Consistently the best restaurant for breakfast/lunch in Carbondale for over 35 years!

I'm a semi-regular at the Smithy, and have been since 1979. The restaurant has been 'the locals favorite' more times than I can count. Virtually anything you order on the menu will likely be the best you've ever eaten of that kind of recipe. My all-time favorite is their blueberry corncakes; I... read more

My wife and I visit Colorado summertimes only and usually go to the Village Smithy at least once -- it's a fifteen minute drive from our lodgings. It's a breakfast/lunch place that is extraordinarily popular. Tourists and locals travel for miles to eat there -- it's also a popular summertime destination for bicyclers -- and unless you can successfully strategize... More

Our group of 4 adults in their 50s were vacationing @ River Valley Ranch when we went for breakfast 7/201/2015 before hiking a few miles on the Avalanche Creek Trail. We only waited a few minutes for a table to open on the outside deck, long enough to look over the extensive & varied conglomeration of personal mugs that regulars... More

Service was prompt and friendly. They took our order within 5 minutes of arriving, food arrived 10 minutes later. The club sandwich and Santa Fe chicken salad were well prepared and good sized. Lunch for 2 was a little over $27. There is indoor and outdoor seating. We would come back when in the area.

We always enjoy going to the Village Smithy. The food and service are great with a very local atmosphere. Expect a wait especially on weekends however the wait is worth it.

The Smithy is the best place to grab breakfast in town. Good food. Good people. Great service. I always ask to sit in Shane's sections - he's always on it and accommodates all my dietary needs! Thanks smithy!

On weekends, there's almost always a wait of 20 minutes or so. Don't sweat it, you made the right choice. Have a coffee and chill. Read the bulletin board posters and find out what's going on in this coolest of little towns. With 10 years as a local, The Smithy always delivers. The waitresses are friendly and engaging, the menu... More

I liked my breakfast, but it didnt inspire the imagination. The patio is a lovely space with a covered area, making for a pleasant dining experience. Staff is friendly and quick. We'll be back, but maybe not every week.

Everyone loves the Smithy. With a unique, hometown feel, a friendly staff, and the best breakfast you'll eat anywhere, you can't go wrong.
