Cute place, ok food but nothing to write home about. Would have liked fries or chips with the sandwich. A little spend for what you get.

Not sure about the service as I was here during an off-meal time. Sandwich options are varied and delicious. Love the pickles:)

We visited this cafe on a day trip to Golden. The sandwiches were awesome, I had the turkey with avocado, my husband had the Italian Stallion. He had coffee which he said was good, strong and hot. I ordered a lemonade, which was, alas, country time lemonade mix. The service at the counter when we ordered was good, however back... More

Referred here by our bartender at The Golden Hotel, went for breakfast with our daughter and her friend, who is a gluten-free vegan. This place was great for her and for all of us. Delishhhh!!! Great atmosphere (though I don't think they planted the husky sitting with his owners at one of the tables outside), reasonably priced, and great variety... More

Pick your own table, and order at the counter. Every coffee drink you could want, but also sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Hummus salad and gyro salad come on a plate with a small serving of dressing, so ask for a bowl if you want to mix the salad and dressing. Right in the middle of downtown Golden and right under...

I ate there twice while visiting Golden. Breakfast sandwich was good and so was turkey sandwich I ordered. The Pom ice tea was also great.

Firstly, we liked the name, sort of like from the film Blazing Saddles. We come here periodically for coffee & pastries, both of which are really good. The staff is friendly, prices pretty reasonable. Lots of places to sit. Not too fancy, which suits us fine. Highly recommended.
