My wife and I dropped in for lunch while on our annual trek to Colorado. While we have had breakfast here before which was excellent,we have never had lunch. We were not disappointed. My wife enjoyed the roast beef and cheddar sandwich that was"one of the best sandwiches I've ever had!" I also was pleased with the bison burger topped... More

We stopped in for lunch after skiing. From the moment we walked in until we left, the service was awesome. Roasted tomatoe, basiland asiago soup was fabulous. I had BBQ pork Sammy with sweet potatoe fries, my husband had green chili cheeseburger with onion rings. Everything was hot and the BBQ pork had a great smoke flavor. The chilies on... More

They have a different special every day of the week. My favorite is a Friday special, Red Trout Plate!

My friend and I had a wonderful lunch last week at the Arapahoe Cafe. I had the huevos rancheros. It was absolutely delicious--great pork green chili!!!! In the past, I have had the tuna melt and the beef brisket sandwich. Both were outstanding as were the sides.

Whenever I'm in the Dillon/Silverthorne/Frisco area I make a stop here. There food is all very good, reasonably priced and they have a fun, casual atmosphere....both upstairs in the main dinning area and downstairs in the bar area. Only reason for four vs five stars, wait time. I've always eaten downstairs, and while the (usually 2) guys working the tables... More

Arapahoe Cafe is a great local spot for breakfast. I have heard dinner is great as well but so far out of the three times I have visited, all breakfast. Great coffee...they have pancakes with homemade granola in it which are amazing! Eggs Benedict were fabulous. Prices are good. The decor is awesome with all kinds of old photos full... More

Best breakfast in Summitt Co. Excellent service. Very cool interior with ample seating, great coffee, great food. The signature omellett is better than you can make at home and biscuits are better than grandmas.

I-70 was closed because of an accident at supper time, so we couldn't go where we planned by car. So we ate here, next door to the Best Western Hotel. We thought it looked too small, but inside, they had plenty of empty tables. The grill was broke, but they still managed to offer many items, including our great Caesar... More
