Welcome back. We’ve missed you!

We are excited to have guests return to our dining room. Chef Ron has been whipping up some fabulous menus, and we’ve made some changes to improve the dining experience for our guests.

Things will be a little different. Here’s what to expect.

Reservations are no longer needed. Simply show up on the days you choose to join us. If we reach capacity in the dining room, you can take your meal to go.

Lunch is no longer served at a set time each day. You are welcome to join us anytime between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm for lunch. The dining room will be closed at 1:00 pm each day, and guests will be required to leave the dining room at that time.

We have switched to a cafe dining experience. This means you will need to check in with the host when you arrive.  The host will then escort you to a seat. Meals and drinks will be delivered to your table.

To ensure that everyone feels welcome and included at the Coal Creek Café, we will be seating guests at community tables. The host will seat you at an available chair at a community table when you arrive. We can’t save seats for your friends, so you need to have the friends you want to sit by with you when you approach the host. You are welcome to wait in the lobby for friends to arrive.

Guests can choose from two entree options each day or an entree Chef’s salad. We will have gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options available each day, but we won’t be able to cater to every dietary restriction. If you have questions about menu options and dietary restrictions, please call us at 303-665-0566.

You can take your meal to go. If you’re not quite ready to eat in the dining room, feel free to swing by and order a meal to go from the host stand. We will package your food in to-go containers and send you on your way.

We will continue to request a suggested donation of $3.50 per meal for our guests over 60 years old. Guests under 60 are welcome to join us for $6 per meal. We will request your donation at the end of the meal. The Coal Creek Café is generously funded in part by the City of Lafayette, but their support doesn’t cover the full cost of our meals. We appreciate your support in paying what you can afford for your meals.
