Was here about a year ago and several times in past years and still manages to excel in both service and food. Only drawback is limited restroom facilities but the place is so very popular. Super pastries with most available to go as well.

Arrived at the Butterhorn on Friday morning after driving out from Denver. For a Louisiana girl this was a feat! Lovely atmosphere in town and a pleasant walk from a convenient and free parking spot on Main Street. There was a 15 minute wait for a seat inside (outside seats were available but was a bit chilly). Thoroughly enjoyed the... More

This place is great for breakfast and lunch. The food is always good and the service is great. It is very popular, so there will probably be a wait. The portions are large, so you could probably share a meal, which is what we do. Give it a try.

Stopped by late morning/early afternoon to have breakfast after a long hike. Waitress was great! We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful mountains. Food was very good!

Early morning walk to bring home the pastry for the family. Fortunately, got there early enough to get the last of 3 different pastries (Almon Croissant, Chocolate Croissant, and Sticky Bun). I can see why they go so fast. Delicious!!!!!! Also tried the ham and cheese and the Apple Croissant. Both were equally as good. Can't wait to try their... More

Had breakfast at this delightful place!! The portions were huge but we managed to eat it all!! Gets busy but worth the wait! If weather permits sit outside and enjoy the sites of Frisco, a charming town , and the mountains of Colorado!

We were staying in Frisco and had two meals at the Butter horn Bakery. I had the Egg Bread french toast with fresh fruit and my sisters had the fritatas. Both are amazing! We enjoyed the Mimosas and their Bloody Mary's were also good. Our server Santiago was very attentive, despite the fact that both times we visited it was... More

Very good lunch spot along with baked goods. Thai chicken wrap was awesome! Chef salad was huge! Tomato basil soup was also very good. We grabbed a couple of large, soft fresh-baked cookies to go and we weren't disappointed.
