Best Green Chili in Summit County

The breakfast burritos are amazing. Best Green Chili in Summit county. Sometimes the service can take a few extra minutes. I think they're making each breakfast item custom in the kitchen - but worth the wait for fresh, hot, awesome breakfast. The baked goods are incredible. Good coffee, latte... read more

Small coffee shop with a great menu. I ended up ordering hot apple cider and Lani had hot tea. Both were excellent. Fun ambiance but they close at 4pm so hard to understand the logic of a coffee shop that closes just as everyone comes off the mountain

Almost missed this gem! Down a side street off the main drag. Healthy choices - no greasy breakfasts here! I had oatmeal with fruit but my husband had their crustless quiche and buttered croissant. He gave me a bite - fabulous!

Also ordered a hot chocolate for the kiddo and some snacks. It's pricey ($16 for 2 drinks and a nosh...no kids hot chocolate size to save $$) but the coffee is great. My only complaint is that my medium latte was about 2/3 full. Wasn't in the mood to point it out but I will when I come back the... More

Been here a few times. Everything is extraordinarily delicious (even something as simple as grilled cheese, hot chocolate, etc.). Today we went for lunch - not sure staff is always this unfriendly or today was just a bad day. Lady was short with us, and when you order there is a tip line. I didn't tip her (because i tip...

Sort of tucked away, but worth looking for. Very friendly and has a cool laid back vibe. We enjoyed the breakfast wrap (almost too much to eat) and the quiche. It was one of the bright spots in Breck where you got your money's worth and a great meal.

In search of hot chocolate in Breckenridge while shopping, we happened past this lovely coffee shop and bakery. They had an endless selection of hot chocolate choices and they were all wonderful. They offered milk alternatives, steamed the kids hot chocolate to a lower temperature than the adults, and even had local beer in the cooler. A sign advertised 9.00... More

Friendly service and delicious options for any kind of coffee you desire. I tried the toasted almond latte... so good! Perfect amount of sweetness with the espresso jolt I needed. If ya need a mid-day pick-me-up, stop here!
