Marion's of the Rockies has been around... it seems forever. It is a local's favorite because of the old fashioned comfort, homemade delicious food and friendly service. They don't serve dinner, but open at 6am every day which is convenient for travelers who want to get an early start. Seating Mon-Th is until 2:30 and on weekends until 3pm. My... More

Apparently, this is a favorite place for locals and regular tourist to stop for a meal. The staff was very friendly and helpful but it took over 30 minute to get our lunch order. While the food was good, just don't be in a hurry especially when they are busy.

After a week+ of vacationing and eating in Idaho Springs this is our #1 pick. The service was great. Lots of food for the money. Best of all was that the food was super delicious! This is not a chain, but a great little local restaurant.

Marion's has all the great aspects of a breakfast spot that we look for, cute & cozy atmosphere, friendly service and great home-cooked food. Definitely our new favorite place to take a Sunday drive to!

On our way to hike in Breckenridge we just popped in the Marion's for breakfast because there were a bunch of cars out front. As we were walking in we saw that these enormous cinnamon rolls up front that we had to try. My wife and girls could not stop with the moaning in delight until the entire thing was... More

Stopped in for breakfast, you can always tell the quality of a restaurant by the quality of their bacon. Bacon was GREAT, so we're the eggs, hash Browns, biscuits and gravy, ice cold milk and great service.. Going again today.. Yummy!

Marion's appears to be THE place for breakfast in Idaho Springs. Wide selection of breakfast items, large means LARGE when you order juice, competent chef, friendly and competent wait staff. Homey decor with travel posters, candlesticks, lighthouse and numerous other butt ugly knickknacks. We'll come again when in I.S.

We wanted a down home meal and found it here. The chicken fried steak was large, very tasty with plenty of gravy. Two of us prefer rare hamburgers and ours were done to perfection. Even the sunny-side-up egg was perfectly prepared. We will visit Marion's again the next time we are in Idaho Springs for lunch.

My favorite place for breakfast. Ample food prepared just the way I like it and the prices are downright reasonable. Famous pancakes.
