“Welcome to Cripple Creek, a historic gambling and mining town that’s one of the most dynamic and scenic tourism destinations in Colorado. The grandly restored Old West brick buildings along Bennett Avenue, surrounded by majestic mountains, boast nine unique state-of-the-art casinos, as well as great restaurants, shops, and hotels. The excitement that drove the Greatest Gold Rush Ever still lives, where treasure seekers and hooligans from near and far try their hands at poker, black jack, roulette, craps and slot machines with the highest casino paybacks in Colorado. The Narrow Gauge Railway between Cripple Creek & Victor is a favorite too.”

Restaurant
“The café is open 24 hours. The food is typical café fare at reasonable rates including their 49 cent breakfast. I have found their breakfast is the better meal served 24 hours a day. It is in Bronco Billy's Casino so families with children must enter the doors under the Home Café sign and go directly to the café. ”
