Breakfast and brunch food

Breakfast & Brunch

Fuel up for your big trip into the forest with breakfast in Granby, or visit a new restaurant every morning and get to know our authentic mountain town.

Morning Feasts

Visit the Fat Cat Café for huevos rancheros with homemade green chili. If you’re in the mood for something sweeter, the strawberry blintz is a gem. Cage-free eggs however you like them, thick bacon, pies, and more breakfast favorites are made from scratch. Come for the food and leave with a new piece of locally made art or jewelry. 

Dig into the elk bratwurst or cream cheese French toast at the Mid Town Café. Can’t decide? Split them both with a friend, or come back tomorrow! Getting ready to eat out of your backpack for a while? Start your trip off right with their biscuits and gravy, unless you fancy the steak and eggs. 

The cheery tables at the Java Lava Café are a great place to greet the morning. Even if you’re partial to catching your own breakfast, you’ll be impressed with their salmon eggs benedict. From the corned beef hash to the silver dollar pancakes, they have a dish to match your appetite. 

Quick and Easy

Swing by Debbie’s Drive In for classic donuts, or try a breakfast donut with bacon, egg, and cheese. Maple frosting dipped in a cup of dark roast coffee will have you cruising down the trail in no time.

Some of the full-service breakfast spots offer lighter fare, too. Savor a bowl of oatmeal or a bagel at Java Lava Café. The Mid Town Café has a rotating pastry menu where cinnamon rolls, chocolate croissants, and gluten-free almond shortbread have been known to make the rounds. If you’re craving a hearty bagel sandwich or tasty breakfast burrito, Rocky Mountain Roastery has your back.

Weekend Brunch

The Granby brunch scene is at Brickhouse 40, where locals and visitors alike can clink mimosa glasses over plates of avocado toast, biscuits and gravy, and more. The imaginative drink list is anchored by the classic Bloody Mary.

If someone in your party has their heart set on lunch, there’s a mouthwatering selection of starters, sides, and entrees. Pass around a plate of sweet potato dumplings or order a bowl of elk chili just for you.   

Custom Coffees, Teas, and More

Savor the chili and cinnamon of a Mayan hot chocolate at Mid Town Café, or sample the boba tea at Java Lava Café. For a smooth, rich take on coffee, Debbie’s Drive In offers nitro brew. If you’re on the go, Simple Coffee’s drive-thru/walk-up window makes for a convenient pit stop. Speaking of pit stops, Truepenny Pitstop serves delicious smoothies, smoothie bowls, and other healthy treats that will power up your morning.

Whatever the weather, refreshment is at the ready. Warm your hands upon a latte or a pot of organic tea. In the summer, you can treat the kids to an Italian soda while you recharge with a chai frappe. Before you break into that trail mix, treat yourself to breakfast in Granby. Even the most rugged vacation needs a little home cooking. Adventure starts here!
