Being across the street from the museum, this place had a great vegetarian options (we had a squash lasagna) as well as a great bacon-covered mac and cheese served on a piping hot iron skillet. Interesting selection of iced teas, great decor and interesting layout (a neat loft area for a few tables upstairs along with a kids play nook... More

Went there for lunch with my 11 year old son. Their kids menu is very limited and he did not like the Mac and cheese, my ham and Montina cheese sandwich was excellent and they have great beer selection. I did not enjoy my Doppio macchiato , over roasted coffee. It has a very interesting bakery and the location just... More

Finally had the chance to try this delightful cafe, after having driven by it many times. The food is really good, well-prepared, and features top-flight ingredients. Their deserts are out of this world. Seriously enjoyed the 8 or 10 iced teas that they have "on tap." The outside patio area suffers from traffic noise, but the view of the mountains... More

We have been to this restaurant numerous times, we tend to go at lunch since we work in the area. There is always new staff, and chaos. No one ever seems to know what's going on, there is a lack of management here. Every time we have been here either we get someone else's order or half of our own,... More

I come here about once a month for lunch. I would come more frequently, however it's terribly expensive. Lunch for two of us today was $45. On the other hand, you are paying for delicious, high quality food. My boyfriend had the "chop chop" salad and I had the "free bird panini" on GF focaccia bread. His salad was awesome.... More

As a first time visitor, the front counter person gave wrong instruction. Manager attempted to discount event by saying it provided a 'training experience'. Water glass wasn't refilled. No one checked in to see if everything was satisfactory. No signage for where to enter patio. Their drive-thru is located next to patio; grew tired of hearing car engines and smelling... More

Loved this place! We had great coffee and some nice salads here. Also, some good local beers. It's well worth a visit for a light, healthy lunch.

This place was recommended by a family member who loved the Huevos Rancheros. I don't order this dish often but the power of suggestion had me all excited about having this dish which I ordered. It came out as a kind of casserole with everything kind of mixed together including too much sauce. It tasted like a bad enchilada. The... More

We had noticed this cheerful-looking cafe while driving to the nearby Museum of the Rockies, and went there for a Friday-evening supper. We each had a salad, and were very happy with the quantity and quality, particularly the dressing. The music in the main area was rather intrusive, so we went to a quieter area. A silent auction of paintings... More

A friend on a gluten-free diet was visiting last week, so we decided to try Sola Café for the first time. We arrived during the lunch rush, but the service was fast AND friendly-and there were plenty of options for both of us on the menu. I love how they support local growers. We were able to find a table... More
