Ver casual, modest prices, very kid friendly

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... read more

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.

Stopped in for something cool to drink on a warm afternoon. The iced chai tea latte was spicy and tasty. The pomegranate green tea was refreshing as well. Liked it so much we went back the next morning for coffee to get our day started.

During my short stay in Golden I visited Windy Saddle twice. I like the sidewalk seating and waited almost 20 minutes for a breakfast sandwich which the manager apologized for and offered a free pastry for the inconvenience which was very nice. On my second visit I ordered a sandwich which I ate there and then a tuna salad to... More

We are sorry to hear you were put off by the raisins in our tuna salad. It comes pre-mixed with raisins directly from our supplier and so it's not something we add. Usually we are getting rave reviews about our tuna salad. We are sorry that the salad didn't contain the cucumbers. We'll talk to our staff to be more... More

Good place for a quick casual bite for breakfast or lunch. You order at the counter and sit where you'd like. I had a savory ham scone and it was quite good. They have some baked goods, quiche and breakfast sandwiches/burritos. I have to say though that the bathroom could have been cleaner. I am not sure if it is... More

Good variety of coffee drinks and sandwiches and sweets - some gluten free too! Great place to hang out and relax with friends or work on your computer. There is a small play area in back for children. Special events such as Golden Talks, Music and Downtown Golden Days can be celebrated here too. Sidewalk seating is also available.

We stopped here for a quick lunch and thought it was good. It's a funky cafe with old furniture and a play area in back for kids. Sandwiches were available with gluten free bread from a local bakery. Vegetarian options were also available. There was also outside dining on the street.

Simple homemade food. Great ambiance with a bit of casual mess. Just loved it! Had a beautiful quiche look and spicy chili sauce on a good veggie burito.

We had The Thunderbird & the Reuben! We loved the Thunderbird - turkey sandwich with avocado on hoagie! A little slow but very tasty!
