Best breakfast in town

A breakfast at the Smithy is a the best way to start a day in the mountains. There are many pancake and egg choices, fresh coffee and pitchers of orange juice and even newspapers to read while you wait for a able! The wait staff is friendly, patient, and efficient.

We love having breakfast on the patio.....the service is friendly and the food is fresh. We always park about 3 miles away and walk to the Village Smithy...we're ready for good food when we get there. The eggs are organic and well-prepared. T he pancakes and waffles are wonderful.

Obviously this is a very popular place, as there was no point even waiting for a table on the patio. This turned out ok because the indoor dining area is much quieter & more peaceful, if not particularly charming. Service was slow when we were there, tho there were empty tables inside. My husband's club sandwich was solid, good... tho... More

On the corner in old town Carbondale sits an old home converted to the rustic Village Smithy Restsurant. An all-day breakfast spot filled with locals as well as tourists. The beautiful covered porch that probably had 15 tables or more, was full, so we were comfortably seated inside. Very friendly hostess and waitress. The food was fantastic as was the... More

Old fashion down home breakfast and lunch spot ( close at 2pm). One of the best fresh breakfast places with oversized portions and be sure and save room for the homemade desserts they do a great job with a kids menu and everything is just really good.

Been eating at VS since 1976, and it's rare that a restaurant not only can stay open that long, but be as good -- no, better -- than it was last time I was there. Santa Fe Cakes are to die for. Highly recommended!

I've been to the Smithy several times a dive never been disappointed, unless it's because of the line to get in! Get there early to avoid the rush. He corn cakes pancakes are fantastic and I love the MacGurks. Good homemade salsa, andstrong coffee too.

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 don't know how they can make such a...

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
