Spacious new breakfast and lunch spot off of Durango in the same plaza as TC’s Rib Crib and Burrito Juarez. Friendly, quick service with plenty of tables and counter service in a clean and homey setting.
My first visit consisted of their red velvet pancakes ($6.99) — rich, dense, chocolatey pancakes covered in a lattice work of cream cheese icing. The cakey texture will make you think you’re eating a dessert for breakfast. It’s delicious and worth the calories, but you’ll fee guilty afterwards.
The second visit was a take-out order of their steak “Ooh-La-La” sandwich ($6.50) — thinly sliced grilled steak covered with sauteed mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, and mozzarella on a toasted bun. Roughly a 6″ sub, the bread was chewy, fresh, lightly toasted to give the interior some crunch. good amount of ingredients in the sammie. The meat, mushrooms and onions were slightly overcooked but still tasty. Came with plenty of fries (probably from a bag of frozen ones) and cole slaw. Good value for the price.
Their menu consists of plenty of breakfast items (many which are typical and can be found elsewhere), salads, soups, burgers, wraps, and sandwiches. They also have $5.99 lunch specials like meat loaf, pot roast, chicken curry and teriyaki chicken.
According to their web site, the owner, Norm, is originally from San Francisco but moved to Las Vegas in ’76 with his family. After working at the Hilton Hotel and his parent’s restaurant for several years he moved back to California to pursue a different career. And, just recently, he decided to move back to Vegas to open this café. With a mix of traditional American diner classics and a few trendy and popular items, let’s hope he attracts enough customers to flourish.
