We arrived here on a beautiful Saturday afternoon after a train ride. We were very hungry and very thirsty. The sign outside on the patio said wait to be seated so we did, and did, and did, and finally a outdoor patron said to us, you will have to go and find someone we did. So I started walking inside...

Hi okColorado and thank you for your review!! Yes, I agree with you, the day after the 4th of July was a very busy and chaotic day, and I am very sorry you had to wait for a table and were not greeted immediately. Unfortunately for us we were understaffed that day due to an illness. I really wish these... More

My mom and I arrived during the mid-day rush. All of the outside tables were full, so we sat inside which was fine as it was somewhat windy outside. The staff was quite busy as everyone was running here and there. After a short wait our server came over and took our orders. I had the vegetarian burrito and my... More

A party of 3 for lunch presented a problem in that they only had tables for 2 or 8 available. The staff seemed annoyed when we simply suggested that they separate the two tables used for a party of 8 to create two tables with 4 places. What a concept! After grudgingly accommodating us, we were then ignored for 15... More

Hello and thank you so very much for your review. I am so sorry that you were not sat immediately and that the staff seemed flustered and possibly annoyed. Unfortunately we do try to reserve our larger tables for larger groups, as it is a very popular time of year for large families to travel together. It is not always... More

The restaurant is located in one of the many original 1800's homes in Georgetown. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, depending on the weather. We chose to sit indoors. The restaurant has an extensive menu, yet nothing specifically for the children, so we adapted for our 2-67 yr-old group. The fresh fruit bowl and quiche were definite highlights. There... More

Very tasty breakfast at good value - I'm a big breakfast fan and while the decor is simple the breakfast is hearty and delicious.

On our way to the Georgetown Loop Railroad, we stopped for breakfast at the Happy Cooker, and had a really nice experience. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and made sure everything was right, the food was well-prepared, very tasty and everyone had an excellent meal.

We stopped by here on a whim crossing through the Rockies, and I'm so glad that we did! My boyfriend and I split some amazing French toast that had fresh whip cream and strawberries. I then ordered the vegetarian burrito which was incredible! It had their homemade vegetarian chili with quinoa, beans, sour cream, and avocados. My boyfriend had the... More

We enjoyed the waffles yum-yum. The service was a little slow but since we weren't in a hurry it didn't matter. The coffee was great!

My first time to this (obviously for ages known) place. For a European the food was very similar to other places but the service is what makes the difference. I liked the service a lot. Thank you
