Down home for sure

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. .

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!

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.
