They are known for their breakfast burrito, spicy hot. I got the eggs benedict, with potatos. Coffee is watery.. staff is fast and pleasant. Needs a renovation 20 years ago, but prices are great, most breakfast items are 9.95.

The Mountain Lyon Cafe had the most delicious breakfast we had on our vacation to Silverthrone / Copper Mountain! Our hotel had frozen donuts and a few bread and cereal choices, but the Mountain Lyon Cafe had amazing omelettes and pancakes!!! My friend got the eggs Benedict and she thought it was delicious! Our waitress was friendly and attentive, it... More

The food was really good! Stopped on our way to Keystone. I think this is going to be our new lunch spot when we are out here for skiing. Fast and friendly service.

You know the drill. Get up early, skip breakfast and try to beat the I-70 traffic. It's useless, but the light at the end of the tunnel is the Mountain Lyon Cafe for breakfast. We always enjoy everything we get there and the service is great. Love it!

This is one of my 'must stop at' breakfast places any time I'm in Silverthorne, Dillon or Breckinridge. Everything I've ever ordered has been delicious and the staff are alway friendly. A bit rushed... but friendly none-the-less. This place almost always has a wait, but it's well worth it. Best breakfast joint in the area!

I don't usually give out five point ratings, as I think the average ratings on this website tend to be too high. But this place does what it is very well. It serves up old time café food with friendly service at reasonable prices. The booths are very worn, the floor is not particularly clean, and the décor is a... More

And for all we know, a great lunch...but our direct experience was breakfast, Our first time was so wonderful we returned the next day. The banana nut pancakes are my personal favorite, but our son tucked into the western style eggs and sausage with great enthusiasm - and as others have noted, the prices are reasonable, and the service is...
