Whenever we pass through Leadville we always stop at City on a Hill Coffee & Espresso. Nice place to grab a latte and breakfast burrito or a nice pastry. Staff very friendly.

Get your caffeine fix at this popular stop that offers many pastries and sweets - some gluten-free. Peruse many laser-carved wood items featuring the local topography and ski areas.

We stopped for lunch after reading the reviews on Yelp and I'm glad we did! I had the basil and mozzarella with coleslaw and my wife had the turkey and a salad. She's not that into "sandwiches" but really liked it. I was in heaven though! Both the sandwich and that awesome slaw were excellent. The cappuccino and hot chocolate... More

Stopped in here just before going on my snowmobiling adventure. They're coffee is something special! Also many of their baked items were fresh, particularly their scones and muffins. I also would recommend their chocolate chip cookies! There's also free wi-fi which is great if you have the time to sit and enjoy a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate.

Thank Steve Y
