Family Vacation to Breckenridge with Foodie Recommendations

Written by Becky

On a recent summer vacation to Breckenridge, I had the chance to explore some fun restaurants and enjoy cherished time with my family. I met my niece for the first time and instantly fell in love. My sister and brother-in-law live with their baby girl in China, so we see them far less than we’d like. Their baby girl is about 18 months old now, which is such a fun age. We enjoyed playing outside with her as she loves the sunshine and splashing in the pool, and she even seemed to enjoy being in the kitchen. It was so cute that she wanted to eat whatever we ate. She would come up to me to get a taste of my cereal or a blueberry from my salad. We took her out on the town one night and ate at a nice restaurant where she proceeded to lick (literally) her food off of the table! We couldn’t stop her because she was too darn cute. I’d say her first fine dining experience went pretty well 🙂

Here are a few photos from our time in Breckenridge.

If you ever get a chance to visit this cute mountain town, here are some restaurants and shops I highly recommend:
The Hearthstone– upscale dining in a beautiful historic home
Clint’s Bakery– great sandwiches and sweets, must try their carrot cake, blueberry buckle and their veggie wrap
Columbine Cafe– breakfast and brunch on Main Street with a great patio and pancakes the size of your head
Relish– upscale dining near the river on Main Street with a beautiful patio view and excellent food, must try their sangria and their salted carmel gelato dessert
Modis– hip dining on Main Street with a fun atmosphere
Crepes a la Carte– crepe stand on Main Street with lunch, dinner and of course dessert crepes. Much more than just nutella in a thin pancake!
Breckenridge Spice Merchants– for the foodies who visit Breck, this is a great place to find exotic spices, spice blends, and unusual teas.A few of my favorites from the trip:
Favorite sweet treats: Blueberry Buckle from Clint’s Bakery and Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Relish
Favorite Meal: Mahi Mahi over purple rice with a sweet coconut sauce at Relish
Best past-time: Biking from Breckenridge to Frisco
Funny Memory: My neice licking the table at a fine dining restaurant

  1. I haven't been to Breckenridge in years. What a fun vacation. The photo of your niece is priceless. So fun to see you at Cristie's last week.

  2. Completely agree about Clint's carrot cake – it is the best I've had. Next time you're in town you'll have to try Empire Burger (try a buffalo burger) and Michael's Italian Restaurant – those are two of my absolute favorites!

  3. Becky! relish is one of my favorites! and columbine cafe is one of our favorites for breakfast! There is a bar/restaurant called Briar Rose..they have amazing mac and cheese!
