This place is a little run down but locals rave about breakfasts. We tried their salads and were pleasantly surprised-- delicious Cobb with excellent server.

I can't go with all the reviews of excellent. Food is good as is the service, better than average but not excellent in my opinion. I thought that in general prices were just a bit on the high side. I had the Bisquets and gravy with eggs, it was OK but I've had better. If I go back I'll try... More

There aren't a lot of options for a sit down breakfast in my part of Boulder. Or any that were open before 10am. But a quick search of a five mile radius to our location sent us to Garden Gate Cafe. I am bummed that I just now came across this most excellent breakfast/brunch/lunch cafe. You will find your usual... More

Only open for breakfast and lunch, the Garden Gate offers good, down home dishes at reasonable prices. A casual eatery for locals and visitors, you will leave full, satisfied and taken care of. My personal favorite is their chicken salad sandwich. Yummy!!!

We visited the Celestial Seasoning Tea Factory in Boulder and upon the suggestion of one of the ladies here we took the short jaunt to the Garden Gate for Breakfast prior to our trip to Estes Park. What a local treat and what terrific food! The waitress was so nice..we didn't have to ask for anything she just instinctually knew... More

Our bicycle gang regularly rides from Longmont to Niwot to have breakfast at the incomparable Garden Gate Café. The service is good, the selections are extensive, and the prices quite reasonable. Their pancakes (especially the cranberry and marmalade) are so good the group orders some to share, and their egg dishes are always perfect. My sweetheart loves their fruit and... More

My brother and I stopped in for lunch after a hot and exhausting bike ride. It was just what we both needed. My brother thoroughly enjoyed the Classic Club and my Mile High sandwich was excellent; the avocado in both was the clincher! I would definitely be a regular if I lived in the area.

What a hidden gem this place is, nestled in a small strip mall in the quant town of Niwot. When you walk into the café it seems rather dark with only a couple of windows, but it is quite charming with a country atmosphere. Between each booth hangs an antique window pane, with old barn lumber affixed to the walls.... More
