French press coffee for my husband!

My husband brews French press coffee at home and it is hard to find on vacation. Yes, it was enough for two but I am a tea drinker. I had a wonderful pot of green tea. We had a late breakfast. Don't turn vegetarian until after you have had the pear sausage patties. I am not even a fresh pork... read more

Breakfast was my favorite meal at Backbone, the oatmeal is the very best I've ever had. It was a meal that stayed with me all am, and was very filling.Try it!

Always enjoy eating here. Had a great salad. My bro and sis-in- law raved about the meatloaf and breakfast. Fresh made bread and homegrown greens. The best is the chocolate chili pot. It's almost fudge with a hint of chili. I even bought their cookbook. Will be back.

The breakfast was so good we ordered lunch for take out. Not to be missed... definitely consider driving the Burr Trail which starts next to the restaurant.

I tried the tofu, vegetable plate. It was good tasting, but left my stomach a little unsettled through the evening. Service is excellent, but more pricey than we prefer.

Located at the junction of the Burr Trail in Boulder, UT, this eatery has local pies that are a real treat. The local grass fed burgers are good, too.

Delicious food, great service with young staff who knew all about the organic food. The owners have a farm and raise all their veggies there and you can taste the difference especially the farm raised eggs for breakfast. Don't miss the restaurant

Truly delicious, fancy, creative, but you can wear jeans comfortably in this artistic spot. Uses local, healthy-sourced meat, great vegetarian options, even better cocktails! Worth the $. Make a reservation! It can be more crowded than you'd expect...

For our 20th anniversary, we wanted a special dining experience. Hell's Backbone Grill has always been one of our favorite restaurants. We arrived without a reservation on a Wednesday, but we were able to be seated quickly. Our server was attentive and friendly. We ordered a bottle of wine and enjoyed warm corn biscuits with fabulous, fresh herb butter. We... More

The homemade items at this restaurant is worth a long drive. The blue corn pancakes and the homemade sausage was out of this world. The service was great: courteous and efficient. We will definitely be back for another meal.
