Published November 15, 2019

With cooler temperatures and snow on the ground, it’s the perfect time of year to sleep in and linger over breakfast. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite breakfast places in Silverthorne where you can enjoy everything from a classic eggs benedict to pancake soufflés to giant breakfast burritos. Grab a cup of coffee, or enjoy a Bloody Mary, and dig in!

Mountain Lyon Café

The famed Mountain Lyon Café moved to their new location in town a year ago after serving up pancakes and bacon for 25 years at the site of Fourth Street Crossing. The Mountain Lyon Café may be in a new space, but remains a local’s favorite, with the added bonus of a few more tables. Check out the giant breakfast burrito or breakfast tacos for a southwestern flair, or enjoy biscuits-n-gravy or chicken fried steak-n-eggs for a southern twist.
