We were there early and grabbed some 1/2 prices appetizers at the bar. It was really good. My husband loved his wing. My artichoke dip was great. I would like to go there for an actual meal.

Service and food quality is excellent, in this mountain community it is very hard to match or even come close to what they achieved. Locals best keep secret.

This is my favorite spot in Dillon. I particularly like their huevos rancheros for breakfast. You can't go wrong at this establishment.

Every time we come to Dillon we eat at Arapahoe Cafe. It's consistently good service and delicious food. The trout is great! The bar area downstairs always has great daily specials. We tried the pulled pork cheese fries this and they were AMAZING. Better than I expected. Definitely worth checking out!

Cabin style with patio seating in the summer. Everything is good especially the granola pancakes for breakfast. My son, a Navy man, says they had the best fish & chips at lunch that he had ever tasted.

I really wanted breakfast but they stop serving at 11 AM. So I had a cheeseburger. It was very good and I totally enjoyed the french fries, as well. They do have a few "breakfast after breakfast" items. My husband had the tamales and eggs. He thought they were quite good. I will return to try the breakfast.
