Wait if you must, it is entirely worth it!! Everything on the menu is prepared fresh and tastes delicious. We will drive out of the way to stop here for food and very friendly service.

Twin Rivers is a required stop for breakfast when we go flyfishing the Frying Pan every year for a few days. The breakfast burrito with pork green chile, potatoes and grits and toast will have you finishing every bite and no need to even think about lunch. Top it off with one of their great Bloody Marys and you have... More

The Two Rivers Cafe opens earlier than any of the other sit-down breakfast restaurants on Midland Ave so if you are an early riser who wants a hot breakfast before 8:00 PM, this is a good choice. There are lots of interesting menu items to choose from but we stuck to the basics. My husband (born and raised in Louisiana)... More

Only had one item here but it was perfect--BLT with avocado. Perfect. Bacon was generous and crisp--tomato and lettuce crisp. Excellent service,

When with the wife and daughter for our first family breakfast in Colorado and we were happy with the start of the day! The cinnamon swirl pancake special was sweet and awesome! Our little one really enjoyed the sausage too

I have eaten at Two Rivers for years and I can honestly tell you they have one of the best in the valley for breakfast. The eggs benedict (weekends only) with a great mimosa is the best - If you have been out partying and have a hangover - this is the place to fill your tummy and get back... More

They keep the coffee coming and breakfast portions are huge and flavorful get the half order of the huevos and attempt to finish it! Sauce is flavor and the tortilla arrives warm and slightly toasty. Can't eat this way everyday, but come here to fuel up before hiking or biking!

Sat outside on a cool evening with friends and enjoyed the sound of the Frying Pan River adjacent to the back porch, and had great food in a very casual atmosphere without feeling rushed. Worth the stop-over in Basalt for sure.

Dropped in for lunch. Least expensive meal we had during our trip to Snowmass. Food was really well prepared, service was excellent, and the atmosphere was typical small town café.
