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

These were actually some of our favorite sandwiches ever!! We LOVED the Turkey Bacon Melt. The ingredients were so real and fresh. We loved it so much, we went back more than once! We enjoyed sitting outside by the heaters for a fantastic lunch!

My wife son and I stopped in for breakfast on our weekend trip to Breckenridge. It was only outside seating due to COVID restrictions, but the weather was great and we preferred to sit outside. I had a breakfast sandwich, croissant with egg, cheese and...bacon. It was good. We all had bloody mary's which were good and spicy. It is right in the middle of Breckenridge on Main St so it is very convenient. I would go back when I'm in the area.More

My wife and I came here for breakfast. We're both vegans for ethical reasons so we ordered their options without meat, eggs, and dairy. Despite their online order confirmation ensuring our order would take ten to twenty minutes, it took about forty minutes. Turns our,...it had just been sitting inside. When we finally sat down to eat, I discovered raw bacon in my wrap. So apart from being disgusted with this piece of bacon I unknowingly ingested, I also have to fear contracting a parasite infection. Most common and notorious one being trichinellosis. So even if you eat bacon, you need to be vigilante when eating here as they may not be thoroughly cooking their meats. When I informed the owner, Diane Buriss, she apologized then went straight into defending her business principles. None of it was relevant to what I had expressed concerning my beliefs as a vegan. How I felt disgusted by this shred of meat I bit into. She ultimately only expressed concern over her business and not my beliefs. I finally just asked for a refund. She agreed. She later comes out with a ten dollar bill for the burrito. I declined it and demanded a full refund for the meal and drinks. Diane then became unhinged and went into the exact same speech from earlier about the principles her business adhere to. She still was not showing any understanding or empathy towards us the customer. After hearing all of her nonsense, it was clear her business principles don't include quality customer service. Diane eventually just threw her hands up and said "whatever, I don't care!" She left, then later popped her head out and told she refunded our meal. My wife left a review for the cafe. Dianne Burris replies with a completely absurd and unprofessional reaction. Even stated that "maybe your company is what made you feel sick". Company being myself. I never once disrespected Dianne, but she clearly only thought about herself during the whole exchange blinding her from sincere customer satisfaction. If you eat here (which I do not recommend) break your order down to them entirely and check it thoroughly before eating whether you're vegan or not. I pray I don't get a parasitic infection, because that would mean a second interaction with Dianne Burris.More

New management since we were last here, and the decor has been updated. Following a ski accident, this place became a regular haunt for me while my buddies skied. Excellent cappuccino, enormous, delicious cakes, and healthy , tasty salads. Vegan, vegetarian, and other free-from options...are plentiful and recycling is encouraged. The staff were friendly and clientele covered all ages. I will be back on my return to Breckenridge, if it can survive the early closure of the ski resort this year.More
