Best Coffee shop in North America

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!

Great coffee and desert. Wonderful atmosphere. The decor is well done and there is an instant feel of comfort when you walk through the doors. Make sure to stop by while in town.

This place rocks! Huge comfy chairs with mountain memorabilia on the walls, the staff is very charming and helpful. The drinks are wonderful and the pastries are excellent. Try it when you're in Leadville and need a fix!

Stopped here for coffee as we were leaving town, and boy am I glad we did. The place is really cool, awesome atmosphere, friendly staff, and the coffee was excellent. Love a great local coffee shop.

I have eaten here and consumed coffee while passing through. No exception to great place, as I grabbed a coffee and resisted the temptation for some carbs. Service is excellent and friendly as always.

This is a great place to take a break from Colorado driving. We had lunch here: wonderful ham with cheese, chips, and a great drink. The atmosphere was very casual with many young people "working from home" on the day of our visit. Restroom facilities were very clean. The staff behind the counter was very friendly and warm.
