The other three people with me liked the restaurant more than I did, but it was a matter of preference, not poor performance by the restaurant. Went there for a late breakfast, maybe a little hungover. They had several spicy shrimp and grits dishes and...More

We had lunch there after our morning hike. A charming restaurant in the heart of Golden Colorado. We loved the spicy lemonade and iced Snickerdoodle coffee that started our meal off. We enjoyed our lunch of Catfish and red beans and rice. The gumbo was...More

Huge portions! The beignets are fantastic. Order the deep fried eggs with buffalo hash! So yummy. One entree for two is plenty especially if you want beignets too

I.Love.Breakfast. With very little breakfast options in Golden, we tried Sassafras. Their breakfast menu is a combined with lunch which we found a little strange. The French toast and biscuits with gravy were very average. The eggs were very buttery. The coffee is a dark...More
