Despite the attractive woodsy look and cozy looking outdoor patio, The Junction severely fails at what should be their number one priority: food! The Junction is located far away from most of the more touristy restaurants in the downtown area, so you could think the would specialize in delicious home cooked cuisine. Sadly, this is not the case.
The Junction offers your typical family restaurant menu consisting of a very large breakfast menu, sandwiches, soups, and random dinner entrees. The only difference being that the portions are incredibly small and the food itself not at all appetizing.
Breakfast, which is almost always delicious and more often than not an oversized serving, was bland and not at all satisfying. The scrambled eggs were not even brought out scrambled, but rather as a disgusting looking patty! The hash browns were cold. And the fruit looked like it came right out of a can! Everything was a tiny serving and way overpriced for the quality.
The Junction really needs to hire new cooks. If they cannot cook a simple breakfast, I cannot imagine how bad the dinner entrees would taste.
Service was standard: quick and efficient, yet not overly friendly.
The attractive log cabin style design of the interior and the cozy outdoor patio are nice, yet that doesn't really matter if the food is terrible! If the Junction could improve the food quality, it really could be a nice family restaurant. They have the upper hand having the attractive mountain design (which fits in perfectly with this small mountain town), now they just need to improve the food!
If you are craving a great breakfast that is affordably priced, skip the Junction in favor of 2 Chicks and a Hippy, an excellent local breakfast cafe with more flavorful food, bigger portions, and better pricing.
