Do not waste your money or time – This cafe has the worst quality food possible and still call it food. Breakfast was two cold, old biscuits that turned to crumbs when touched, the hash browns were cold raw and white, maybe they were on the grill 10 seconds, the scrambled eggs were orangy goo poured from a bucket with the crispy crust I had hoped to see on the potatoes. The 1/4 cup of gravy was translucent with specks of something in it. Obviouslly a mix made only with water and thickener. I ordered biscuits with sausage gravy so I thought it would be milk gravy with bits of sausage in it.
None of that was fit to eat so I tried to make the best of it and choked down one sausage patty. Disgusting and for eating any of the slop my stomach hurt and I mean HURT for 6 hours. My husband's over medium well eggs were almost raw, but at least they were real eggs.. He refused to accept his cold biscuit and asked the waitress to take it back and exchange it for toast. She seemed dumbfounded as to why he did not want to eat a cold biscuit. But she brought toast and it was warm. She told him no extra charge. Then as we were about to leave she snatched the ticket out of his hand and said "Let me get you a new ticket." and when she brought it back she had added $1.89 for the toast. She never once asked if my food was ok and all I ate off of the plate was one sausage patty. Why anyone would eat here more than once is beyond me.
Cold food – I've been to this restaurant three times for breakfast, and unfortunately the third time was not the charm. Every time I had to send back the food to be reheated. The waitresses looked bored and obviously they didn't want to be there.
Real Service – This is one of the few restaurants in El Paso that we've been to that you actually have real, helpful, friendly, service. We're usually part of the weekend breakfast crowd and have always been seated promptly and actually had a server that seemed to care more about the customer than who got trashed at the party last night or who's seeing who. Food is nothing to get excited about as it is the typical village inn fare. One tip though -- they either need to rearrange the tables on the side with the restrooms or get rid of a couple of them. The last time we were there, my husband and I ended up getting up and pushing our table and chairs aside so a wheelchair bound person could get through.
