Cool Beans at Happy Trails
Ranked #4 of 4 Coffee & Tea in Nederland
Price range: US$1 - US$20
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 February 2018

Consistently kind staff, wonderful drinks, delicious tacos (SERIOUSLY delicious tacos!), and a lovely atmosphere. I've been coming here for years – for meeting friends, to study, or after skiing/hiking/biking – and always have a great experience.

Highlights:
-Tacos and burritos are made fresh to order, and can be made vegan and/or gluten free
-Huuuuge loose leaf tea selection
-Three types of chai
-Fresh organic milks, including alternative milks (soy, almond, coconut, rice, hemp)
-Small but delicious selection of baked goods (including certified gluten-free)
-World's best hot chocolate

A few tips:
-Front room looking crowded? There's a back room too!
-Water bowl and hitching post for dogs on the patio
-Reliable WiFi (password is on the specials board)
-Order your drink "for here" – the cups and mugs are perfect for warming your hands on
-Feeling adventurous? Try the cambric or dirty chai
-If you're visiting with friends or family, try out a card game or board game
-Take a photo with the hand-carved monkey on the patio. He's carved by the same guy who built the Carousel of Happiness that's across the street (another great place to visit)

Loved everything about this place. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to my dietary needs. My partner had a chicken burrito and I had the delicious black bean tacos (prepared vegan by request) - both were excellent. Will certainly go back when we are in the area!

I ate twice here during my wanderings around Peak to Peak Highway. A smallish, friendly, simple restaurant with great coffee and atmosphere. A limited menu but what you order is good. I had the Pollo Burrito - excellent presentation, and great taste with a bit of spice to it.
I also had the pollo tacos another day - three seemed like a good number and same great taste. Espresso to go - awesome. Also, try the lemonade - home made!
Parking is limited here ( its on 119W just off the main street) and there may be a wait while your order is prepared. This is not a fast food restaurant.
And try the couch - cozy and comfortable.

Limited seating in a coffee house that serves really fresh, delicious burritos. We had the chicken with goat cheese version and found it to be quite delicious.

My favorite place to stop for coffee on the way through Ned. The coffee is good, the service is super friendly and welcoming. I typically don't have the time to sit down and hang out, but I plan to, since the atmosphere is very mellow and relaxing. Recommended!
