The Best Breakfast in Breckenridge According to Locals

I love living in Breckenridge! When I’m not in the office I can be found skiing, fly fishing or teaching yoga.

Breakfast in Breckenridge tastes better. Most of the local favorites offer great food and stunning views. Get out and wonder around town. Take in the sights and smells. Savor the food – it tastes better at elevation, I promise. Go ahead – sit next to the local, ask them about the next storm or their favorite trails to ski or bike… it’s amazing what we can learn over a cup of coffee.

BoLD

Located in the Village at the base of Peak 9 is BoLD! A relaxed place with reclaimed wood interior dishing out classic breakfasts. You will only be served cage free eggs, 100% pure organic maple syrup and their signature biscuits are freshly baked every morning. And there’s a build-your-own bloody mary bar! Menu items range from $10-$15.

Columbine Café

Located right on Main Street in the heart of Breckenridge, Columbine Café offers a traditional diner feel.  The menu features specialty items like trout and Eggs, their famous hangover burrito, Breck scramble and Salmon Benedict and a killer Bloody Mary. The portions and generous and the price is right. Menu items range from $8-$13 and a $5 kids menu is available.

Cuppa Joe

Off the beaten path, located on Ridge Street, just one block off Main is a hidden gem. Cuppa Joe prides themselves on their friendly, local staff and tasty drinks and treats. Try a Chemex, a pour-over style coffee, flat white, oatmeal latte, Bhakti chai or a Nutella mocha. Their food is generous in size and flavor, offering fresh ingredients, made to order. Try the smoked Salmon and goat cheese burrito, Vegan tofu burrito or a smoothie bowl. Menu items range from $2-$10.

Daylight Donuts

This cash-only, grab and go or dine in breakfast stop is located on the north side of Main Street. Donuts are made fresh daily and go great with a cup of their local coffee. Breakfast dishes such as biscuits and gravy, huevos rancheros, corned beef hash and more range from $4-$10!

Doma 1898

From the owners of Bread+Salt in Frisco, Doma1898 is a new American cuisine restaurant in Breckenridge that features fresh and innovative ingredients in a unique, historic setting. Try the Sunrise BLT (house made rustic bread, 1 scrambled egg, chimayo mayo,apple wood smoked bacon) or the Chipotle Port Benedict (two poached eggs, english muffin, roasted pork, house made chipotle hollandaise, hash browns). And you cant go wrong with the pa..pa..pa..pancakes! Breakfast menu items range from $4-$15.

The Blue Moose

Tucked in toward the south end of Main Street, The Blue Moose is serving up traditional breakfast options for a hungry crowd. The coffee is hot, the pancakes are stacked tall and the eggs are fluffy. There are a few options that may tempt the more adventurous foodies such as Mike’s Eggs Benedict – delicious and topped with crisp spinach, brie cheese, bacon, and creamy avocado, but sticking to the tried to true works here. The space tends to be busy, especially during ski season. Most folks are looking for a hearty start to their day. Menu items range from $2-$14. Please note: The Blue Moose is cash only.

Starbucks

Sometimes there is comfort in consistency. No matter where you are visiting, more often than not, your favorite white chocolate mocha or Frappuccino is just moments away. The Breckenridge Starbucks store on Main Street sits at 9,600 feet, making it the highest-elevation location worldwide. It doesn’t look like your run-of-the mill Starbucks. No line out the door, no drive-through and no, it’s not in a strip mall or grocery store parking lot. You might walk right pass the little yellow house the scent of fresh coffee hits your nostrils.  This little, yet mighty spot was named on the best Starbucks locations in the world by USA today.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Some folks need a cup of strong coffee to kick-start their day, others devour a healthy fruit and veggie smoothie, some need a pre-ski triple stack of pancakes with a side of bacon and those recovering from the night before are looking for a hearty breakfast burrito and a bloody Mary. Breckenridge has it all.
