Truly enjoyed stopping into the Frothy Cup for an expresso. Great staff! The lady behind the counter shared with us the history of the location and their many years of serving the finest coffee.

I LOVED The Frothy Cup. I was visiting my cousin in Boulder and we stopped by because she loves the area and I fell in love as well. It is so cozy inside that I wanted to curl up with my chai on a chair...and read my book until they closed. If you love coffee, and desserts this place is for you. My chai latte was so good that I didn't want it to end and the "Frothy's Gone Nuts" muffin that we shared (minus the yogurt) was MOUTHWATERING. I am writing this at home in NYC and I am upset that I'm so far away and can't stop in right now. If you are in the area absolutely stop in, you won't be disappointed!More

My teen son and I stopped in for a quick snack and something hot. They have the tastiest cookies! They are huge and I only bought one. After tasting, I wished I had purchased more! I had a great cup of cinnamon hot tea too....I will return if ever in the area.More

The Mocha Javachino was SO good! It was perfect for a hot day and better than an Frappuccino. The service was great, too!

The Frothy Cup is a back-to-back winner for the Best Hot Drinks in Idaho Springs! With a large menu to choose from, you can't go wrong with any of their lattes. And don't forget to grab a baked good, such as a giant Blueberry Bliss...muffin. So delicious!More

Love small town coffee shops and this one did not disappoint. The barista was friendly and helpful. The spinach and artichoke quiche was very good. My husband got the breakfast burrito that was also very good. Of course got cappuccino which was fantastic.

Wow. Can't go wrong here. Locals have their own mugs. Did I mention the burrito was delicious? bathrooms are full of interesting poetry. They could double the size of the place if they used the back room. I'd go back again!

I believe you may be referring to the Frothydoodle. An eggless cookie made with molasses, rolled oats, organic unsweetened coconut, sugars, flour, butter, cinnamon and other yummy spices.
