Friendly owner with nice atmosphere. Multiple seating options with indoor tables, outdoor tables & even a counter where people sit & talk. The pastries are out of this world!! Coffee is just average, but we keep going back when we visit Breck.

This coffee shop is long on friendliness, good simple food, and coffee. We love the quiet off street environment. The only thing we do not like is the hours. We wish they were open earlier in the morning and later in the evening.

I love this place! The people who work there are unfailingly nice, the coffee selection is great and the food is always wonderful. I love sitting outside on the grass by the Blue River, eating my breakfast while gazing at the Rockies. You can't go wrong eating here!

We have been coming here for 14 years and this place never disappoints. Great coffee with a free refill and a wide variety of bagels, cream cheeses, pastries and sandwiches. They also offer specialty drinks. Outdoor seating makes it nice this time of year and during the summer.

It was late afternoon when we were looking for a coffee shop. The Cool River coffee shop was closing up but they said they would be happy to serve us when we said we just wanted chai lattes. We sat outside looking up at the mountains with the sun on our faces. A perfect stop for a drink. The inside... More

This place is great for most people, we sued to visit on past trips and we all loved the place. On this occasion as I am coeliac I was advised that the only gluten free option was a quiche, it was nice but very limited. The others in my party said they really liked their options, just not great for... More

The breakfast burritos are amazing. Best Green Chili in Summit county. Sometimes the service can take a few extra minutes. I think they're making each breakfast item custom in the kitchen - but worth the wait for fresh, hot, awesome breakfast. The baked goods are incredible. Good coffee, latte, etc. In summer we like to sit outside, listen to the... More

Small coffee shop with a great menu. I ended up ordering hot apple cider and Lani had hot tea. Both were excellent. Fun ambiance but they close at 4pm so hard to understand the logic of a coffee shop that closes just as everyone comes off the mountain
