Named after the actual windy saddle just up the road on Lookout Mountain, The Windy Saddle is definitely a great option. This coffee shop and gathering place is a favorite of many local Golden residents. Its unique charm, exposed brick walls, and old wood floors give it a cozy and historic charm that woos many off Washington Avenue to explore its character.
College students use it as a place to study, moms gather after dropping their kids off from school for a chat, bikers and runners stop in after a morning adventure, and old timers gather to catch up on the days events. Though it is a coffee shop, The Windy Saddle also has delicious breakfast and lunch items, and they are building a strong reputation as a great gluten free bakery as well. In fact they have recently expanded to open the 5 Star Baking Co on 12th St in downtown Golden. They also serve beer and wine and are building a reputation as a great place to come at the end of the day s well. If you are a people watcher, come early and grab a coffee and sit by the window and watch the cars and passers by. If you are looking for local retreat, or a place to have a great conversation with a friend, give this place a try.
