Stopped in for a late breakfast and the place was pretty packed. Nevertheless, we were seated pretty fast. The food is very good and plentiful, especially the breakfasts. Seems to be a locals choice. Nice little place.

Seems to be LOCAL FAVORITE, and usually quite busy, but even so our wait wasn't long and definitely worth it. Portions are large, service was great. We've been skiing in Summit County for 12 years and there are few restaurants that stand out. This is one of them.

Stopped here for breakfast, portions were huge and the service was super quick. Not much to look at but the food was served hot and very tasty.

I ordered a Cobb salad that came with fried eggs on top! Not sure if the menu mentioned that, but how strange would that be anyway. I also had the business end of a carrot in my salad and some sort of burned mystery meat. The server never checked back with us after she delivered the food (I didn't notice... More

Looked for a place to eat and found the parking lot full at Mountain Lyon Cafe. Decided to give it a try. The parking lot needs to be resurfed and the steps (only two) to the door did not have a railing. The furnishings were tacky. The staff were attentive. Our meals were good. We had plenty to eat and... More

We have eaten at this local cafe several times and thoroughly enjoyed our food. On this return, I had eggs benedict and I am sure that the Hollandaise came out of a package. The home fries were fresh and good but the eggs were not. My husband had fried eggs, hashbrowns (which are frozen) and pancakes. He even found the... More

Stopped here for breakfeast on our last day in town. This place was PACKED. But even with a line of people waiting we got in rather quickly. We sat without a server for a little longer than normal, but I chalked that up to how many patrons were there. And the server when she got to us was so nice.... More

Although the building, out and in, appear as nothing spectacular, the food is. We went for breakfast and it was delicious. The amount of food is large. Serve is good. Would come back.

My sister and I were on a weekend road trip and stopped at the Mountain Lyon Café on our way through. We were seated right away and the waitress promptly took our order. Our food was served quickly, hot, and was a very generous portion. I especially loved the homemade biscuit! I highly recommend this place, especially if you love... More
