I discovered this local coffee shop a couple years ago. It is now my favorite place to stop when traveling through Silverthorne. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. I have tried many of the drinks on the menu, all have been delicious. My favorite thus far, was their summer seasonal Honey Lavender Latte. The espresso is smooth with low... More

Run by a local (I believe) this is a beautiful place to have coffee and relax. They serve good coffee and have nice seating inside and outside in the back that overlooks Blue River. One of the best kept secrets in Summit County to me because I rarely ever see anyone there. Come here to enjoy coffee or tea while... More

Nice little spot. More cozy than the location in a strip mall would suggest. Coffee is done really well. This Sunday morning there is live music too!

I went there to have coffee with my boyfriend in the morning and the girl that took my order was very rude and making me feel not comfortable asking for my order, love the coffee and the place is beautiful just get better staff that are nice to costumers.

Wonderful spot for a coffee break on the way to aspen. Lovely porch out back overlooking stream to enjoy our coffee. The nutty professor was a hit with all the coffee drinkers. Wonderful how all their cups are recyclable/compost able!

This is one of my favorite coffee places in the Silverthorne area. It is one of the few that is actually open as early as 6am, so it's nice to grab a coffee and a bite on your way to work or ski. They have all the classic coffee drinks as well as their own unique flavors, including one of... More

The staff was friendly and on point. There was multiple sweetener options, but they could've used organic sweeteners & dairy to be more of an upscale and healthy option than the many Starbucks a stone's throw away. Red Buffalo had cool mountain decor to match the beautiful view of the Blue River just out the back door. There is a... More

I would come here nearly every day if I lived in Silverthorne. They always have good coffee and the staff is always friendly. This is the kind of place that makes you want to become a regular.
