Great local place for breakfast/lunch

Best place for breakfast in Silverthrone. But expect a wait for seating most days....but worth the wait. Great big hearty breakfast.

We love the Mountain Lyon Cafe was a filling and delicious breakfast. It can be a bit cold in the winter- but absolutely worth it. They offer a number of Tex-mex breakfast options - that are all exceptional. It is a very comfortable place to enjoy breakfast.

The other positive reviews nail it. Great service, excellent food. My wife had the corned beef hash and said it was one of the better ones she's had. I had the Mountain Cakes, a trio of pancakes including blueberry, banana and Swiss. One wouldn't think that Swiss cheese on a pancake would be good but it really is!

This place is crazy in the morning. The food is good and people know it. They crank them in and out. You don't wait to long for seating or your food once you order. However this time was a little different. We were seated and there was a few empty tables. It took a while to order then food came... More

The food is excellent. The location is right off I-70. The staff is friendly and the service is prompt. It's always been busy when we've visited but the staff is so coordinated and experienced that they get you in and out fairly easily. Be sure to sign yourself up on the waiting list instead of waiting for someone to do... More

We stopped in for a bite to eat at this quaint dinner with the 50's aroma decor. Nothing fancy, but the parking lot was busy with most the spots full of cars. I thought there must be something to this. The food and service is excellent I would recommend to any traveler going through Silverthorne Co. to stop in and... More

We actually changed our whole days schedule to have breakfast at the Mountain Lyon. The breakfast was great, the coffee kept coming, and the waitresses were friendly. No pretense just a very good way to start the day. Healthy and not so healthy options available.
