Consistently good.

Good service, good coffee, good bakery items and good day old items. I especially like the service which surpasses many of the Leadville hot spots as they are quick to wait on you and get you out the door ( which is the BIG difference). I have used Cookies for many work events.

You may want to stop in for the sweet baked treats, but plan to stop in every morning to try their fantastic selection of egg burritos. Sherry, the owner, custom made mine for me to my tastes while we waited. You can also get delicious bagel egg sandwiches on fresh home-made bagels.

What a great little surprise at Cookies with Altitude. Stopped in for a late lunch, and had one of the best ever (or you can "build" your own). They have a approx 12 different home made with fresh ingredients sandwiches to choose from. We ordered a Chicken Gyro and Reuben. The Chicken Gyro had a delish hot cubed fire brazed... More

Drove through Leadville to get to independent pass around 3pm looking for a late lunch and found this place. The staff are super friendly and the soup and sandwich for great for a chilly afternoon.

Stopped in here by chance and purchased one Key Lime Pie Cookie. Instead, I should have bought a dozen!

Tried to get them to come to Texas to no avail! Lemon poppyseed is out of this world good. Ginger cookies with real ginger no way! Intense chocolate! What a great way to end the day!

The lemon poppyseed, sugar cookie w/frosting, and whoopie pie and more were all amazing. Like home made — not too sweet with great flavor and texture. Also amazing were the deli sandwiches and very friendly service. If you visit Leadville, a great relic from Colorado's mining heyday, stop here for and afternoon treat.

But the cookies and pastries looked really good as well. We have been coming to Leadville for fudge for many years. There's been a change over the past five years and the fudge torch has been passed from the Mercantile to this place. There's no loss in this move. We got the Key Lime, Chocolate Strawberry, Cookies with Cream, Cherry... More

I enjoyed the cookies from Cookies with Altitude along with coffee from City on a Hill down the street. It was definitely a nice little pick-me-up following the lunch I didn't enjoy (at a different establishment). I liked the cakey iced lemon poppyseed and pumpkin cookies the best. Nice people too! We stopped in before our lunch and they had... More

Had one of the best molasses cookies of my life! Chewy, with a bit of crispy on the edges. Buttery and just enough ginger to leave your mouth tingling a bit. I just regret I only got one!
