“Great Mexican Mocha and Great Breakfast”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We stopped here twice during our time in Lyons. The coffee was great, food was wonderful, service was friendly, and there is a great play area if you have small children. I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs a little caffeine or just a short break in the day.

“Yum! A great breakfast spot!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Good news vegetarians & vegans, you can get your tofu scramble here! They also have a couple of veg sandwich options. We've been here several times, and most recently last weekend. The staff is friendly and the vibe is pretty darn warm in there. We had the veggie sandwich and tofu scramble. Neither knocked our socks off, but they were both pretty good. We'll definitely be back again.

“Good food/drink. Happy with the newer restaurant section.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Previously, The Stone Cup was predominantly a smoothie/coffee shop. They've expanded to open a kitchen and the food has been good. Note that this isn't a "full service" establishment; it is the kind of place where you order at the counter, pay, and then wait for your order to be completed. The menu is comprehensive enough and really tastes very good. I'd worry about delays with larger parties; you can see that the kitchen is small and typically staffed with only one or two people.

I do like sitting outside in the mornings, and the smoothie/coffee side of the restaurant has large garage doors that open up to make you feel like you are outside when ordering at the counter. Also, outside, is a small play area / sandbox that is fun for small children.

There's so much to look and do at around this restaurant as well. They rotate artists designs in the restaurant portion, and they have a wall of books and board games for you to relax with friends. My favorite item at the place is actually out in the parking lot - a sign about people who leave their cars in the parking lot will get a new paint job from the elementary school up the street. Funny stuff.

In summary, Stone Cup is a quirky little place with good food and drink that lets you relax. Here's their website if you want to preview: http://www.thestonecup.com/

Lastly, my tips for breakfast are to get the burrito. If you want to keep it cheaper, I like to get the breakfast sandwich and then add on an 18 oz smoothie.

Great little breakfast stop on our way to Estes park. Full menu and even able to sit outside. Organic coffee was delicious and the meal was excellent.
