Great breakfast in CB!

Had a family breakfast here one morning. Really good food and service. I would like to go back and have lunch or dinner. The French toast was very good, fresh fruit bowls, real maple syrup and friendly service!

My friend and I visited for brunch before an afternoon wedding. The address listed is old, it has actually moved to 6th. So after some wondering around on Elk and speaking with a friendly stranger, we finally located the restaurant. I ordered huevos rancheros, which is a favorite of mine, and it disappointed. The green chili had large pieces of... More

They have been here and there - but they have a following - I like the hawaiian pancake with fruit - Everything is superb - the best in town. AND I have tried them all. McGills is great for early risers - opens at... More

We are here in the off season, went to Paradise for brunch - Wait Staff were very nice and helpful, knew their stuff, too. Huevos Rancheros for me and Biscuits and Gravy for my wife. Both were very very good! Could easily have shared either dish and been full. We will return!

One of my favorite eateries in Crested Butte. I have only been for breakfast but I do go everyday for breakfast! Everything is fantastic and it's a great place to meet the locals and get a fantastic meal!

Looking for a breakfast spot where you can have hot Polish sausage with your pancakes? This is it. Just kidding. Although that was my choice and it was great. My wife had the blueberry pancakes and they were awesome. This was our second trip to CB. Make the walk uptown to this spot and you may be overwhelmed by the... More

Small place, but amazing food and service. Only place I visited twice while in Crested Butte. Huevos Rancheros were amazing. This place is a must! Right off the main road and bus line.
