“Funnel cake Goodness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My son is the funnel cake expert and he titled this one. His funnel cake was made fresh to order and the young lady took care to put plenty of his favorite powdered sugar on it. The smell of the things cooking drew quite the crowd off the street to enjoy them. He loved it! Nice staff AND great product

“Funnel Cake Heaven in Silverton Colorado”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

In my humble opinion, funnel cakes are delish, so naturally I sought out Rocky Mountain Funnel Cakes while on a recent motorcycle tour of southwestern Colorado. The most recent owner of Rocky Mountain has had the place for about 3 years or so, and seems committed to making an excellent treat! The day I was there he and his staff, which is family, were turning out these wonder treats by the dozens, and doing it with laughter and fun.

Why are the funnel cakes here so delicious? Perhaps it is the altitude at which they are baked, nearly 10,000 feet? Whatever the secret is, the funnel cakes here are light and crispy, not the typical greasy heavy ones you find at fairs, etc.

My favorite is the simple powdered sugar and cinnamon, but you can order them with all kinds of toppings as well.

Don't forget to wash your funnel cake down with an ice cold glass of cherry limeade. Remember, it's important to stay hydrated in the mountains! :)

Rocky Mountain Funnel Cakes in located right in the middle of "downtown" Silverton. Make it your stop when you are visiting this incredibly beautiful are of southwestern Colorado!

“Fresh, fluffy funnel cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

My kids begged for a funnel cake, so after we ate BBQ at thee Pitts (we were stuffed) we walked down and bought the traditional funnel cake. My kids loved watching them being made and even though we were full, we ate it all because it was so good and fresh! Also found the owners very friendly...which makes sense because they are texans!

“Rocky Mountain Sugar High!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The pralines and cream funnel cake is the best!!!! Also, the cherry lime-aid is worth coming back for alone.
