What the owner says: “In this business you’re about as good as your last weekend. We’re very engaged in our employees and our customers. We have a low turnover rate in terms of our staff. We have a regular following of people up here, but people hiking and driving in the mountains stop by too. We use really good ingredients — the best bacon you can buy and Jimmy Dean sausage. We focus on every plate. Portion sizes are big, and it comes out fast. We have a pretty large menu. We serve breakfast from 8 (a.m.) to 2 (p.m.) and we don’t cut it off. Some people want pancakes at 1:30 in the afternoon after hiking, and we can do that … If you want your coffee to go, we’ll freshen it up and pack it to go.” — Denis White, owner
