The Columbine Bakery is an old-world, European bakery, with a focus on freshly baked and unique baked goods. They are popular with both locals and tourists for delicious, filling breakfasts at a reasonable price. The live music and old-world ambiance adds a bit of Europe to your trip, allowing you to feel like you’ve been transported to a café along the French Alps. Columbine is right next to Christy’s Ski Rental, so stop in and grab a bite before starting your day on the slopes.
What They’re Known for: Columbine is known for their pastries, cakes, and quiches, which are all made fresh daily. The bakery has an old-world European style, adding a touch of sophisticated to the raw beauty of the Colorado mountain landscape. And while breakfast is their peak time of the day, they also have Italian sandwiches and quiches that are local favorites. They are also well-known for being able to make a custom cake in short time, so if you forget to order a birthday cake until the last minute, Columbine’s is more than happy to please.
What to Watch for: Because Columbine is a favorite for both locals and tourists, it tends to stay busy, especially in the morning. Plan to wait a few minutes before being seated and you’ll be thrilled with the food and service.
