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.

We are early risers so we enjoyed a sunrise on their deck. I had the caramel roll and hubby had a panini. Both were amazing.

It’s small but has fantastic views of the open cut and countryside around Lead, SD. Drive through or sit by the great picture windows. Good coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and smiles all around

Lotus up has a great atmosphere- very laid back and clean. They have indoor and outdoor seating that overlooks the open pit mine. The scone and muffins are to die for! My son absolutely loves it.
