“The Crown Café and Tavern – You’ve noshed your way through happy hour, you’re too full for dinner, but you want something more before facing traffic down the mountain. Head to Breckenridge’s Crown Café for a cozy dessert place that’s good for the whole family. Filled with overstuffed couches, two fireplaces, and a mahogany bar, the tiny treasure offers everything from a glass of port or a cup of great coffee to hand-dipped ice cream and a pastry case filled with delectable sweet treasures. For moments when your sweet tooth talks louder than your conscious, head to the Crow Café for a fabulous quick fix”
I was shocked to find out that while I purchased restaurants.com gift certificates on January 1st and when I tried to use them on January 2nd, they told me "they stopped taking them on December 31st". Rather than accepting them and contacting restaurants.com, I was told "we have spoken to them many times and they have not fixed it". I in turn contacted restaurants.com who informed me that their relationship with Crown Cafe & Tavern was still in place and that they should not reject the cards, but the damage has been done. It is sad that a restaurant looking to drive business would treat their customers this way. When I asked for a manager, I was told "there are no managers available". Save yourself a headache - there are many other great places in Breckenridge ... give them your business.
The Crown Cafe in Breckenridge is my favorite coffee shop in the state, if not in the country. The food is good, the coffee is great, the liquor menu, gourmet desserts, and ice-cream options are perfect. But what makes The Crown Cafe superior is the atmosphere . . . warm, relaxing, cozy. It makes you feel like you just walked into a lived-in living room and you just want to curl up on the couch and read a book while sipping some tea.
