Have eaten here a few times, Morning rush is a long line. Staff is very rude, and expect a tip for reluctantly taking an order. If you are not a local, then good luck getting a smile or a friendly interaction. The food is good, bagels and cream cheese with lox is not bad. Don't ask to have your bagel... More

We stopped by Blue Water Bakery for lunch with our friends. It was good value and they had tasty food. I really enjoyed their Italian Chicken hot sandwich. They have a small deck outside with a narrow but nice lake view.

Fresh baked scones, muffins, crescents, and cookies to go with the coffee or tea of your choice. The blueberry muffins were tops. There are also several small bookcases of for the customer to read on rainy afternoons. Near the beach.

Coffee was fine. But the baked goods were dry and tasteless like 2-day old. Each of the items tasted like they were made from Bisquick and they were really pricey.

I had the oriental salmon salad. Priced so well I was totally shocked at the flavor. Husband had the chicken caesar salad and cleaned his plate!

Went for an early morning drive up the Rocky Mountain National Park road and stopped for a latte and breakfast sandwich. Latte was good, sandwich was amazing! I got the smoked salmon with capers, spinach, tomatoes, on a tomato basil bagel. Service was at the counter and decent.

We ate breakfast here on our way out of Rocky Mountain National Park. The food was delicious (try the vaquero scramble!) Grand Lake is a refreshing change of pace from the crowds and parking drama of Estes Park.

When you want a quick, no nonsense breakfast that you can taylor to the amount you want, and what you want, this is a good place to go. I particularly liked the various granola/fruit/yogurt for a healthy breakfast. Although the amount was more than I normally would eat. Their bagals are different, and the way they prepare them is unique.... More

My husband and I were excited to enjoy a late lunch at this cute bakery cafe after a long drive and our first time to Grand Lake. We were in town celebrating our anniversary. The lady at the counter was extremely rude to us before we were even able to make our lunch order. She said, "You better make your... More
