There are so many great restaurants in Crested Butte.

Donita's Cantina - Gold Marg is pretty fantastic! Solid mexican goodness.
Loco - New but based on the well known local chef, we're excited!! Associated with Django's (fantastic!) at the mountain.
Why Cook?! - Prepared meals you can heat up at home. Next to Clark's grocery store.
Ginger Cafe or The Secret Stash - Both already mentioned above, both totally worth eating-in or taking-out.
~~Just For Fun~~
Montanya Distillers - Yes, we did just say distillery!
Award Winning Rum!
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory - Finger licking good. They also have Ice Cream in the summer.
Third Bowl - Homemade Ice Cream. What?!? Awesome.
The Princess Wine Bar - Live acoustic music sometimes. Good chill-out place.
Uley’s Cabin and Ice Bar - Mid-mountain & only open in winter. Bar made out of ICE. A one of a kind experience.
Avalanche - Apres Ski!! At the Mountain Base area.
~~Hit or Miss~~
Brick Oven - Pizza's not always so good, but the salad bar is. Beer on the outside deck is ALWAYS excellent.
Wooden Nickel - We've had some good meals and some really, really terrible ones.
Slogar - You're starving and bottomless mashed potatoes and fried chicken sound great? Go! Not so hungry...skip it.
Special Gunnison Shout Out
High Alpine Brew Co - A great friend of ours opened this brewery and we're blown away. Fabulous beer and thin crust pizza!
If you have the chance, stop at City Market on highway 135 in Gunnison (you'll pass it on your way to Crested Butte just before you leave the Gunni town limits). It is larger and cheaper than the store in Crested Butte. In Crested Butte, we have Clark's market which is just on your left when you drive into town. You can definitely get anything you need here but the store isn't huge. (Except
prescriptions! Get those in Gunni if necessary!) We also have a small but well stocked health food store in town which is on 4th St around the corner from Donita's Cantina.
