Great location to get a coffee/have breakfast

We were on a road trip and stopped here for breakfast: great breakfast burritos and baked goods! Everything made with love for the detail, but still not overpriced. The coffee was really good. I highly recommend to stop here!

We stayed in Leadville over night and the motel owner where we stayed recommended. In fairness, let me say, I used to own a coffee shop so I'm an official coffee snob. Coffee was good. I just had straight up, black coffee. The atmosphere was great. Cute, cute place. In the middle of downtown and just what you would expect... More

We originally walked into town to have ice cream but were disappointed to find that the ice cream shop wasn't open at 4pm on a Saturday!! So we decided to stop in to City on a Hill Coffee shop and have a coffee and a sweet treat instead. We weren't disappointed! It's a cute shop in a historic building, so... More

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!
