What a lovely coffee shop/restaurant with such a gorgeous view inside and outside! We went here for breakfast...I had a huge, yummy caramel roll and my husband had biscuits and gravy which he gave 5+ stars. They have an upstairs area for seating with tables or a couch. You have a view of the mine across the road. It is... More

We stopped here while passing through town in need of coffee and a lite breakfast---we were very pleased with the bagel and cream cheese selection as well as the coffee. We wished that we had more time to stop and eat so that we could enjoy the beautiful view. We'll be back again!

Coffee was excellent and flavorful. They are at a new location at the north end of town. The view off the deck is spectacular and the owner is extremely attentive to customers and detail. The breakfast panini was a tasty breakfast sandwich.

We went here during or vacation to Lead. We couldn't find the new coffee shop on google maps, but it is right across from the Sanford Lab Visitor's Center. We stopped in for a mocha and enjoyed the view overlooking downtown.

We looked around - the seating on the deck facing the Open Cut provides an awesome view. Inside the west facing window provide the same view but protected from the weather. The interior... More

We stopped here first thing in the morning for some breakfast and coffee! I got a panini, which was sooo delicious! Then we got some caramel rolls which we all loved! An iced vanilla latte to top it off was an amazing start to the morning! Definitely a must if you're in Lead!
