We stopped through here today for a quick to-go lunch and were initially impressed by the vibe and selection. Yet, looks were deceiving.

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.

Visited early Saturday morning and the place was packed. Their house dark roast drip was amazing! Just had coffee but next we're going to try their bacon-cheese muffin.

Stopped in with a friend on a Sunday morning, it was busy but the line moved quickly. I had the southwest breakfast burrito & a cappuccino - both were excellent! Cute place with lots of character and good coffee & eats!

We stopped there for a quick breakfast on the road. We just took coffee and pastries. The place is really comfortable to stay in and we left with some regrets ! Service was very friendly.

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!
