Mountain Home Cafe’s breakfast & lunch eats.

070Five things I like about Mountain Home Café in Estes Park’s Upper Stanley Village café: 1) It was not too noisy; 2) The food was scratch-made; 3) service was attentive; 4) breakfast dishes are available any time the café is open; 5) it appears to be a generous business, supporting local and health causes.

Simple café keeps the volume down with acoustic tile on the ceiling and carpet on the floors -- not a modern look but easy on the eardrums.

Breakfast is served all day — the day being defined as 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.  We arrived toward the end of the cafe’s “day,” and both ordered breakfast dishes.

Gut-busting heuvos rancheros -- pork green chili, corn tortillas layered with black beans, chorizo and cheddar cheese, topped with two eggs and served with skillet potatoes and two slices of toast. If that weren't enough my husband added a side of bacon.
