Leadville is a town of only so many horses, or in this case donkeys, golden donkeys.
The Golden Burro is one of those greasy spoon diners that exists only in places like Leadville. A once strong mining economy probably filled the seats at The Golden Burro, but now it's the attendees of yuppie endurance bike races like The Leadville 100, but hey, I guess that's why I'm here too.
Anyway, the donkey paraphernalia meets bacon and eggs was one of my highlights in Leadville. After spending days trying to find a good cup of coffee this place hit the spot.
