Breakfast, Lunch and Artisanal Pastries

Windy Saddle’s menu has something for everyone. Hearty, healthy, or topped with bacon – you decide. From scratch, start to finish, but most importantly, made with love!

The Freshest Cup in Town 

Windy Saddle Café has been fueling Golden since 2007. We pride ourselves in using only the finest (many locally sourced) ingredients, impeccable customer care, and premium, sustainable, fair, small-batch roasted coffee. Our café is cozy, welcoming, and busy.
We look forward to serving you!



The Bakeshop

Our Windy Saddle Bake Shop proudly creates and serves up fresh pastries daily. Our repertoire includes pies, quiche, cakes, cinnamon rolls, puff pastry, bars, cookies, scones, and muffins – to name a few! We offer vegan and gluten-free options daily (but are not a dedicated GF/V kitchen). Our GF flours are made in-house. You will not find a better Gluten Free (or gluten-full!) pastry on this side of the divide.

H.A. - Local Guide

“Really great little coffee and sandwich shop in Golden Colorado. Nice selection of drinks (both with and without coffee). Good menu with lots of healthy options. Staff is super friendly. A good amount of outdoor seating."

C.G. - Local Guide

"The Windy Saddle is a great cafe in downtown Golden! It’s the perfect place to go on a rainy day and chill out with coffee and a house soup. They make really great breads and smoothies as well! They’re also one of the only cafes I’ve been to with a designated children’s play area. Definitely a spot worth popping into while in Golden."


“Great atmosphere and good food! They had a vegan & gluten free blueberry coffee cake I could have, I was so happy! Very accommodating of my food allergies!

When you can’t swing by for a cup, have a backup!


Golden’s Windy Saddle Café is proud to partner with OZO Coffee, based in Boulder, CO. Our coffee arrives freshly roasted each week to provide the highest quality beans for in-house brewing and for you to enjoy at home or share with someone else. OZO is committed to sourcing organic, ethically and sustainably grown coffees worldwide. OZO Coffee, like Windy Saddle Café, was founded in 2007, and both share the common mission of unmatched quality, impeccable service, community, and giving back.
