We were staying in Dillon, at the Best Western and this Cafe is right on the corner of the property. We went early and the dining room was near empty but if filled up while we were eating. The pub is downstairs and we could tell that a lot of folks were having a good time. I ordered a burger... More

My husband and I spent a week in Dillon CO in August. We ate breakfast at the Arapahoe every morning just so we could try everything on their breakfast menu. The granola pancakes were great. Even their oatmeal was amazing. The cafe is also open for lunch and the couple of times we ate lunch there, it was great. In... More

This is a little gem in Dillon. The breakfast here can't be beat. Everything, from the granola pancakes, the corned beef hash, and the tamales is fantastic. I can't pick my favorite. We only ate lunch here one day, but the grilled cheese and tomato soup was better than mom's. The servers attitudes vary but the good food makes up... More

Had a good meal outside. The first waitress that sat us wasn't very friendly. The one we got, she said she was new, was very nice. I had the granola pancakes. They were very good with the exception of the coconut. The description of the pancakes did not state it had coconut. The rest of my family enjoyed them. My... More

Heard raves about this cafe so we dropped in for late breakfast. We arrived at 10:50 and breakfast ends at 11, and our hostess said we could still order from a limited breakfast menu but no lunch orders would be prepared until all breakfast orders were served. Confusing but we were ordering from the limited breakfast menu to get huevos... More

No ramp to get to bathroom: had to wait to go to Wendy's. Excuse was "This is an old, historic building." Well, so is Stroud's in Kansas City, which is handicap friendly. We ate outside on deck. Beautiful August day, beautiful flowers, trees. Enjoy while healthy.
