I had the ruben sandwich with coleslaw for lunch. Nice place for breakfast or lunch. The salads look good here too. I would come back!

Stopped at this cute cafe for breakfast. They have baked goods as well as some regular breakfast items. I ordered the quiche but they were out. I decided to go with a bagel and scrambled eggs with cheese. The bagel was barely toasted and there was no cheese on the eggs. By the time I was able to get some... More

Enjoyed jumbo-sized blueberry pancakes & great coffee. A cute spot right around the corner from the Table Mountain Inn

I went to Golden over the weekend and stopped at Cafe 13 for brunch. I was pleasantly surprise about this place. The food, ambiance and service were all pretty good.

I love the atmosphere here. Its definitely a local eatery. Lots of biking people come in and the motif is biking in the main area. They have delicious baked goods and a reasonable selection of other drinks besides coffee. They have a very nice menu for lunch as well. I mostly go for lunch and coffee, purposefully, when I lived... More

My wife and I, along with two friends, spent the last week in Golden. On the first morning the four of us walked into town along the river to have breakfast at Cafe 13. The pastries were fresh and delicious as usual, but my personal favorite is the pancakes. They are so light and fluffy. I've never had a meal... More

We had egg, ham and cheese croissants and iced tea. Both items were prepared to order and were good. Service was efficient. If you're looking for a quick and reasonable place to eat breakfast in Golden this is your place.
