Stopped in for bread to go and walked out with a ton of amazing baked goods. The fruit empanadas are to die for, the cookies are the best I have ever had. The chili cheese bread is a must have if you are within 100 miles of here.

As a native Burqueño, I've been here for several years and can't seem to break the habit. They have excellent baristas, delicious baked goods, and highly addictive pizza.

We read the reviews and we're not disappointed. Loved the free cookie when placing the order and as a pleasant surprise when our pizza arrived! We were hungry after a day of travel in the car and went for dinner with the young kids. The good was amazing. Had one pizza with Canadian bacon, and another with the special Green... More

I gave Golden Crown a 4 instead of a 5 because when we ordered our Veggie Pizza (which was good but not outstanding pizza) we were totally bummed out when we were told they were out of their special green chili pizza dough for the crust. It was 12:30 on a Wednesday so we couldn't believe they didn't have this... More

Loved it from the moment we walked through the door. Took a ton of bread home with us. We are now enjoying breads and cookies we brought home with us.

This place understands what quality truly means. It's the food, it's the service, it's the character. Golden Crown has all of this. Chris the owner is amazing. He excels at making the customer happy from the moment you walk in until you cart your now full tummy to your vehicle. The Green Chili pizza pie is amazing. The coffee will... More

We came here just stopping by after Old town for some bakery goods on our way home. Staff are very welcoming with complimentary biscochito (made with some blue corn!) offered while you look around and decide. We chose a warm out-of-the-oven Chile bread and 2 empanadas (sweet potato and apple). The Chile bread is huge and had a lot of... More

Guy Fieri was here apparently, didn't know that going in. Got empanadas (peach & sweet potato) for breakfast, then a ham/cheese baget for lunch (asked them to butter the bread & it was very close to a jambon/frumage in France). They bake their own breads, etc... outstanding! We will go there again! Saw it was crowded during dinner on a... More

Fun & unique place to eat. Traveling thru and found it on this app. Greeted with cookies for our group. Loved the veggie pizza, very fresh veggies on whole wheat crust. Had an iced vanilla chai to go and it was so good!
