Very nice coffee/beverage stop. Very nice staff. Had some cool wood carvings for sale of various ski hills and mountain parks, etc.

We had lunch her and the sandwiches were excellent (turkey with pesto on mozzarella). It was very busy due to a marathon in town, but the flow was good and the food not long in coming. Nice custom wood art work on the walls. Definitely...More

We stopped in here Friday morning for real coffee and a bite of breakfast. Try the breakfast burrito...wonderful! Notice other people got a plate which would have made it easier to eat. Also had a Chocolate chip Blueberry scone as an appetizer before the burrito....More

We stopped in at City on a Hill coffee shop. We had an espresso and a cappuccino. Both were excellent and hit the spot. We also bought some of their roasted coffee beans. The staff were very friendly and helpful!

We stopped by for a snack and hot beverage on our way back to Frisco, after visiting the dog sledding adventure tour. The snacks are delicious, the coffee and tea is too and the atmosphere uniquely amazing!

We came here last year and had not stopped talking about this great little coffee shop. The most important part of our conversation was the cinnamon rolls. We got another one today and again.... these are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had!

Visiting Leadville for a brief skiing escape from FL. The City quickly became both my day-starter and day-ender (pre-dinner) location. Very helpful staff, obviously good house coffees and pastries. Nice setting for relaxing and chatting with "fellow beaners". Made my visit very enjoyable.

I was in Leadville for work and City on a Hill was the perfect spot to grab a quick breakfast burrito and coffee before a long day outside.

This is your typical coffee bar with free wifi. They apparently usually serve food, but the day we were there they were not.
