“Best Breakfast in Gunnison”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

The Firebrand is the locals place to go on a weekend morning. Although the menu is small, what they offer is top notch! Our daughters love their belgium waffles smothered in real maple syrup, bananas, yogurt and whip cream. My husband prefers the breakfast special loaded with turkey, green chilis, mushrooms and provolone cheese. My breakfast pick varies from their sweet potato porridge to a veggie scramble (not on the menu officially but if its not busy they are happy to oblige). Lunch menu is also delicious with unique sandwiches and homemade soups. Bring cash or check b/c credit cards are not accepted.

“Great sandwiches!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2011

We stopped in Gunnison en route from Silverton to Frisco. We asked a local where we should have lunch, which is how we got to the Firebrand. We're glad we did. The sandwiches were absolutely delicious & freshly made. We wisely decided to share one between 2 as they are huge.

We had a couple of local beers to wash them down, absolute heaven.

Highly recommended.

“Great neighborhood sandwich shop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

Firebrand has the best Reuben! They have a wonderful selection of other sandwiches too. It can get crowded and have long waits at lunch hour. There's not a lot of seating, at least not enough for their high demand!

“Good Lunch Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2010

A quick stop for lunch on the way to Crested Butte. Sandwiches are large and freshly made. Sides are pointless and I should have noticed that you can order without them – plainly written on the menu but I missed it. Large variety, friendly staff, and prompt service – all with in a half hour before the lunch closing time. Recommended.

“Great Sandwiches!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2008

I am in and out of the Gunnison area regularly, and I never miss a chance to go to Firebrand's for a sandwich. There are many to choose from, so you won't go wrong. The folks are friendly, and you'll love their unusual collection of dolls at the counter. Don't miss it.
