Fodor's Review

Locals kick off their mornings with a pit stop at this joint near the Gondola One lift to grab a cup of java and a breakfast burrito—scrambled eggs, roast potatoes, cheddar cheese, and applewood smoked bacon (you can get them wrapped to go). The service is quick and there's a simple but decent range of baked goods, fresh fruit, and organic options. The cobbled patio with a picnic table is a great place to enjoy a sandwich for lunch and during winter the inside is decorated with evergreen trimmings like a Tyrolean bistro.
