The staff at The Sled Haus suggested Lotus Up for our morning coffee. Drive up only! Slightly disappointed in this only because it looked like a great place to enjoy your Java! But understand as well. Would recommend!

We arrived just as they were closing the very kindly accommodated our coffee desperation with grace, conversation, and humor! This is an adorable stop that I would recommend again and again. The coffee was delicious and very reasonable too and we are somewhat picky coffee...drinkers.More

The Lotus Up was a great breakfast spot for our two mornings in Lead, SD. We had oatmeal, bagels (really nice and light -- fresh!), a huuuuge "fajita" (breakfast wrap), good coffee and cappucinno's. There is outdoor seating overlooking the main street and the gold...mine, as well as indoor seating and a drive through. A bit pricey, but well worth it and we'd go back!More

We come here every time we come to the hills, once or twice a year. This place is amazing I dont say that lightly we owed coffee shops for years. Can not beat this place within 100 miles.

Great food, good sized portions and not expensive. The cold brew coffee was sooo good! We will definitely be back!

Jamie and her crew at Lotus Up is always so helpful in helping recommend what to eat or drink! I love the fact that they have gluten free bagels, bread, and scones! Their signature sandwiches are awesome! My fave is the Plymouth Rock on gluten...free bread and my kids love their homemade caramel rolls! The view is next to none if you’re up in Lead! You can lookout to the open cut and a playground watching kids play!More

We went looking for coffee, but enjoyed a good breakfast. They also have a good deli. They close after lunch.

We were just passing through and stopped for coffee. I had a ice mocha which was delicious. Also had a chocolate muffin, also fresh and delicious. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Great view. Very comfortable with several couches to sit at if you don't want to...sit at a table. Perfect!More

I am adding this Cafe’ to my list of favorite places to relax and have a coffee. Staff were friendly. My vanilla latte was perfect and my chocolate scone was tasty. Did I mention the great view and the relaxing atmosphere. Travel safe...

We each had a panini and a mocha. Very good sandwich and coffee. Recommend it as a place to eat something to hold you until dinner.
