We went for lunch and both ordered salads. My oriental chicken salad was very good and very large, but the best part of the meal was the huge piece of homemade bread, lightly toasted, with a big scoop of butter that came with it. It was probably the best bread I've ever had. I would definitely make a point of... More

While driving back to Denver we stopped for breakfast at the Happy Cooker. Wonderful people and a delicious breakfast. Quaint little town too!

We ate here on the recommendation of the mine tour guide after our Georgetown Loop Railroad ride. They serve breakfast all day and good, home-cooked meals. The place is small and could use some upkeep, but the food was good and staff was friendly. A good choice after the train ride.

We were all starved after flying in to Denver and decided to grab a bite once we got out of the city. We ended up in Georgetown by accident. The first two restaurants we wanted to stop at we're closed (on a Tuesday?) Then we found the Happy Cooker. It was a party of five and we all loved our... More

Had the European waffle. Strawberry and maple syrup. So tasty. Sat outside, made it easy for a person in a wheelchair. Friendly staff. Will go again.

Georgetown itself is an interesting place with lots of character buildings and shops, and a number of cafes and restaurants. We picked the Happy Cooker, which does a selection of meals and snacks. Chicken croissant and salad, turkey BLT, burger were all very good. A nice meal, in a pleasant and tidy setting, substantial food without being bloated. Service was... More

We had just finished the train ride and mine tour and were looking for good, cheap gluten free.. and that's exactly what we found. Our boys had gf waffles that were excellent, wife had awesome gf chili, and I, not being gluten free, had a delicious burger. Highly recommend and will return again if we can.

Ate here with a friend during a visit to Georgetown and we were very pleased by the quality and freshness of the food. The bread was outstanding! Our service was actually pretty fast, but it was a rainy day and the restaurant was not crowded. This was not a fancy restaurant, but we did enjoy a delicious meal at a... More

The food and decor was not much to write home about. I had the vegetable quiche and was not impressed. It was a little dry and I'm not crazy about large pieces of carrots and green beans in a quiche. I had the sausage, kale, potato soup and it was very good. I would go back for that again. The... More

Hi there Denise D and thank you very much for your review. I am very sorry to hear that you were not pleased with you quiche. We try to cut the vegetable pieces small enough to suite each guest, but I am very sorry that they were larger pieces than you like. As always, we are more than happy to... More

Very nice restaurant for lunch. We were seated in the patio which was very pleasant. Our server was very helpful in helping select some of their favorites to eat for lunch. The sandwiches were overstuffed and very tasty. I noticed they had quite a few inside tables for winter use. The restaurant was not very busy went we arrived but... More
