Cozy coffee place next to the lake.

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... read 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.

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.

what a wonderful surprise to stumble upon this bakery. With snowflakes still falling after a night of steady snow, I was welcomed with such a nice smile and service. The menu had it all. The warmed chocolate croissant and bagel sandwich hit the spot along with a piping hot cup of gourmet roasted coffee. The bakery has great character, great... More

Went there for lunch. It was a busy day in summer browsing stores and walking around. Lots of people everywhere. The four of us choose place because we thought we could get fast service as sign stating sti down or takeout available. Place was very full but take out system not separated from regular sit down ordering. No staff positioned... More

We stayed at the Spirit Lake Lodge and the gentlemen at the front desk recommend the cafe for a quick breakfast and a good coffee. The baked goods were fresh and the gals at the front desk were very sweet.

I was totally disgusted when I found out that this bakery uses all of its old crusty cinnemon rolls and pasteries to create new pasteries. Once the pasteries cannot be sold to customers, Candy, the owner takes these disgusting old and probably bacteria laden pasteries and re-uses them. She crushes them all up and puts them in a pitcher of... More
