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

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!
