“Adorable, Quaint and Delicious”
Review of The Frothy Cup

The Frothy Cup
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$2 - US$10
Description: The Frothy Cup is an independent coffee roaster of premium, estate grown specialty coffee. We offer single origin and blended Fair Trade Organic and Rainforest Alliance coffee as well as home made fresh baked bakery goods, breakfast burritos and healthy smoothies. Located in the historic Zeller building built in 1885, the location at 1510 Miner Street in downtown Idaho Springs has been a coffee roasting business for over 25 years. In December 2014 Glenda and Randy Watson purchased the business and renamed it The Frothy Cup. We offer our guests a warm and comfortable, home-like environment where anyone can enjoy what we believe is the best coffee and espresso they have ever had, as well as baked goods and smoothies made with mostly organic and non-GMO ingredients.

Stopped at The Frothy Cup on our way up the mountain and fell in love with the quirky ambiance, puzzles sprawled out for each traveler to add to while they drink their coffee or pass the time and delicious coffee. Staff was friendly, bagel hit the spot and parking was not difficult. Love Idaho Springs and hope this place is around for a long time!

Vintage decor and welcoming atmosphere. Add great coffee and you have a winner! Stopped in the afternoon on the way up to the mountains. Had a variety of hot drinks--all terrific. A couple was putting together a puzzle at the next table and having a great time. I can imagine one could come relax at The Frothy Cup and come away refreshed and ready for whatever's next.

We stumbled in here for coffee, and we figured we'd have to go somewhere else for breakfast. We were wrong. First, the coffee was excellent, and mine had homemade whipped cream on it. Yum. They roast their own beans and it shows. Looking more closely at the menu, we discovered quiches and breakfast burritos. I had the broccoli and cheddar quiche, which was good,but my wife's pork green chile burrito was the best we've every had. It had huge chunks of pork and the heat was just right. We definitely will return.

This cute place has everything unique and yummy. Try the spicy chai, which was excellent and creamy. Lots of choices in a funky cute place. The service was good too.

Nice, cute little place in the beautiful, historic old town. Great coffee, excellent baked goodies, and very friendly + professional service (Michele was awesome). Will be back next time through.
