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.

This is a nice, clean coffee shop with breakfast options, great coffee choices, and an upbeat atmosphere. I had the mochas and also purchased some ground coffee. Hours are good as they open at 6am. I appreciate that as I get going early and that helps a lot to start the day of hiking, rafting, running, fishing, whatever you are... More

Every small town should have a place like this. Clean, friendly, and comfortable with tasty offerings. Great spot for people watching, as all sorts of folks frequent this place. The muffins are delicious!

I stop here regularly (10 - 12 x a year) on my travels through Leadville. In fact, more times than anyplace else in town. It just draws you in. The expresso is always excellent and the service friendly. There is a large selection of bakery items, almost all oversized, so you don't go away hungry. Excellent chocolate pastries! The atmosphere... More

Locally roasted bean for a great cup of coffee. Also offers breakfast and lunch items. Quick service and great food. Grab a cup and enjoy the free Wi-Fi or just sit back and enjoy conversation with friends (old and new)
