I loved it. It was good food, and good times. Not much to choose from in Leadville, but if you have options, this is a good one!

Great history behind the restaurant. I ordered turkey Manhattan on Texas toast, and got white bread. It wasn't overly great. There was plenty to eat on the plate. The broccoli had a look that was overlooked. We didn't complain, just ate what we could and left. But if you are looking for a variety in food. This is your place.

After dogsledding, we ate at the Golden Burro (recommended to us by our guide). My food was excellent. I got the country fried steak with sausage gravy and eggs. My daughter got the Huevos Rancheros and wasn't impressed with the green chili sauce, but loved her blueberry pancake.

Visited based on the numerous positive reviews, but left mildly disappointed. As a NJ native this place doesn't quite come up to the level of the average Jersey diner for breakfast. Service was perfunctory, though not unfriendly, but it was very slow. My veggie omelette was small and the potatoes deep fried (which is ok, but I'd have preferred a... More

One of our staples every time we visit Leadville. Between the breakfast burrito and the pancakes this place is great for breakfast. Either to fill up before skiing or to hang out for the day. Be a little patient as we have never been in there and it wasn't busy, another testament to it is it is worth the wait!
