I came here for my birthday with my sisters and brother in law and decided to get their Sherpa Chai, I love chai but there is usually to much milk and sugar and not enough chai. This chai was fabulous! There was a sharp ginger flavor and the chai, milk and sugar balance was perfection. My sister wanted to get an iced coffee with malt and the owner suggested getting a blended malt latte with vanilla added and the drink was really good. There was a hazlenut latte & a white chocolate mocha as well:). If you're looking for a good place with amazing coffee and a relaxed atmosphere, come here!

This place is cute! We just stopped in after hiking and had a yummy smoothie and the mini breakfast burrito. If you're starving..get two haha but definitely worth it to stop in. Seemed kind of like a locals hangout. It's definitely easier to find parking here rather than Boulder. Nice people that work there too!

Lyons, Co. They handle the long line of breakfast seekers well, even though there are some glitches made in the process. These are corrected quickly. Excellent breakfast items including the granola. I would prefer more granola and less yogurt however. Decent latte even if it was a tad too milky.

We stopped on our way through to Estes Park. Very friendly people. Breakfast food and sandwiches for a very reasonable price. My turkey sandwich had fresh ciabatta bread, lettuce, tomato, and plenty of turkey, and a side of chopped fruit.

Awesome place. Relaxed environment. Great lunch stop!

Really solid food for breakfast and lunch. Didn't get to try their coffee but everything looked amazing. Super slow food prep. First time being there so not sure if that is the norm. Would try them again!

Great place to stop in Lyons! The atmosphere is friendly and it's a great place for breakfast during @planetbluegrass Folks Fest. The service is friendly and wonderful. Beware tho, they are busy and your order may take a while. I haven't seen real plates, but this may be a Fest thing. The burrito was great and I would definitely order it again!!

Very good stopped to get a quick breakfast.

Staple local gathering spot. Yummy biscuit batter style cinnamon roles. Pretty good coffee. I enjoy the drip brews which are offered in several different roasts. Cozy atmosphere which is loved by all, but creates the drawback of limited seating on a busy day.

Possibly the best bagels I've ever had in my life.

Bridget B

One of the best drip coffee I've ever had.

Nice ambiance. Good pastries & coffee.

Cute coffee shop! Dogs allowed on leash, restrooms for customers, tables for laptops or meetings. We took ours to go and I loved my bagel sandwich!! The custom options make it super easy for vegetarians to eat both delicious and nutritious breakfast. Not the best place I'd you're looking for any sort of fancy coffee, but quantity is A+.

I went to both coffee shops in town because I was awake before the rest of my family. The other coffee shop owner wasn't very kind and I really didn't enjoy the coffee or the food items. Do I didn't have my hopes up on this place when I got there it was a really family type deal with people who wanted to socialize with you. The employees were very nice and helpful and the food was awesome I strongly suggest going hear of your in Lyons.

Pretty good food but slow service. Usually busy with tourists, especially on the weekends.

Very cool ambiance. Very relaxed and "come as you are." The inside is full of random older tables and chairs and reminded me of furniture my grandma had. Employees were friendly and attentive. I got the Steamboat sandwich. They ran out of their usually bread for sandwiches so I chose the everything bagel. It was a great choice! Went really well with the sandwich. The sandwich was really flavorful and had lots of turkey on it. I'd come back here again for the relaxed atmosphere. Great place to come and read the paper or a book, grab a coffee or other drink, and just chill.

Definitely local flavor here. Great vibe and food is prepared methodically, almost like there is love in every plate. It takes a long time though. One of our orders was incorrect, so I had to wait for mine while the rest of the family ate. Didn't like that. Sit out front if you want outdoor seating. The back part ain't great.

Thank you for the great coffee and breakfast sandwiches while my family has been staying in Lyons for my sisters wedding. Wish we had a place like this at home!

In the cute town of Lyons on the way to Estes Park, this coffee shop and eatery was welcoming and easy to get to. Parking was open just a few stores away from the café. When you walk in you immediately feel warm and welcome. The menu continues the dog theme with "Water bowl" meaning beverages, with sizes ranging up to the large called "hound". The eatery menu is called "Dog bowl". I didn't eat there so I can't comment on the menu but it sure smelled good in there. I ordered a "hound" sized latte with mocha syrup - only 2 pumps - and it was delicious. It cost $5.15. The WiFi password also kept with the dog theme it's Goodboy****. I was also told by a nearby resident that their motto is "down, sit, stay". Haha. I'll definitely be back. Those who frequent the place appear to have a coffee punch card that the store alphabetically at the café. Eat in or take out on your way to Estes Park.

I've been stopping at this cute little cafe for the past few years. Love supporting the businesses in Lyons. There is parallel parking out front (on both sides of the street). It can be full but don't give up, you may find another spot around the corner. The cafe itself has a handful of tables including some retro Formica ones (my fave!). There are fresh made pastries, egg scrambled and loads of drink choices including local Sherpa chai. On this visit I went for the vegan burrito (made in house) and my friend went for a scramble which had tomatoes, spinach and feta cheese. If you drive through often there are punch cards which they store alphabetically in a little box on the counter. If you don't mind a day old pastry score one or two for just a dollar. The service is not as friendly as at other local businesses but I suspect I'll be back on my next ride through.

The coffee and the ambience of this place is awesome. The breakfast burrito, I got there was horrible though

Cute place in downtown Lyons. The pups let us hang out with them on a lazy Saturday. Good eats and delicious coffee!!

Quaint little joint. They've got sandwiches and serve breakfast all day long. I had the chicken salad sandwich although I don't remember what it was actually called. They've got a few two-person tables and a big table that seats eight, so it's kind of a shared seating. You could tell this is a place that locals go to. Food was good and fresh. The staff was friendly. The customer in front of me was a pretentious little prick. Can't blame the restaurant for that they were being polite to him as they should.

Mommy at the front was so super helpful and friendly which was warm and calming as my silky smooth decaf 2% latte.

The vegan options are very appreciated and I always enjoy a latte here.

My husband asked for a cafe au lait, after 10 minutes he asked where it was and the barista told him to fill his own coffee and heâ??d froth some milk on top for him. We ordered a scramble with veggies and it can out as 2 microwaved eggs with cold tomatoes and onions on the side. When we inquired they told us they didnâ??t have a skillet ( after the fact). Poor service and poor food.

Greig is an awesome guy he is the owner. This place has amazing coffee and the best cinnamon roll I have ever had! -Einstein's =)


Great coffee and food plus friendly service. A comfortable place to visit with friends, have a meeting or use the free WiFi.

Mommy at the front was so super helpful and friendly which was warm and calming as my silky smooth decaf 2% latte. The place is perfect for both locals and visitors like me. I had to try the red rocks scrambler and they mentioned the free wifi and Vegan options. Within 5 minutes I had my super healthy scramble with spinach,, feta cheese, and fresh tomatoes that have a flavor filling crunch. My only regret was not having enough room to try everything else the desert and pastry options are tempting and almost a curse for those like me who are on a very strict diet LOL. We all know there's a show out there that had a song that welcomed us with the words "where everyone knows your name " Isn't it nice to go to a place where "everyone learns your name"?

Great place for breakfast stop before heading into Estes Park. Really good coffee also, very friendly group also.

Mike G.

Great place to stop before heading to RMNP. Coffee, breakfast, and pastries are good. Rodriguez and his blue dog would be happy.

Wendi Lindsey

What a perfect and quaint little place to stop and get a great latte and perfect homemade pastry. This place was busy but not too busy to be the best baristas Iâ??ve met, very personal service and everyone seemed like family.
