It took a little while to get the food, but so worth it. I had a Greek salad with freshly baked bread and it was excellent. Not too big, which I liked, but great flavor. The homemade bread was fantastic, my husband got a Dagwood sandwich on multigrain hoagie which was also delicious. The bread was excellent. Highly recommend this... More

Good homemade food in a kinda' weird ambience, but certainly much better than it appears from the outside. We would eat there again.

I almost overlooked this little gem on a recent trip to Grand Lake. So glad I decided to give it a try (twice, actually). It's a coffee house/bakery with uncommonly tasty fare. I had the turkey, cranberry, and brie sandwich on a croissant and the tomato basil soup. All delicious. The coffee is also good, the seating is cozy, the... More

I had lunch here a few days while in town and while the food was pretty good, the staff could really benefit from a bit of a service attitude. Overall, the experience was not of a rude nature, but one expects a friendly smile and welcoming attitude when they visit a restaurant or hotel.

Very nice bakery goods, apparently home made, however coffee tastes just average for us. ( we're accustom strong coffee.) You don't have a lot of choices in this area. Probably a little pricy though it's acceptable because of resort town here. Staff is very friendly and welcoming, they have comfortable chairs and relaxing atmosphere, more over outside seating should be... More

A great place for breakfast. They offer a wide variety of breakfast items from traditional meat & eggs to meatless. All cooked to order, so expect a bit of a wait. They also have baked goods and espresso drinks. And the WIFI is free to use, with password protection. Just a block from the waters of Grand Lake.

We love BWBC! We've been visiting for years and always go for their "Almond Joy Lattes". They are yummy. They have great homemade pastries (especially the blueberry scones) and good breakfast and lunches. They even have ice cream! It's a quaint little cafe with several indoor tables to kick back at and enjoy your coffee or catching up on emails... More

My daughter's mocha was excellent and my house coffee was good enough. The atmosphere was great but the apple crumb coffee cake was too sweet to eat - so very disappointing. Worth a visit for a quiet coffee.
