Would love to rate this little establishment higher, but the insane system of ordering online, ordering while present in the cafe, and eventually receiving your order…has no order! Completely disorganized process. However, the croissants were quite good.

Great americano and smoothie. Good selection of sweets and savouries to have with your drinks. Full food menu to. Staff can get easily distracted with chatting to their mates and locals. I had to chase for my americano, they hadn’t put the order through to...the barista, even though they charged for it and I was not the only one we saw with problems with their orders when we were there. Bit pricey for what we had as well but it is a resort area.More

I love this place. It's half a block off Main St. with some outdoor seating, cozy inside, and has delicious baked treats they make in-house and a friendly staff. What more could you want? Don't miss the strawberry pop tarts! They have all kinds of...hot and cold drinks (including alcohol). I had a vanilla blackberry latte that was honestly the best latte I've ever had! It has a friendly community vibe. Nice place to hang out.More

I love Cool River and frequent it any time we are in Breckenridge, which is often! It is easily the best coffee in Breckenridge and all of Summit County. Friendly service, amazing coffee and delicious breakfast tacos.

We found this lovely coffee shop by accident on our first trip to Breckenridge. It's not directly on main st. but off to the side. They were definitely busy but the service was pleasant, the coffees lovely and the pastries yummy. Another couple raved about...the chicken salad and chicken quesadilas so we'll have make a return trip.More

This was a favorite spot during our 2 week vacation in Breckinridge. Fun place to be, inside or out and the staff was always friendly. Enjoyed the coffees, teas, and baked foods. Good location and just an overall nice place to be. The ladies loved...the summer garden scene.More

I stopped here for breakfast while exploring Breckenridge. The breakfast sandwich was good and the coffee was very hot, but could have been sweeter. I liked the outdoor dining option, as it was a beautiful morning. A few things I didn’t like: there’s a menu...on the wall, but it doesn’t include everything, so you need to also check the one on the counter. They don’t put a sleeve on your cup, so you have to search for that (I just used a napkin). They call your name for the food order, but I couldn’t understand the person delivering the food, I’m pretty sure he had my name wrong. Finally, one of the baristas seemed more interested in chatting with his friends than making drinks. Not an awful experience, but there’s room for improvement.More

Good service and the tea was freshly brewed. Right off the main street with a nice shady area to rest in outside of the business.

So it's a coffee shop first and foremost I suppose and as such the coffee was good (I had a Latte so nothing too fancy). The breakfast sandwich I had was awful, however. I ordered an everything bagel with egg, bacon and white cheddar (the...only cheese they had). But the Bagel was very old and almost stale to the point that I could barely chew through the edges. I wasn't able to detect any cheese but maybe it was there. Super dry sandwich. So to be fair I probably was unlucky with my choice. Maybe the Croissant or Burrito would have been a better option (given other reviews). I'd have coffee from here again but not breakfast. A disappointing experience for sure but 3 stars based on the coffee.More

Cool River is my favorite breakfast place no matter what I order, but I could eat the Chorizo Burrito everyday! Nicest staff, great service and amazing food. Awesome back patio to enjoy your breakfast or lunch!

Right on the river, this was a delightful place to order coffee. You couldn't enter the building due to COVID restrictions, but they took orders at the door and had a quick turnaround time with their full menu still available. We both ordered the suggested...special - Mocha Blanca (ice cream, espresso, white chocolate and milk) and it was delightful. Beautiful area if you have dogs or want to sit outside.More

Our family picked up a takeout breakfast here and were thoroughly impressed. We ordered a few different things and all enjoyed them. Two people had veggie bowls (subbing sweet potatoes was yummy), another had meat bowl and another a smoothie bowl. Pick up was easy...and there was a nice place to eat outside as well.More
