Delicious pizza! We ordered three different pizzas and they were all fantastic! This was the first time I have ever had grilled red grapes on a pizza and they were fantastic! The only complaint is the restaurant literally seats 14 people. Go at an off time for a seat or get take out. I highly recommend you eat here!

Comfy space with good coffee, good wifi, excellent baked goods. We stopped by several times for coffees and bacon and egg burritos- delicious and calorie dense, just what you are craving when you arrive in Leadville in the winter, gasping for breath.

Cookies with Altitude is an amazing bakery in Leadville, with homemade cookies, fudge, doughnuts and bread. They have started serving breakfast and lunch as well. Sherry Randall is the owner.
At $3 for a cup of coffee I was a little shocked but it had been poured already. Next time I will ask before ordering. Cookies were quite good, fresh and tasty. Recommend the cookies, your call on the coffee. Good strong coffee, just the way I like it, but when you cost more than Starbucks, maybe not so good.

We were starving and need a place to have a late breakfast. There was a great choice and I enjoyed the eggs Benedict and the stuffed French toast.

They charged me $3 each for small kids cones. couldn't see any prices posted ahead of time, so I kind of felt ripped off....but I guess they have a right to charge what they want and I should have asked.

We were tired, hungry, and in Leadville Colorado. We were driving thru Leadville's main drag, and noticed a fancy billboard on the sidewalk next to an old 1800's shop.
We pulled over to find Quincys, a local steakhouse. The billboard advertised that night's steak dinner special, so we walked on in.
As we came inside, we were transported back in time-he tall ceilings with fancy tiles, an old bar, and charming rustic tables that looked right out of the silver boom 1880s era.
Service was right hospitable, steak, potato and vegetable delicious and hot.
Good value for the money also.

So I'm going full disclosure on this restaurant. We had lots of questions and I think having more information ahead of time would have made it an even better experience. We thought it sounded like a really fun time, which it was. The reservation part was flawless and helpful (I think it was Erica). Let me say though it's difficult to get to -- the road from Vail was a bit treacherous (especially after an incidental snowfall). Leave extra time because it took us close to an hour, that was even rushing a bit in the slippery conditions. It's up a mountain pass so it's pretty, but a little scary. So rushing wasn't the best start. The nordic center part went quickly and we were given good instruction (Bailey was great). The walk to the yurt seemed far (it's a mile, which seems really far when you are walking in the snow and you are cold-- it took about 25 minutes and did I mention it was COLD?! Freezing in fact. We didn't dress well enough - we should have worn snow pants. I asked if people do and the nice person said they sometimes do. I'm telling you if it's cold out wear snowpants. Also 100% wear gloves and a hat. Inside it was a little chilly too, so wear a sweater so you don't have to eat with your coat on (I didn't dress warmly enough, if I had the temperature would have been fine. The most important thing is the food and the service, which they nailed. The food we thought was fantastic -- which it needs to be with the work to get to it! But it was. We had the pheasant and the lamb. All courses were great. And the service was fantastic, we really enjoyed our server.
Another thing I want to add that I wasn't sure about from reading other reviews (but learned when I made the reservation -- the cost of dinner includes the required park pass AND the cost of the equipment of snow shoes or cross country skis.
So it really is a 5-star experience, but for us it was a 4-star because of other elements that are related.

Conveniently located on the main street of town, this new restaurant looks like it has been there for 100 years. Simple decor in an old brick building. Menu is extensive, but all the staples are there. Bottled imported beers are only $3. I'll be back again.

Tried a flight of 5 different beers and had another pint. Beer was delicious. Also had a Bison Brat, but was unimpressed. I'd recommend you drop in for a few pints or a flight and a pint, but go elsewhere in town to eat.Thanks for your feedback. Happy to hear you enjoyed the brews. We do allow outside food to be brought in and have several menus of places that will deliver to the brewery. Come see us again
