“Great breakfast”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped by on a whim for breakfast and weren't disappointed. Portions were huge and service was quick. I only knocked them down a circle due to the dated decor and mess of dirt on the front steps.

“Always good”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I frequent this place a lot. If your hungry and want a good quick breakfast this is the place. Looks and feels like a locals hang out but the words out. On the weekends many out of towners come here to eat. Best of all they have real coffee (not foo foo) :)

“Duct tape”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you can get past the decor, ie duct taped stools, you will see why this place is so popular. The parking lot is packed every morning with working men pickup trucks. The breakfasts are the best in my opinion. My favorite is the green chili eggs. The staff is always friendly and the service is great.

“fooled by the reviews”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

My spouse and I were in Silverthorne doing some shopping and were looking for a good place to eat. Mountain lyon cafe had the best reviews in the area so we decided to try it out. the food was good and at a decent price but we left hungry still.The service was basic; took our order, brought our food and check. they didn't ask if we wanted anything else the whole time. the place isn't bad but I expected more from the reviews...

“Fabulous and Hearty Breakfast”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We found this little gem while going up for a snow-mobile tour. It is a quaint little diner with fantastic food in huge quantities and amazingly flaky fresh hot biscuits. We had about forty minutes waiting time when we arrived on a Saturday morning at 10:00. It was totally worth the wait. Coffee was very good, and the crowd was a fun bunch of folks from all over. There is limited waiting room inside so dress warmly and huddle together outside or find a post inside to lean against and do some people watching!
