If you are looking just for a bagel or burrito breakfast sandwich and a latte this is a nice little place to go. They are open most of the day as I recall and have lunch items as well. There is Wi-Fi if that is important to you and various seating. Located near the center of town close to the... More

The deli we wanted to go was closed for winter. Not knowing where to go, we entered this cafe. It looked cozy and nice. however the food was pretty awful. We had sandwiches and cappuccino. Everything was solid mediocre. The bread for the sandwich was ultra soft, seasoning pretty bad. Not the fresh, homemade, gourmet type of cafe.

Had coffees and pastries. It would have been great to get what we ordered! Had a scone before from here and it was so good. This time I was served some sort of cake. A cinnamon roll should not cost $4 no matter where you are unless it fills the plate!

Only open for breakfast and lunch - free wi fi. Orders are taken at the counter and you can eat in or take out. Many locals came in which for me is always a good sign. The bakery is actually down a side street behind a bistro, while the sign hangs out front. Just walk around the corner towards the... More

We were in Grand Lake for lunch, asked a local shop keeper for a lunch suggestion. Were told Fat Cat or Blue Water Bakery. Fat Cat was closed for lunch - after Labor Day - so we went to Blue Water. Food was OK, but felt $10 was too high for just a sandwich when you order at a counter,... More

Lovely bakery with oodles of beautiful offerings. I can see why this place is extremely full for breakfast! Had great variety and the best coffee. Came back later to buy a sandwich for our hike the next day and it was gigantic! Will come back to this cafe when visiting Grand Lake next time.

Only went in for ice cream. Stood at the counter for at least 5 minutes and the staff acted like I was invisible. Finally a very unfriendly teenage girl with attitude (I'm being very nice with my words here) took our order. She then proceeded to scoop our ice cream, mine was first. She grabbed the scooper with her bare... More

Pretty mediocre food for lunch. Service satisfactory but not too engaged in helping. Our sandwiches looked good but the taste was not there. Size was there. The flatbread used on mine was tasteless. We had eyed some bakery treats to take home but decided to skip them. Order from the counter and listen for your name to be called. Not... More

We chose this place for lunch because it was busy. It's a "DIY" place and the staff is not very enthusiastic, maybe because it was Sunday. The menu had varied sandwiches and stuff, but the blackboards were a little confusing. The girl taking our order explained everything but with a "can't you read?" attitude. The 1/2 sandwich and cup of... More
