Had the veggie scromelette. It was pretty good, but the avocado was bad, and that was disappointing since I love avocado. My husband had the French toast and the chorizo scromelette. Said both were excellent. Just a heads up: they do not have espresso or fresh juice. Drip coffee was local and good according to my husband.

This is a place that we have to visit for breakfast each time we are in Crested Butte. Everything on the menu is excellent!

The food here is basic....which isn't a bad thing, but have had incredibly slow, unapologetic service on days which were far from busy at McGill's. When others sitting next to you at the bar are getting their food and you have to ask your server to check on your dishes, there is something wrong.....

Get in before 10 or there is a wait. This place has great "scromlettes" (scrambled egg omelette) and eggs benedict! Their coffee is pretty good though I am an espresso lover. Tasty plates, great service, reasonably priced, and hubby loves their potatoes. We've been here about 3 times now and they are very consistent.

This place is great. It's where the locals come to eat breakfast and for good reason. The food is fantastic. I had a Hatstack which is biscuits, sausage, eggs, and gravy over a bed of hash browns. I highly recommend McGills for breakfast and make sure you get a hot cinnamon roll for desert. Yes, desert at breakfast. You won't... More

We were the first customers there on a weekday. We had wonderful service and great food. Each time we have been there we have only had breakfast, so I'm not sure how the lunch is. However, the breakfast is very good!!

We've eaten here for years. It's so fun to grab a seat at the long bar and chat with the people next to you, as well as those working behind the counter. The food is great, the biscuits are perfect, PERFECT, I say, and the breakfast burrito is so huge and so delicious you will not need lunch. If you... More
