We ordered a breakfast burrito, fudge, and a couple pastries and all were delicious. The staff connected us with a local who found us a place to stay and gave us directions. It is a tiny place with terrific food.

We stopped here for dessert. We ended up trying the sugar cookies. Nice but not too sweet. In someways, it reminded us as fluffy shortcake. I also had a donut. Service was friendly and prices were reasonable. They also serve food but we didn't have any. We would go back.

The ticket seller at the Leadville train recommended this as a good place to have lunch and we noticed that it had also received "best of" awards. The decor in the minimal seating area left a lot to be desired but the sandwiches were very good. However, my special of the day was a bit too spicy with a "pesto"... More

Name sounded delicious, but the cookies were very small, not inexpensive, and definitely didn't look yummy. Seriously, we were psyched for a sweet treat and this wasn't it.

I am never disappointed when visiting Cookies with Altitude. My chocolate fix is always satisfied ! There are numerous choices of baked goods along with various hot & cold drinks to choose from. The staff is friendly & informative. A 'must' when in Leadville!

I stopped for a quick lunch. The special of the day was excellent! Also picked out a few cookies for good measure. Prices are a little on the high side, but the food is good

We stopped for lunch service was good, food was good, but the price was high. 9+ for a sandwich no drink or chips. That would be extra. Ouch!!!

They make good coffee, and the turnovers are good. The chocolate cake donut is moist. They are a better choice for a sweet tooth than you might find in other coffee places in town.

Excellent selection of pastries, cookies, coffee, tea-about anything you could want for a quick breakfast or snack. Awesome quality and taste. Atmosphere and decor were great. Sat a table where I could see prep in kitchen. That was fun. Portions big and prices reasonable.

Thank Jacque P
