Authentic Americana, right here on Hoyt and Colfax. Built in 1957, somehow this Denver landmark has endured.

This steed stands sentinal over the hash slingin’.

I took these pictures on a Sunday afternoon after it closed at 3. On weekends year-round, it’s very busy for breakfast.

Vinyl booths and music at all of them.

I think the cowboy cook looks a little like James Arness in “Gunsmoke.”

    So excellent that this is still standing. Kudos to whoever in Denver didn’t let the wrecking ball hit this most excellent looking place.

    I don’t even care what the food tastes like once something looks like this. I’d be there as often as possible if I lived in Denver.

    If you ever pass here at night and can get a night shot of that absolutely stupendous sign I’d be most happy to have it here at AWMOK.

    What does the food taste like? (Though again, it hardly matters to me once someplace looks this stellar.)

    Only been there for breakfast, but it’s great “greasy spoon” fare. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, and the prices are very good.

    I’ll drive by it at night and get a shot too.

    Thank you for the Classique d’Camembert!
