The coffee has a great taste, and the barista made a beautiful design in my latte, for an extra touch. This locally owned shop has great quiche, breakfast burritos, soup, sandwiches and bakery items as well. Beautiful works of art hang on the walls, in this very cool, locally owned, business. It is a delightful experience to visit this shop!

Yuummmm. A Leadville friend suggested we meet up at City on a Hill for lunch and we enjoyed it! Spicy Chai and tasty, hot sandwiches. Everyone liked their lunch but the Fig jam and bacon was a big hit! Also, Bethany waited on us and was friendly and timely! We'll be back!

City on A Hill offers very good roasts and great espresso drinks in a really fun and cozy mountain environment. The baked goods selection is sinfully sweet. A great spot to meet friends, and on the last occasion we stopped by there was a local High School book club meeting in the round for a literary discussion. Nice!

Hands down the best coffee in Leadville! Great roasts, good flavor, awesome Gluten Free baked goods! One dislike.....when busy they don't have the staff or equipment to keep up with the demand. Also, consistency of quality is off when they are bogged down. Go when it is not busy!

One of the coolest coffee shops you will ever visit. This is a must stop in Leadville. Very friendly staff, great coffee, eclectic ambiance. If your hungry, best breakfast in town. My favorite is the Southwest Burrito.

This is the perfect spot for your morning coffee fix before a day of skiing at Ski Cooper. Good Joe and delicious bakery items. Yum!

The cinnamon roll is amazing! I could eat it everyday. The place is packed with locals and non-locals so you know right away it's going to be aamzing!

Great coffee and desert. Wonderful atmosphere. The decor is well done and there is an instant feel of comfort when you walk through the doors. Make sure to stop by while in town.

This place rocks! Huge comfy chairs with mountain memorabilia on the walls, the staff is very charming and helpful. The drinks are wonderful and the pastries are excellent. Try it when you're in Leadville and need a fix!
