Been visiting CB for well over a decade and this was our first visit. In spite of all of the other wonderful CB restaurants this one is also worth a visit. The Tibetan soups my wife and I had hit the spot on a chilly night. The chai tea is also yummy. The article in 2016-17 winter visitors guide was... More

It's hard to find the perfect place (for me) in Crested Butte. Usually it's a choice of (a) the "order-from-the-counter" and find a table in a crowded restaurant, (b) bar-scene, or (c) too-high-priced "fine dining." The Sherpa Cafe is just the perfect blend of great food, great service, and great prices for a relaxed, sit-down meal with friends.

The café is a simple and intimate atmosphere. It is a small place, and at the time we visited it was not too crowded. We made small talk with other patrons sitting near by, as the seating is pretty close. The chai tea is perfection! The meals we enjoyed were top notch. It's not easy to avoid gluten and/or dairy...

Simple nepalese recipes but not a cosy place to be for a long lunch. Not the best experience for a group.

Indian cuisine is a dining-out staple for my family, and this restaurant has emerged as a new favorite. The food was excellent. From the appetizers to the Indian and Napalese main courses, everything was flavorful, fresh, and perfectly seasoned. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and the service was friendly and attentive. (My son said he'd give it six stars... More

After a wonderful day of skiing, it's time for a hot cup of Chi Tea. We recognize that this restaurant is under the leadership of new owners but we have been very pleased with the new owners. The restaurant is a wonderful place to eat. We like Saag with chicken. Their soup is also very good. Top it off with... More

Sherpa Cafe is a wonderful Family Restaurant and is a gift from Nepal to Crested Buttians and visitors. Pemba Sherpa and his family offer the best international taste of Nepal right off Elk Avenue at 3rd. Pemba is one of the Sherpas who have climbed to the top of Mt Everest - and more than one time. The Sherpa Cafe... More

As a group of 5, we each ordered something different and ended up sharing because it was all so good! Very reasonably priced, for Crested Butte.

Sherpa adds a new flavor to the CB scene, and that's no small accomplishment. If you're in the area, try it, you'll like it.
