“Best spot in town”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Every small town should have a place like this. Clean, friendly, and comfortable with tasty offerings. Great spot for people watching, as all sorts of folks frequent this place. The muffins are delicious!

“A must stop on a cold day (most days in Leadville!)”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I stop here regularly (10 - 12 x a year) on my travels through Leadville. In fact, more times than anyplace else in town. It just draws you in. The expresso is always excellent and the service friendly. There is a large selection of bakery items, almost all oversized, so you don't go away hungry. Excellent chocolate pastries! The atmosphere is quite casual, as it is a favorite place to hang among locals.

“Good Coffee”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Locally roasted bean for a great cup of coffee. Also offers breakfast and lunch items. Quick service and great food. Grab a cup and enjoy the free Wi-Fi or just sit back and enjoy conversation with friends (old and new)

“The Best Coffee in Collorado”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

It's 10 degrees below freezing and my two sons and I, cold Aussies driving from Vail to Santa Fe,
In desperate need for a good coffee and some hot breakfast, stumble on City on a Hill where we are treated to the best coffee, wraps and croissants served by the most charming amenable staff in this little snow covered town. It kept us going all the way to Santa Fe.

“I really like this place.”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The coffee is decent, the food is decent, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is really groovy...laid back, casual, but very nice, welcoming. I look forward to returning time and time again.
