This restaurant is our go-to for breakfast when we spend the night in Idaho Springs. They have just about everything you could want. The coffee is good, the food is average but tasty. The wait staff is so-so. This morning she got my toast wrong but that's just minor. For the most part, I will recommend this one.

OH MY! So, the items on the menu may not be considered for "clean eating" but we ate breakfast here both mornings we were in town. OH SO GOOD, their green chili is fantabulous. We had 2 different waitresses and both of them were FANTASTIC! Everyone that worked there was friendly, nice and smiled! We will make it a point... More

We got into town too early to call family in need of coffee! What a delight to stumble onto this gem. Coffee was great, staff was super, food was perfect!

Great portions of homemade breakfast foods! It's a dilemma because at Marion's they make great EVERYTHING. If you like green chili, go for a breakfast burrito! If you love Eggs Benedict then have them at Marion's. You cannot go wrong with the biscuits and gravy either! I have only had breakfast at Marion's but I am sure lunch is great... More

Marion's of the Rockies has been around... it seems forever. It is a local's favorite because of the old fashioned comfort, homemade delicious food and friendly service. They don't serve dinner, but open at 6am every day which is convenient for travelers who want to get an early start. Seating Mon-Th is until 2:30 and on weekends until 3pm. My... More

Apparently, this is a favorite place for locals and regular tourist to stop for a meal. The staff was very friendly and helpful but it took over 30 minute to get our lunch order. While the food was good, just don't be in a hurry especially when they are busy.

After a week+ of vacationing and eating in Idaho Springs this is our #1 pick. The service was great. Lots of food for the money. Best of all was that the food was super delicious! This is not a chain, but a great little local restaurant.

Marion's has all the great aspects of a breakfast spot that we look for, cute & cozy atmosphere, friendly service and great home-cooked food. Definitely our new favorite place to take a Sunday drive to!

On our way to hike in Breckenridge we just popped in the Marion's for breakfast because there were a bunch of cars out front. As we were walking in we saw that these enormous cinnamon rolls up front that we had to try. My wife and girls could not stop with the moaning in delight until the entire thing was... More
