We had a great lunch with efficient server. I had a yummy turkey Reuben with coleslaw. It was a perfect size. Not too huge. You can have other sides with it. Husband had a delicious chimichanga.

After reading quite a few positive reviews I headed to Niwot for breakfast. While we enjoyed the homey atmosphere and the very friendly staff, the food was disappointing. The eggs Benedict were not that good - very salty ham and the hollandaise was not that...More

Amanda, the server, was sunny and hospitable, befitting a breakfast in this cheerful suburb on the Rocky Mountain front; we dined outside. The Veggie Skillet seemed to do honor to nearby farmlands. The Honey Smoked Salmon Benedict was less remarkable, though -- the fish tasted...More
