Crepes A La Carte: this Breckenridge staple is worth the wait. With an extensive menu that includes savory, sweet and build-your-own crepes, every item is made fresh to order. Popular among locals and visitors alike, this street side walk up window offers a creative menu. Crepe favorites include chicken Florentine, the Breck ribeye, bananas foster or the blue lagoon (Nutella with blueberries, brown sugar and Bailey’s Irish Cream.) Wait in line on Main Street or visit their second (indoor) location at 309 South Ridge Street Alley (less than two blocks away).

Butterhorn Bakery: if crepes aren’t your style, bee line for the Butterhorn Bakery on Main Street. Display cases greet you, stocked with beautiful pastries, cookies, cakes, pies and more.
