head here early if you want breakfast (which is awesome by the way), or plan on waiting for a while. then again it's summit county, so things move a little slower up here. all the omelettes are great - you can't go wrong.

My husband and I spent a week in Dillon CO in August. We ate breakfast at the Arapahoe every morning just so we could try everything on their breakfast menu. The granola pancakes were great. Even their oatmeal was amazing. The cafe is also open...More

Unfortunately we do not have heaters on the patio. If the sun is out it is usually warm enough to eat outside by about 9.
