Off the Beaten Path Eats in Colorado’s Mountain Towns

Looking for a great Breakfast that is fast and filling? Look no further than these sweet stops off the beaten path in Steamboat Springs, Breckenridge and Crested Butte. All are fast but more importantly, delicious!


Steamboat Springs has a bevy of breakfast options available but if you’re up for driving 5 minutes west, past downtown Steamboat Springs, then you’re in for a treat. Sharon’s restaurant is a wonderful, off the beaten path cafe, serving up plate-sized blueberry pancakes, bacon roses…yes BACON ROSES, biscuits and gravy, crispy hash browns and one of the BEST Omeletes I have eaten, as well as lunch entrees. All are served up and delivered to your table like you are a personal friend.

Both Breakfast and Lunch are offered from 6 am to 2 pm at her location in Riverside Plaza on Lincoln Avenue. Check their site on Facebook – Sharon’s she has tons of raving reviews and additional information.
