“Hooked on The Happy Cooker”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

My wife and I were fortunate to discover The Happy Cooker last winter when we cane to the Georgetown Christmas Market. We returned with friends in August for a morning train ride on the historic route of the Georgetown Loop Railroad. After our ride, we were ready for lunch or a late breakfast. At our suggestion, several of our group walked the short distance with us to The Happy Cooker. We opted to sit outside under the large umbrellas. The inside seating was attractive also. Three of our choices from the breakfast menu were: a perfectly cooked waffle with fresh strawberries, whipped cream and two flavors of syrup along with sausage; bagels with smoked salmon, capers, onions and fruit; and a plate of huevos rancheros. All our breakfasts were hearty, delicious and reasonably priced. Our cheerful waitress spent time chatting with us. The Happy Cooker made us happy eaters.

“Always Tasty”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We go there a few times a year. The food is home style, filling and well made. The service is slower but you aren't in Denver. You're sitting in the sun or in the warm dining room depending. It's time to relax, enjoy the atmosphere and the food. I've never had a bad meal here. I love their waffles. The salads are always fresh and the drinks cold. I recommend it often.

My daughter and I spent her birthday shopping in Georgetown and decided to try this restaurant. Love the atmosphere! It is a perfect place to have a girls' day out luncheon - the food was good and the portions were amazing! Had so much fun watching the hummingbirds outside the restaurant window... would love to eat here again.

A very relaxing environment. The staff was attentive to our short time table and made sure that our order and meal was taken care of quickly. And yes, the food/drinks were good too!

“Lunch for two”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Whilst making an unplanned visit to Georgetown, which is well worth a visit, we decided to stay and have some lunch before driving through the Guenella Pass, also worth the time and effort of doing. We stopped at the Happy Cooker which looked to be quite popular. We elected to sit inside due to it being a very hot day and the outside seating area being fully occupied. The surroundings were quite nice as was the food. The only drawback really was the noise level of the waitress. Though she was trying to be helpful she was extremely loud and throughout our meal all we could hear was her speaking to other customers!! We would eat here again but would wear ear plugs!
