Red Chilaqules at Blue River Bistro

Blue River Bistro is best known for their 2-for-1 martini happy hour, but this gem is also a great brunch pick on weekends. If you’re here for a weekend trip you’re in luck–you’ll find a brunch menu along with some of the signature drinks served during happy hour. 

What To Order: We love the Red Chilaquiles and a Spicy Maria for a south of the border experience.

Hangover Burrito at Columbine Cafe

2. Columbine Café | Website 

Ask any local and they’ll say Columbine Café is their favorite spot for brunch. Columbine is not in an obvious spot–tucked between buildings off Main Street–but once you find it, you’ll want to keep going back. This no-nonsense haunt has breakfast dishes hearty enough to fuel you for the entire day. 

What To Order: The Hangover Burrito is made for those with a big appetite or hangover like the name suggests. This breakfast staple is stuffed with house smoked chunky corn beef hash and smothered with pork green chili.  

Hours: 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. daily 

Brunch at BoLD

3. BoLD | Website 

If you’re looking for a true brunch spot that serves up Beermosas and DIY mimosas, BoLD is your spot. This Mediterranean-inspired restaurant is nestled at the south end of Breckenridge just steps from the Quicksilver Chairlift and endless shopping options.  

What To Order: For a spicy breakfast, try the Moroccan Baked Eggs. The perfect blend of sweet and savory does exist with the Chicken and Waffles Benedict with a bourbon cayenne maple hollandaise.  

Hours: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily 

4. Blue Moose | Website 

This family-run restaurant has a casual and friendly atmosphere that welcomes you in and gives you a warm hug. Blue Moose offers a slew of morning cocktails and home cooked breakfast options. As a bonus they have a dog-friendly patio so you can bring your furry friend on a warm day! 

What To Order: We love a classic breakfast here. Opt for the Two Biscuits & Sausage Gravy served with home fries or grits paired with a cup of organic coffee from Breck Coffee Roasters.

Do not leave this brunch spot off your list. Cabin Juice is an elevated eatery that utilizes ingredients from small, local farms around Colorado. They offer a chic, cabin atmosphere with savory and healthy brunch options.
