Our favorite local breakfast spot

We enjoy breakfast here whenever we are in the area. Good options for our whole family from crispy pancakes to tasty corned beef hash and breakfast burritos. It can get crowded on the weekends, but during the week we have never encountered a long wait. Service is friendly and not intrusive.

Don't go to the Mountain Lyon expecting high-brow, fancy food, with exquisite decor. Instead, you will be treated to great service, great value (especially for the location), and the best breakfast around - all in a comfortable, family setting. My wife had the fruit plate which was fresh and flavorful. I had the breakfast burrito, stuffed with chorizo, breakfast sausage... More

Traveling Dillion, found a nail in my tire. Took car to Hudsons a local dealer. Asked for a good place for lunch and they recommended Mointain. This made a bad experience much easer to bear. Food is really home made. Split pea soup excellent. Try their home made potato chips. French fries come in second. This is a great stop.

Without question Mountain Lyon Cafe is my new little down home Silverton country hangout! Chicken fried steak and eggs smothered in homemade green chili, but the green chili has brownish gravy spin on it and it's AMAZING!!! They don't only offer breakfast on the menu and I'm pretty sure no matter what you order you'll be happy with your choice!

Homey rustic mountain restaurant with cheery servers to make your morning. Food was bountiful and good. Menu is varied and food was good.

I had a cheeseburger with homemade bbq sauce. Best burger I've had in a long time if ever comes with homemade French fries. Also had some green chili it was very good as well. If you are looking for good home cooked food this is the place to go

We lived in Summit Co. when it opened 25 years ago and it was great then as it is now returning as a "tourist" to join friends. Good rib-stickin food and great service. We had a party of 12 over 3 tables and were served in a timely fashion even though the place was packed. Chicken fried steak, corned beef... More
