I always find it interesting when I read negative reviews by people who go tons restaurant one time and they think they know everything about a place. How sad. I've been going to this place for years. I've had way over 100 meals here. If anyone knows Cutthroat Cafe, it's me! Their food is fabulous. I have NEVER had a... More

We found the Cutthroat Cafe by chance when we asked a local where to eat. I knew it was good when I saw the sheriffs deputies there. We got the special and I couldn't eat it all! Best cheesy potato soup ever! It is now on my always stop list!

Oh boy, where do I start?...the location? The atmosphere? The staff? The food? All were great! Cutthroat Cafe reminded me of a popular hangout from some great television show about locals that made you want to be one of them. The girls working there were so nice and joked right along with a group of southerners on a guy trip... More

Stopped by on a little vacation. Great burger, good salad, and dad (older) loved the liver and onions. Staff was great, one asked where we were from and made a familiar connection even though we were a long way from home. Nice stop!

When traveling in this part of Colorado, the Cutthroat Cafe needs to be on your spots to have breakfast! Mostly locals in there, but who needs a chain tourist spot when you can have great food and good coffee?! The menu has a good variety of many breakfast choices,but don't forget the blackboard specials; one I went for was the... More

What a surprise! The food and staff are GREAT! Felt like a member of the family. The value was good, as well. I am definitely going to make this a regular stop from now on.

This is always our first stop on any mountain trip from Denver up Hy 285. It's about an hour up the hill and is in a perfect place for a stop to stretch your legs. This is a local cafe with fantastic food and fantastic service. When you're disappearing into the mountains for a few days this is just the... More

This place is fantastic. It is just what you want in a mountain town dining experience. The food is consistent and good. They hire mostly local high school students as wait staff, and they are usually down to earth and friendly and a little rough around the edges. The owner is an avid angler (as the name would imply) and... More
