Buena Vista Roastery

A Cafe and Bakery - We're pretty up tight about serving the best espresso drinks around. Drinks or beans are available. The roasting facility is just a block away. Everything it roasted slowly at ultra-high altitude where the sugars caramelize differently and create brilliant profiles...Fair Trade and Organic Certified. Free Wi-fi. Outdoor seating. Happy people. Ridiculously good.

I love Espresso Macchiato's and try to order them wherever possible. Generally many coffee shops think I am ordering a carmel machi-garbage sugar drink so I usually just walk out because that means they have no idea what good coffee is. Saying this to give context at what a coffee snob I am. :)
My wife ordered a vanilla latte which she loved and actually drank the entire thing.
I ordered my beloved espresso macchiato which turned out great. They have good quality coffee to begin with then they made it just right!
Also staff is very friendly which is typical of the BV area.

There are several good restaurants to enjoy lunch at there in BV, this one is certainly worth a try. We enjoyed a nice Greek Salad and shared a grilled chicken breast on a. Pretzel bun, tasty sandwich, easy enough to share. Also, make sure you try their coleslaw. Good staff, plus, they’re a bakery, so you’re able to get a loaf of bread to take home, or some scones, we got hold of some nice day old. And don’t leave without trying their carrot/coconut cake. To Die For...Enjoy, Salida1048

Stumbled upon this place looking for coffee. Discovered they make gluten and dairy crepes (stop the madness! ). And boy was it tasty. They even customized my order. My cap was delish (speaks volumes considering I am a coffee snob). Disappointed they didn't offer pastries at Midland Station though. Much better than the coffee down the road. Would have checked out the main shop but we were told it was closed.

The Princeton Club

Reviewed By Timothy C - Prescott Valley, Arizona, United States

Last year was really good. Sitting on the porch is always pleasant. It was again this trip. However service was poor. Burgers were burned and flat ( ordered medium). Server brought one serving cup of mustard and catsup for the four of us to share. Sadly she was missing in action most of our visit even though it was 1:30 and not crowded. We are batting .500 now. We will see if we go back. Beautiful place!

Loback's Bakery

Reviewed By Al O - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

We stopped in after eating lunch in town. By early afternoon the selection was somewhat limited, but the blueberry donuts, cookies and chocolate covered, cream filled donuts were very good. The women behind the counter was friendly and told us about the history of the bakery and about the town. It was a fun stop that I would recommend if in the Buena Vista area.

With an open kitchen, full bar, friendly staff and great tunes, the atmosphere promises to be a truly positive, energetic experience. We serve sandwiches, burritos, hamburgers, soups, and bowls. We have great sides to compliment each meal such as brown rice, seasonal veggies, fries, salads, our HRK Super Slaw, and much more. We also have a great kids and dessert menu! All our meat is grass fed, Colorado sourced, and all our food will be refined sugar, soy, and peanut free (even our desserts!).

Not familiar with Kombucha? You will be, because we will be the first restaurant around to feature at least 4 different flavors on tap! We are THE place to go for take-away.

You can even place an order in the morning, request a pickup time in the afternoon, and we'll have it waiting for you. At House Rock Kitchen, we love a good time! And what's a better time in the Colorado mountains than being outside, eating and having a drink? Well, how about a bocce and badminton court to play on while you do it? (Yea, it's awesome). Plans also include an outside bar, great seating options, and an area for games that will entertain both the young and old.

Had an hour to kill before rafting, so we grabbed a late breakfast here. It was about $50 for the four of us for coffee and pastries. Kind of high, I thought, for what we got,

Quaint, cool ambiance. Really good coffee. Just had sticker shock

We had great sushi and sale, and green tea ice cream as dessert. The service is very casual and cheery, and they all kick in to assist each other in an organized way. Next time we're going to try the curry or Thai noodles. Good food and food service....highly recommend!

Like a drive up back in the 50s and 60s, this burger joint is the bomb. In the same location for over 60+ years...must be because the food is good, especially the burgers. Oh, the fries, oh, my, they are coated with something and are delicious!!! I love that after you order they don't give you a number or ask your name...no on the bottom of your receipt is the name of a movie star from the 50s and 60s. It is cute to see a 70ish man walk up when Tab Hunter is called or Clark Gable. Watch for the smile on a grandma's face when Betty Hutton or Rita Hayward's name is called. Great fun....good food.
