Only open for breakfast and lunch, the Garden Gate offers good, down home dishes at reasonable prices. A casual eatery for locals and visitors, you will leave full, satisfied and taken care of. My personal favorite is their chicken salad sandwich. Yummy!!!

Our bicycle gang regularly rides from Longmont to Niwot to have breakfast at the incomparable Garden Gate Café. The service is good, the selections are extensive, and the prices quite reasonable. Their pancakes (especially the cranberry and marmalade) are so good the group orders some to share, and their egg dishes are always perfect. My sweetheart loves their fruit and... More

My brother and I stopped in for lunch after a hot and exhausting bike ride. It was just what we both needed. My brother thoroughly enjoyed the Classic Club and my Mile High sandwich was excellent; the avocado in both was the clincher! I would definitely be a regular if I lived in the area.

What a hidden gem this place is, nestled in a small strip mall in the quant town of Niwot. When you walk into the café it seems rather dark with only a couple of windows, but it is quite charming with a country atmosphere. Between each booth hangs an antique window pane, with old barn lumber affixed to the walls.... More

Great ambiance for a small gathering. In the summer they have a small patio out front. Good salads and sandwiches. Fun local hangout.

Thia is an outstanding restaurant for breakfast that you must try. They have everything. From the griddle they offer Sweet Cream Buttermilk Pancakes; Blueberry Pancakes, Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Granola Blueberry pancakes and Banana Walnut Pancakes. You can add sausage, bacon or ham and eggs! My favorite, which I ordered was the Southwestern Omelette. It included Chorizo sausage, pico de gallo,... More
