From the bottomless cups of coffee to the hometown cooking, frequenting a local Durango diner is a tasty tradition. Whether its a much-needed French toast fix or a quick cure for the previous nights festivities, breakfast at a diner provides nutrition like no other. Weekend tables fill quickly as the early morning coffee crowds belly up to the breakfast counter, and the chatter slowly rises as the caffeine takes hold. No matter what you order or how long the stay a morning at a local diner is time well spent.
