We stopped in at City on a Hill coffee shop. We had an espresso and a cappuccino. Both were excellent and hit the spot. We also bought some of their roasted coffee beans. The staff were very friendly and helpful!

We stopped by for a snack and hot beverage on our way back to Frisco, after visiting the dog sledding adventure tour. The snacks are delicious, the coffee and tea is too and the atmosphere uniquely amazing!

We came here last year and had not stopped talking about this great little coffee shop. The most important part of our conversation was the cinnamon rolls. We got another one today and again.... these are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had!

Visiting Leadville for a brief skiing escape from FL. The City quickly became both my day-starter and day-ender (pre-dinner) location. Very helpful staff, obviously good house coffees and pastries. Nice setting for relaxing and chatting with "fellow beaners". Made my visit very enjoyable.

I was in Leadville for work and City on a Hill was the perfect spot to grab a quick breakfast burrito and coffee before a long day outside.

This is your typical coffee bar with free wifi. They apparently usually serve food, but the day we were there they were not.

This cute mountain cafe has it all. A fun place to sit with a beverage or feast on great food. A perfect day is to eat here and then visit Melanzana.

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.
