We finished a bike ride in Frisco and looked for a place for lunch. Butterhorn is right on Main, 2 blocks from the bus stop. The food looked great and the TA reviews encouraged us to try it. We were lucky to get a table outside at 2:00 (they close at 2:30 & are busy right up to the end).... More

Keep in mind they are only open until 2:30. We ate lunch and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. Every meal had large portions and the drink of choice was their amazing ice coffee that included free refills.

Our family started our trip to Colorado with breakfast at the Butterhorn Bakery and Cafe. The portions were huge so you might consider sharing! I ordered the Frisco - poached eggs, ridiculously fresh avocado, and a special fire-roasted pepper sauce on a freshly baked croissant. It was served with home fries. Yum. My daughter had one pancake with fruit and... More

Best breakfast in Frisco with family. Large yummy portions. Definitely worth the wait that is normal unless you get there very early. So be patient and be rewarded

Great food. Best biscuits & gravy I ever had. Cinnamon rolls are a great take home treat for later:) Outdoor seating and quick service.

Whole grain pancakes with real maple syrup (in a pitcher not a tiny paper cup!)...granola made on site with fresh fruit...such a few speciality items on a long and varied breakfast menu. All the breads are made in-house so it's hard to go wrong on any of those. Feel free to visit the bakery case as you leave. Pick up... More

A friend friend and I ate lunch at the Butterhorn Bakery. Though service was good, I was surprised that they served delicious sandwiches on such crappy, poor quality bread. I had a Turkey Cranberry sandwich that would have been delicious expect the poor quality bread fell apart while eating. Such a shame to cut corners like this.

Great food. We did take out because the line to eat inside was out the door and down the street. Breakfast Burritos, muffins and cookies were awesome.

Ate here once for breakfast and once for lunch and those items were good. Expect to pay a little more because you are on the main drag here. The pastry and baked items we had were not good. Closest comparison here is dessert items at a Chinese Buffet. They look good , but that's about it. Eclairs were dry and... More

We were in Frisco to shop. It's a great little town, much more pleasant in Breckenridge. It was a busy day but we were seated quickly. Strongly recommend you sit outside if it's crowded because the tables in the restaurant were very close together and it was quite noisy. On the other hand sitting outside on a nice day in... More
