We landed in Denver, flying in from Atlanta, around 7:00am and were starving. We opted to wait until we passed through Golden to eat at Cafe 13. Everything we ordered was great! I had pancakes and coffee. It was worth the 30-minute wait!

I have been here 4 times now. Last time I had my parents, 2 brothers and a sis in law with. We all liked our food. Small place with somewhat limited seating. Overall worth a visit.
