I first visited Breckenridge in 1996 and this was my sixth trip since and one constant in all this time has been the Blue Moose. We had breakfast there most days (on the others we were skiing other resorts) and the food, service and general welcome were uniformly excellent. Service is fast, too, so even if you have to wait at busy times (we didn't) it won't be for too long. Thanks everyone for a great time.

A super friendly breakfast place. Informal and efficient staff will cater to your every need. Going off piste is perfectly acceptable. They will make you what you want if they have it.
Good coffee.
And smile! You’re on holiday

Great French toast or omelettes plus other selections- it stays crowded so be patient. Very friendly wait staff. Casual

Not sure what more you could ask for in a ski town breakfast spot. Coffee was good, breakfast spirits on the menu, tasty food and friendly staff. Will recommend to anyone visit g Breck!

Stopping in at the Blue Moose on my way through Breck last fall was mostly for name recognition and nostalgia*. While the service is friendly and timely, I was sorely disappointed in the food. Had the Eggs Benny and a side of bacon. BIG Mistake. The hollandaise tasted more like cream gravy - pasty, absolutely no luxurious buttery flavor or mouthfeel, no lemony tang or even hint of a cayenne nip. In other words, totally flavorless. (Very frustrating since making it is soo easy, you can do it in your sleep!) To add insult to the injury, my side of bacon, at more than $1.50 per slice, was burnt nearly black, crispy/brittle to the point of falling apart in little shards.

I rarely return food (having done so only twice in perhaps 10 years) and this was one of those times. Perhaps the owner was sincere when he mentioned that the hollandaise is house made, and not from a can or foil pouch. But blaming the poor result on pasteurized egg yolks tells me that he doesn't actually cook much. I have worked at a few good restaurants and used pasteurized egg yolks. They are fine to work with in many applications and make great hollandaise. (Of course, pasteurized egg whites are a different story.) Anyway, the point is, if you go to the Blue Moose, don't order the eggs Benedict or bacon, unless you like blah yellow gravy on your eggs and super crispy 'cajun blackened' breakfast meat. (*BTW: The Blue Moose name conjures up old the old Aspen bar scene from the early 1970's. This one is a big let down to that great, older, distinctly Colorado mountain high!)
