Reminded me of my younger days while traveling with my parents. The counter, the tables the whole package filled my head with memories. Food is good service was okay, the volume of patrons may have been a factor.

We walked to the Golden Diner early Sunday morning and were lucky to find a table for a most delicious breakfast. This is a popular place so get there early, seats fill fast and often there is a wait. The service is wonderful, everyone works...More

The Golden diner is a perennial favorite. Wonderful food. Friendly staff. Good prices. Their corned beef hash is the best in the region: flavorful, no fat, no grease, no fillers.

A few years ago we had stumbled across this diner. Staying again near Golden,CO we knew this was a must stop for breakfast. We always try to stay away from chain restaurants, buy local.

We always try to eat in locally-owned establishments when traveling so after driving up Lookout Mountain we stopped here. They are only open until 2:00 but it seems to be a favorite of locals and tourists alike. Great coffee and a casual, friendly atmosphere.
