Really well prepared, fresh and good breakfast and lunch options. Great coffee drinks. Eclectic and unassuming interior. Delish bakery items, alway with vegan and GF options. One of my faves, esp sitting on the sidewalk patio. Located directly under the Golden arch.

Had the home made granola and yoghurt and wife had a smoothie. Coffee was very good, service was quick and there was a really nice atmosphere.

Great atmosphere to study, meet friends or colleagues, or relax after a run or hike - great selection of gluten free items. Dirty Chai is consistently delicious.

The atmosphere was great. I liked how it was open. My fiancé had a breakfast burrito and I had an omelette. Both were delicious! I had a latte with 3 shots of espresso, definitely the pick me up I needed. I highly recommend! The service was great as well.

It was nice getting a well made espresso in Golden. The Windy Saddle is a funky coffee shop that serves up salads, smoothies and other good looking food.

I enjoy going there and the service has always been good, but the GF selections can be dry and hard. The coffee can be great or okay depending on who's there. Like sitting outside.

Found this place by accident while hunting for the quilt shop. Since we had our dog with us, needed lunch and needed WiFi....this place was perfect. Great food, met some interesting folks and really enjoyed being here.

Outside patio street side allows you to relax and enjoy an afternoon pick-me-up in the shade. Coffee is delicious and our son loved his raspberry almond Danish. It was devoured in seconds so no one could even get a bite to taste it.

This small, casual diner and cafe makes fresh, hot brunch to order. Our favorites are the egg-cheese-bacon croissant and the breakfast burrito smothered in mild green chili. Mason brings a great vibe to the cash register.

Thank John B
