Absolutely worth the turn off the highway

Stopped here for breakfast. Best omelet I've had in long time. Hashbrowns fruit and toast were great too. Good service, nice setting and great food. Well worth the stop and just a few minutes off the highway.

Mexican themed menu is great! Petra is so friendly. Reasonably priced and they have a nice patio in the summer.

Had supper last Saturday night and what a treat, the steak was perfect and the Apple dessert was just amazing. Petra and the staff are so attentive, that they make you feel right at home. Great atmosphere and a lovely old building, need I say more than you just got to eat here eh!

Always a good atmosphere. The pasta once again was warm and not hot and this time it was a bit bland. had to put salt several times. It was still good. Loved the bread that goes with it. Would have more of that. Loved the staff as always.

Staff was nice, food was average, if not even slightly below average. Not good value for money under these circumstances. In the end of our week in Golden, turned out to earn last spot of all restaurants visited.
