We pass through Silverthorne about once a month and we always stop to eat here. The food is always great and the service is fast and most important friendly. I have other family and friends hooked.

I love going to Mountain Lion Café for breakfast or lunch. The eggs benedict is my favorite! This is a great locally owned restaurant and a favorite for Summit County locals. But if you are traveling from out of town this, this is a great place to come across for breakfast or lunch.

We were commenting on what must be strict building codes when we came across the Mountain Lyon-not what we'd been seeing. It was a little loud but had an atmosphere of fun and friendliness. The food was good and plentiful...as good a french dip sandwich as ever I had said my husband.

Driving through Silverthorne, co it became clear based on the car load that Mtn Lion Cafe was worth consideration. Tasty food included a Phat Wrap and Southwestern chix sandwich. Homemade peach cobbler and cinnamon roll to go to finish it off. Facility is run down with carpet that may be from 1950. Worth the stop for lunch or bfast

The Mountain Lyon is about as down home a you can get for breakfast and lunch. Nothing fancy here, from the half dead hanging plants to the odd knick-knacks on the walls in the odd yellow and purple building in a gravel lot. . However, the food is fresh, wholesome, good and inexpensive. The wait staff is efficient and competent.... More

Breakfast is tasty and fast. It's a no frills local diner. More locals eat here than toursits. It gets very crowded in the mornings. Go really early or really late.

This is an attractive diner style breakfast place, and deservedly popular. It was just what we needed to start a day of skiing. My fave was the breakfast tacos but my stepson preferred the burrito. Service was friendly and prompt. A great way to start the day.

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. Don't let the building fool you...these folks are nice and the breakfasts outstanding. Service was very personable and quick. Enough said...try it...you won't regret it!
