Comfortable coffee shop atmosphere is perfect even for the noncoffee drinker with a tempting bakery display of treats and free Wi-Fi. We opted for the turkey, provolone, and pesto on ciabatta that was delicious with just the right amount of toasting to melt the cheese and enhance the flavors in the bread. We planned to go back for a scone,... More

We are travelling (from Australia) and are keen coffee drinkers. The coffee in this cafe was just so good we went back for another coffee. It's very hard to find a place that makes a coffee that we like, but we found it in Leadville Co. The sandwiches which we had were very nice.

I enjoyed the environment and staff was friendly so I overall had a good time. We bought coffees and breakfast burritos. Coffee was really great. Food was so-so. Sat by the window and watched the people pass by the main drag. A fun time.

We waited for at least 20 minutes for our to-go club sandwich and chips, but enjoyed our coffee and friendly table mates while we waited. Nice to have wifi to plan the next stop and were impressed that the chips were separately packed in a little lunch bag for us. Only regret was not getting some of the fresh baked... More

Wonderfully strong, real coffee. The atmosphere is serene and hip for such a small town. The spinach and feta croissant was also excellent.

Nice coffee shop in the center of Leadville. Good espresso, friendly staff. Not much else to say, it's just a coffee shop after all.

We love City on a Hill! The owners have taken great care to create a welcoming coffee shop that offers excellent coffee (the best for miles around - we buy it to bring it home!). It is clean, has wifi, lots of tables, books for kids to read, some community games available (chess board), plus comfy couches. Great hours -... More

Quaint, good service, nice food, good vibes, good location. They also have a local bulletin board and local artwork. Reasonable prices and gluten free options. I always stop in here when I'm in Leadville!

Great little coffee spot that has fresh roasted coffee and delicious baked goods. You can also have lunch. Relaxed seating and a no rush atmosphere - a perfect place to regroup, read or check emails while enjoying some real good fresh roasted coffee.
