Excellent breakfast place

We ate breakfast here all week. The food was really good. They have free Wifi and many locals also seem to eat here. A nice place to enjoy some morning coffee and they gave one free refill!

We enjoyed breakfast here during our stay in Grand Lake. The breakfast bagel, and waffle were very tasty. We did have some difficulty ordering, as the girls, while friendly, don't speak or understand English very well.

Really good breakfast. Interesting atmosphere and close to the lake. Another restaurant was closed, so we went around the corner to this place. We were not disappointed. Lots of yummy baked goods, too.

Great breakfast and snack selections. The pastries are wonderful, and there are also healthy choices like oatmeal or granola with fruit as well as more varied fare. Great tea selections also. A couple sidewalk tables have a view of the lake, and there is an small used book library by the indoor tables. The staff is very friendly and recognized... More

We went here for lunch. We had to wait 30 minutes for our sandwhiches but I can see why. They were great. Highly recommend anything on a croissant. Not for someone in a rush

Not the best experience. Seemed to be the only place open for breakfast. Order and then wait for 30 minutes. Very busy. No decaffeinated coffee was strange for a coffee place. Then after ordered the coffee gets put on a shelf no name and everyone elses order is also there ....so confusing. The area to fix coffee had run out... More

Chose this place based on reviews, was not very impressed. The breakfast were pretty good pastries were overly sweet. I feel it's important to let you all know that the food is served on plastic plates, with plastic forks. On this particular day no one working there seem happy at all. It was pretty striking.

Good food but be prepared to wait for your drinks and food if you go in the early morning as they are busy.

Every morning of the week my husband and I spent in Grand Lake during July 2015, we would get up early and go next door to the Blue Water Bakery Café for breakfast. The food was fabulous! There was always a small crowd but well worth standing in line for!!
