The Windy Saddle

The Windy Saddle

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.

The Golden Diner-a local favorite

The Golden Diner in Golden CO

The Golden Diner in Golden CO

On a cold and snowy november morning, I have to say that The Golden Diner hit the spot!!  I just met a friend there for breakfast before starting my day in downtown Golden.  It is a favorite of locals and tourists alike here in Golden.  Located on 12th St., a half block East of Washington ave, The Golden Diner sits in a quiet corner of Golden.  The restaurant has been open since 2009 and was voted the best breakfast in Jeffco in 2010, 2011, and 2012, and voted best lunch in Jeffco in 2012.   For breakfast, I prefer the traditional 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast.   The Golden Diner menu is full of great options though, including blueberry pancakes, biscuits and gravy, lots of omlette choices and the “hobo” which includes scrambled eggs, peppers, onions, and hashbrowns cooked together and topped with cheddar cheese!  There is much more to choose from, including great lunch items like Golden’s best homemade port green chili.  If you are looking for a breakfast place with great old town atmosphere, The Golden Diner is a great choice.  Bring a friend for a chat, or bring the family on a Saturday and experience it for yourself!
