A group of four, we really enjoyed our time at City on a Hill Coffee shop. First, and most important, the coffee was great. iI understand they are roasters as well. The service was very good, and so was the apple-strudels we ordered. It is a large place, and while there were a few people in there, it did not... More

Had coffee several times during my stay, good variety and you can purchase it to take home. Had great looking bakery goods I didn't try any though.

Stopped by on our way to Salida. I got a chocolate croissant and a lemon bar with the cafe au lait coffee. The chocolate croissant was perfection, flaky and chocolate lot goodness. The lemon bar was delicious as well. The coffee was outstanding, fresh and I loved it. The atmosphere in here is pleasant and the decor, including wood carving... More

We stopped in during our stay in Leadville, it is a nice little spot to grab some coffee and have some wifi to use! The chai tea latte was delicious, it was nice to have on a cold day.

Enjoyed the coffee here and there's a nice selection of loaf slices and quiches. It's a great spot to relax and get in from the cold

We were on a journey escaping Breckinridge for a bit and came to Leadville and found the "avenue" to be just awesome. If that's the sundae, City on a Hill is the cherry on top. My girlfriend said it best, "you know how sometimes you come to a place and go this is totally my vibe! Well city on a... More

We visited City on a hill three times during our visit. The coffee was always great. We had sandwiches and pastries and they were both great.

Easy-going local vibe in this warm and welcoming coffee house. My chai latte was made the way I wanted by friendly baristas. They were quick, too, even though it was pretty busy inside on a wintery Saturday morning. A lot of warm woods adorn the open space, including the table tops and wood art of mountain ranges (available for purchase).... More

I like their coffee, but they are inconsistent. I always order a latte. Sometimes it is perfect. Other times it seems it doesn't have any syrup. I am in their coffee club, but I don't always receive my discount. Sometimes they are friendly and sometimes they aren't.

I can't come to Leadville without stopping in to get a cup of coffee! The espresso is amazing and the staff is outstanding each time I visit!
