We stopped in as we were passing through, Had some good coffee, and nice lady from Juneau Alaska, asked if she could sit with us. We were there during the LT 100 mountain bike race so the place was pretty busy. But service was still sufficiently prompt, and friendly. Coffee was a yummy break during a long drive. Take a... More

On our way through Leadville we stopped at this place for a quick bite to eat. The place was PACKED (there was a mountain bike race the next day, so not sure how this compares to the average day). We were a little past lunch hours (sandwiches stop at 3pm) but they had some pre-made ones behind the counter still... More

We only had the coffee here, but loved it. Very strong and flavorful, exactly what was needed! I also loved the design of their packaging, so I picked up a few bags of whole bean as gifts.

We went here for lunch. It was packed and very popular. Ordering takes a bit but was worth it. We loved everything we ordered and they made the best chai tea latte I have ever had! The place was very cozy and warm. Great atmosphere and great food. Prices were moderate. It is worth the wait if they are full.... More

Very cute place. We went here 2 mornings in a row while camping near Leadville. Good coffee, chai tea, breakfast quiche, and pastries.

This coffee shop has a somewhat limited menu beyond pastries and very limited seating. Because of the free wifi, most patrons were ordering just a drink and then occupying the seats for a long time. Made it challenging for eating lunch. We found a sofa and ate in our laps. My berry salad was excellent. Only a couple of seats... More

Classic coffeehouse atmosphere. Wonderful bakery goods such as the banana walnut bread. Great place to pick up a freshly made sandwich for your lunch.

I may be a little biased because I love Leadville. Great ambience, local art, awesome coffee, great breakfast burritos, croissants. We come here every time we are in Leadville. Always one of the highlights of our trip!

This coffee shop has character. Situated in an old building, it's a local hangout -- not just a tourist spot. We ate mini quiches -- a veggie one and a ham-and-swiss -- as well as scones and muffins. Food and service were both excellent, as was the architecture: brick interior wall, high ceilings, and fun decor.
