An over the top breakfast!

Had visited here last year by chance and had a great experience so we decided to revisit. Still the breakfast in town as far as I'm concern.

Ample portions, well prepared, very earthy, down to earth atmosphere. We have a place a mile away and love to go here. Our latest thing is to order one portion of the chorizo breakfast tacos, and split it .... breakfast in bed with view of the mountains. Doesn't get any better!

We had been standing in 3 feet of snow. For an hour for a family photo session. We were frozen solid and needed to eat and warm up in a blink. We drove past the Mountain Lyon Cafe. Did a U turn and were inside within a few minutes. It was just what we needed. The drinks were served in... More

Really good diner type place. Had the Florentine Benedict. My wife had a Cobb salad. Both were very good. Good service and good coffee. Watch out on Sundays. There can be a line.

We've enjoyed many-a-breakfasts at this establishment throughout the years. Hearty, homemade meals. The happy face pancakes are always a hit for the kiddos. This place is always busy, so plan ahead:)

Our son lives in the Denver area and we decided to visit Aspen one day. We stopped for breakfast at Mountain Lyon Cafe. What a great choice. I love breakfast and the menu had an excellent selection. I tried one of the skillet dishes. Our son had a Mexican breakfast and my wife had scrambled eggs. All were excellent with... More

Have been eating breakfast here for many many years. Now with my children. They love the face cakes and my favorite is the ultimate skillet. So much food. Long term staff is always great.

I've had many good breakfasts here, but the breakfast tacos are really good. A lot of food, so you can order just one and it's plenty. My hubby and I have split an order to go on a late run to the slopes, fantastic! Such a great, local, mountain scene, with friendly low key waitstaff. Two miles from our condo,... More
