How good was it? 3 days in a row we had 2 eggs, bacon, toast and awesome home fries all for $9. Nice clean patio with great view of the mountains makes for very enjoyable meal.

As an Albertan, The Big Bend exemplifies what I would call "quintessential BC". You can stroll in at any time of day for breakfast and enjoy an unpretentious and delicious experience. At The Big Bend, you can bask in the summer sun and mountain scenery from an outdoor patio that feels like a neighbor's deck - and pour your own (delicious) coffee for unlimited refills. You won't be pestered by over eager service staff - you're just left to enjoy awesome your salmon eggs benedict and berries and cream stuffed french toast. Breakfast is my favourite food group and Big Bend does it right. Very casual feel - atmosphere is very important to us as diners! We always save Big Bend for our last day in Golden and it never fails to leave our bellies and minds full of sweet memories!

The food and service were great at this café. The décor is full of antiques and wall hangings with funny phrases. We found ourselves enjoying some great breakfast conversation as we reminisced about years gone by and laughed at the witty signs.

Our hotel did not offer complimentary breakfast so we found this little gem in downtown Golden via Trip Advisor. Thanks for the previous reviews. They were spot on! The décor is charming, the place unassuming and laid back, deck space available weather permitting, coffee and water are self-serve but the food is delicious, well-prepared, flavorful, served in a timely manner, with a variety of choices for your varied tastes.

I had the breakfast special, my husband the scramble special. Both were served with killer skillet potatoes--creamy inside and crunchy outside--and locally made bread, toasted and buttered.

I appreciate a place that serves food hot! Hot food on a cold plate is not good. This food was served correctly. If ever in Golden again, we will be back to try lunch--maybe dinner.

We really enjoyed our breakfast. The portions were large, coffee strong and good. They had gluten free bread! The prices were good. Service nice. Overall a good meal!
