delicious homemade food. We arrived first thing in the morning and had "bear paw" bread that just came out of the oven. The folks who own the restaurant were so friendly. Like having a meal at a friend's house
