This restaurant (use that loosely as it is a coffee and sandwhiche shop) was recommended to us by a local. It really is coffee, smoothies, and sandwhiches. Includes breakfast options (wraps, quiche, breakfast burritos). It starts serving lunch at 11am on weekends. The sandwhiches were good, nothing we would return specifically for.

Went there with two girlfriends a few weeks ago for coffee. We shared a brownie between the three of us (big spenders!). Both it and the coffee was great. Ambiance fun.

4 of us had breakfast and tried almost everything! The white chocolate strawberry muffin and very berry bar were amazing! Also enjoyed carrot coffee cake, breakfast veggie burrito, breakfast sandwiches and quiche! The coffees were fabulous...Dark is the night with a double shot of espresso and white out coffee were everyone's fav!

We went there after the farmers' market, and were ready for a hearty meal and cup o coffee or chai tea. It was also about time to have a seat and just watch the visitors to Golden. The burrito and the other breakfast sandwiches were very tasty and filling, definitely worth the money, and also rather inexpensive for downtown Golden.

Very cute place, with a good selection of food though not so large that it's difficult to make a decision. The spinach quiche was great.

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.

Thank Gehrig S
