Bountiful Breakfast!

Large selection of breakfast choices! We went for breakfast two times. The breakfast tacos were excellent and the breakfast burrito was huge and very spicy with a green chile sauce. They also serve lunch, but we were busy skiing, so we didn't make it there for lunch. The location was an old grocery... read more

Cool little old cafe, great comfort food but also trendy selections available. Excellent bison burger with a brew. You can watch the street activity if you sit at the window.

McGill's never disappoints me! "Amber" has been serving there for 8 1/2 years now and she is always on the top of her game. She is by far the best food server in Crested Butte. Jamie, the owner/operator, is one of the kindest business owners in the town of CB. Whether the place is jamming busy or quiet, the food... More

We ate breakfast at this restaurant and everything we ordered was great. The service was excellent and it was very crowded the day we went, but the service was not slighted. The staff is also very friendly here. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

The place is very sweet and the service was great. The food options were creative and well put together but the flavor just hit average and that was disappointing when everything else was great. The chicken on my salad tasted dry and no seasonings. The rest of my party agreed that the flavors were just mediocre.

there are a lot of quite strange places to eat in Crested Butte, but finding a traditional bacon & egg breakfast isn't so easy and we were pleased to be recommended this one on the main street having ascertained that the good place we used each day for hash 'n eggs on our last visit five years ago had gone....

Right on Elk St in the middle of CB, you will find this great spot. Twice we had breakfast here during our visit our 5 day visit to this absolutely cool and gorgeous town. Each time the food was really good. Service was very friendly and informative. One of best steak and egg breakfasts I have ever had. Just a... More

After 4 hard days of bike riding, this was the oasis for my tummy! Big, delicious breakfast served later in the day. Iced Tea and HOMEMADE PIE PEOPLE. Amazing. Great service at the counter - no wait to be seated. Get the pie.
