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 hubby was looking for soup, which is why we stopped here, as it looked to be the type of restaurant that would carry it on the menu. The fish and chips and chicken strips were only worthy of a kids meal, being of the blah frozen variety. The only redeeming part of that entree was the seasoned fries. The... More

Stopped for breakfast at this unassuming spot off Interstate 70 about an hour west of Denver. What a pleasant surprise! My wife's french toast was "the best I have ever had". My eggs, etc. superb. All this delivered by a friendly waitress at rock bottom prices.

We had to get going early, and Marion's was open for breakfast. We ordered all sorts of breakfast items, and filled ourselves full of delicious omelets, chicken fried steak, coffee, etc. The Kid loved the biscuits and gravy, and with all the sausage in the gravy, it was a meal by itself. A few of tables full of locals at... More
