Best Breakfast Restaurants in Steamboat Springs


1865 Ski Time Square Dr, Steamboat Springs

Paramount cornered the breakfast scene around Steamboat Resort's mountain village about a decade ago. Their bright interior and eclectic menu showcase owners Suzy and Lee’s passion for delicious, freshly prepared food. Its slopeside location means that after you’re fueled up and filled up, you are literally in pole position to grab first chair on a ski day.  

Favorites on the menu include the delicious stuffed French Toast with fuji apples, honey butter, and maple syrup. Or go for the ultimate omega 3, try the Salmon and Eggs with smoked salmon, balsamic mustard dressed greens, ginger, and lemon goat cheese, cherry tomatoes, 2 eggs, and toast. More of a fancy toast kind of person? Try the avocado toast or go for toast with Nutella. Insider tip: Paramount’s homemade bacon is never a bad idea.


131 11th St, Steamboat Springs

Creekside has been the gold standard for breakfast in Downtown Steamboat for over 20 years. Located just off Lincoln Avenue, Creekside Cafe is a quiet reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Steamboat’s main street. In summer the picturesque patio next to Soda Creek is the perfect setting for breakfast under a bluebird sky. In winter this restaurant is popular with visitors and locals alike fueling up for a day of adventure.

Try the legendary Eggs Benedict menu for a taste of what makes Creekside a  ‘Best of the Boat’ winner nearly every year or dig into the infamous Wafflelaughagus - a malted waffle loaded with sausage gravy, melted cheddar, and jack cheese, choice of meat and two eggs any way, also served with breakfast potatoes. 

On the lighter side, enjoy a veggie omelet, avocado toast, or the gluten-free granola bowl. Wash it down with a cappuccino from the coffee bar or a freshly squeezed OJ. Insider tip: Try the powder keg jalapeno-infused bloody mary.
