We go here for the bakery as well as the coffee. Love to have a sweet rolls. Nice to sit on the boardwalk in the sun in front and watch the locals and visitors come and go. We make i a point to come here when we are in town.

No Starbucks within 60 miles and I was needy. Went in as a last resort, not expecting much. Well I was wrong! Nicest girls (think they were Russian college kids) working made it exactly like I like it. Came back in an hour, brought my wife, did that order again! Tipped those girls like I won the lottery.

fast food ordering style but the menu options are more like sit down ordering restaurants. Very good food and fun dining area with the different table setup's and sayings on the wall. There is even a book borrowing boat in the dining area. Love this place!

Sit outside overlooking the lake and eat an amazing breakfast. The scrambles are delicious and the salmon benedict was a perfect way to start the day. I didn't have any of the baked goods, but they look phenomenal and are huge! Staff is friendly and the prices are right - don't miss this when you visit Grand Lake!

OMG, stuffed french toast was fabulous with fresh berry sauce for dipping. Always excellent coffee, good bakery items and good choices. Slow service goes along with a small tourist town, but who cares when the result is yum!

We stopped in this cute little bakery on a whim. We were visiting Grand Lake for the day and were hungry for something that wasn't greasy. This is a perfect location with outside seating that looks out over the lake, so we picked a table and ordered. We waited QUITE a while for our sandwiches, but once we got them... More

There were lots of coffee choices. The coffee shop was open longer than the restaurant. I had a scone and coffee cake from the bakery. Both were good but not great. The restaurant closes at two or three with the bakery open longer.

You can do better! The pastries were SO under par. The croissants were dry; the chocolate inside the pastries was hard and tasteless. The apple pastry was just bad. Not good. I was almost surprised that such a cute place with a great location could turn out such poor quality pastries. No returning for us!

The veggie wrap was delicious as was the potatoes with fresh herbs. Great service and coffee, too! Outdoor seating was nice with the sun and shade options.

This is the best place in town for breakfast. Always quick so if you're looking for a place to grab something before a hike or to take on a walk along the lake this is the one! Bagel sandwiches, and skillet bowls are superb and their coffee hits the spot on a cold morning!
