Johnson's Corner

2842 SE Frontage Rd., Loveland, CO - (970) 667-2069
Johnson's Corner is famous for its cinnamon roll, a monumentally-sized piece of pastry that fills out a dinner plate. It arrives warm and smothered with sweet, white icing, accompanied by buttery spread. For a more balanced rib-sticking breakfast, you cannot beat chicken-fried steak, here served with all the suitable complements: eggs as you like them, a large patty of crisp-fried hash browns, a biscuit (nondescript) and, of course, plenty of thick cream gravy.

The Johnson's Corner cinnamon roll is a highway legend. It is a mesa of pastry approximately 6x6x3 inches, served warm under a mantle of sweet white icing.

While in no way deluxe, this chicken-fried steak is very satisfying. It is as as full-flavored as sausage and has the right ratio of meat to crust. Thick, slightly peppery gravy is the right condiment. Jane always orders hers on the side so she can dip each bite into the gravy, thus insuring an always-crisp crust.

On our visit, the cinnamon roll of the month was blueberry with cream cheese.  Softer and with less icing than the regular cinnamon roll, we actually preferred this one.

When we dined at Johson's Corner at 10am, the red chile was not quite ready, but the green was ready to serve. It is a hearty brew laced with shreds of chicken and lots of vegetables, reminding us of Kentucky burgoo. While not ferociously hot, it has a potent green chile flavor.

A vestigial amenity from the days before cell phones: an actual land-line telephone at every booth. You can use it to call your dispatcher on an 800 number, or with a calling card.

Johnson's Corner is a large, welcoming facility where truckers, automobilists, and bikers can find just about anything they need on their travels north of Denver.
