Love the coffee, love the pastry

We stopped here on a Wednesday morning before we headed for the Sand Dunes for a few days of camping. It was before 7 am and it wasn't busy. We had a scone, a pecan roll and a burrito. All were delish. The coffee is good flavor and the team members are friendly. This may become one of our... read more

Stopped in at 8am on a Friday and the place was hopping. Pleasant staff, the line moved very quickly. I got the brew of the day which is a deal at $2 (and $1 refills). Found a table in the back and used the quick WIFI. Good visit, I'd definitely go back again.

Stopped by for lunch (Usually just coffee). Had a great sandwich for a reasonable price. Not a large variety of choices, but definitely something for everyone.

We had coffee (decaf & regular), cinnamon roll and breakfast burrito ($8 in 2015). The coffee's were excellent--and hot...which is difficult at this elevation. the burrito was packed tight with a lot of goodies (we got the bacon one since they were out of chorizo). We split the burrito and roll and were quite full. The cinnamon roll, while big,... More

I am a coffee snob and wasn't expecting too much but was immensely rewarded for stopping here. They know their coffees and how to roast it. Certainly the best cup I had in Colorado, though I only tried 20 or so places across the state. I rank these guys right up there with Vivace in Seattle or Blue Bottle in... More

Stopped in for a coffee break. A pleasant enough place with friendly wait staff. Decaf cappuccino was blah without much coffee taste. not worth the money.

I always stop here when I am going through Leadville. I am not a coffee drinker, but the food is wonderful as is the hot chocolate.

We love the town of Leadville and we love this coffee shop. I enjoy a mile walk from our mountain home and cannot wait to sit in this place. Today I am enjoying a cold brew, DELISH. I love to sit and listen to the locals and people who come to this place from afar. This is one of my... More

The sandwiches (which cost $9) were about two inches by two inches and not very filling. They tasted fine but we felt a bit jipped. Especially since the side 'salad' consisted of a few leaves, nothing more. The coffee and atmosphere were good.
