So we've been driving since Rawlins and yes we wanted breakfast and we pulled over just at the cusp of breakfast versus lunch and most awesome person who was there to make sure everything worked first said "it will be a while hope you don't want breakfast" then seated us and whispered "if you're fast I can get you breakfast" then sailed through food and locals and tourists while we admired upside down ponderosa trunks supposedly holding the ceiling up and we got a really good breakfast and left well fed and ready for the next leg of our journey. With admiration for those who live in small middle of nowhere towns that make you think I'd live here if things were different. Bravo Walden.

Moose Creek Cafe

Dine in our casual family dining room and enjoy a hearty meal or in our 'Fireside Room' while relaxing with a drink from our bar. Summer weather gives way to dining out on our open air patio.

Back again after a long motorcycle ride., The green chili is great, family servers, and the burgers juicy. What else can you ask for when you are hungry, thirsty and wanting a fast meal.,

Reviewed By tlgburke - Pensacola, Florida

Don't drive thru Walden without stopping here. This is some of the best barbeque you will ever sink your teeth into and the homemade potato salad and slaw are to die for. The atmosphere is very homey and Larry the "pit boss" went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Awesome food !!!

Four Winds Pizza

Four Winds Pizza is a family owned restaurant that has been operating in the small town of Walden CO for over 21 years. The building is one of the oldest Walden's main street and is quirky and fun. The food is all made from scratch and prepared to order. Come in relax and enjoy excellent homemade food and cool refreshing ice cream for dessert.

Reviewed By Elizabeth S - Rand, Colorado

Pizza just not that good. How do you mess up pizza? Bad sauce and underdone crust. Not cooked at a high enough temperatures. PLUS, they are NOT at all friendly. Very grudging service. Have also had a sub sandwich, don't bother, so bland and unimaginative. Better places to go in Walden that appreciate you as a customer.
