Best Spot Overall & for Special Occasions
Wesley and Rose at the Surf Hotel……………………………...719.966.7048 http://surfhotel.com/wesley-rose/ Address: 1012 Front Loop (on the South Main Square), Buena Vista Dinner Daily, Brunch on Sundays (high season) Opened in the summer of 2018 this is by far the best restaurant in the region in our opinion - and it's just a short walk from our properties. The owners feel strongly that amazing bread is a cornerstone of any good restaurant, so they actually attended the San Francisco Baking Institute during research and development for their hotel/restaurant concept. All of their bread is made fresh on site for everything from english muffins, to amazing French Toast, to charcuterie and cheese boards, sandwiches, and pizzas. Inquire about buying a loaf of sourdough to bring home - it is scrumptious! The menu includes locally grown fare and changes regularly. Their bar also serves up surprisingly inventive and delicious cocktails. The atmosphere visually takes us back to days spent in chic cafes in Europe, combined with outdoor dining overlooking the kayak playholes on the Arkansas River. The vibe is very casual, akin to Southern California fine eateries where you can be comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt, or dressed up for a night on the town. High season hours are generally happy hour (4 to 5pm) and dinner (from 5pm to 9 pm) 7 days/week, and weekend brunch on Sunday (8 am to 2 pm), but call ahead to confirm.

House Rock Kitchen………………………………………………...…...719.966.2326 http://www.houserockkitchen.com/ Address: 421 East Main St., Buena Vista Lunch and Dinner Daily (high season) This casual/counter service only restaurant is another perennial favorite for visitors and locals alike, including us. The owners spend about half the year traveling the world and are very health conscious, which is all reflected in their menu. They brew their own kombucha and even serve up kombucha cocktails. In the summer their expansive patio is a great place to take kids, and features outdoor play/game equipment for kids and adults, and a cozy fire pit for cool nights. High season hours are generally 11am to 9pm, 7 days/week, but call ahead to confirm.

Simple Eatery ………………………………………………………………..719.207.9400 https://www.spoon-it-up.com/ Address: 402 E. Main St., Buena Vista Lunch and Dinner Daily (high season) Simple Eatery is housed in half of the historic State Highway Department building on Main Street, sharing the space with The Trailhead outdoor outfitters. This casual, counter service only spot has a delightfully fresh and varied menu with something for everyone. We find it better than the Noodles chain, but somewhat similar in offerings. All their bread is baked fresh in house - if you want to take a loaf home try the pretzel loaf, it’s delicious! They also have a self-serve frozen yogurt bar with toppings galore. In the summer their large gravel patio features ample seating and space for kids to run around and play with the provided outdoor games. In the high season they are generally open 10:30am to 9pm, but call ahead to confirm.

The Browns Canyon Riverside Grill...................................719-395-2466 https://whitewater.net/riverside-grill/ Address: 24070 County Road 301 Lunch and Dinner River Runners Rafting company has a fantastic, summer only, outdoor grill located at their rafting base camp, right on the banks of the Arkansas River, about 6 miles south of Buena Vista. Tasty quesadillas, fish tacos and margaritas are the type of fare you'll find here. They often have live music too.

The Triangle Hat (SUMMER ONLY - Food Stand)...............719.966.9037 The BV Farmer’s Market @ McPhelmy Park https://www.thetrianglehat.com/ or https://www.instagram.com/thetrianglehat/ Most Sundays 10am - 2pm (June - October, see instagram for current details) We are thrilled that starting in the summer of 2021, our very own Co-Host Thuy is serving up her delicious family recipes for authentic Vietnamese street food at the BV Farmer’s Market. We have known her for many years, so we already knew she was an amazing cook, but she still blew us away with every bite we sampled at her opening day! From fried rice to spring rolls, and her amazing mango pudding, now we have another reason to look forward to Summer Sundays!

Crave (Opening July 2021).....................................................719.221.3501 300 E. Main St., Buena Vista https://cravebv.com/ This is the newest addition to BV’s restaurant offerings (but has no outdoor dining). We cannot tell you much about it since as I type this in late June, they haven’t opened yet; but, we are eagerly awaiting heading over there as soon as they do! Offerings include pizza, a salad bar, and wine on tap. Crave is owned by the good folks from Simple Eatery, so it’s sure to be tasty. Located in a freshly restored, historic building on Main Street, we thoroughly enjoyed peeking in through the windows while this spot was under renovation - it looks truly amazing inside!

Wesley and Rose at the Surf Hotel……………………………...719.966.7048 http://surfhotel.com/wesley-rose/ Address: 1012 Front Loop (on the South Main Square), Buena Vista Dinner Daily, Brunch on Sundays (high season) Opened in the summer of 2018 this is by far the best restaurant in the region in our opinion - and it's just a short walk from our properties. In terms of breakfast, this is THE place to go on a Sunday (the only day they offer brunch). The owners feel strongly that amazing bread is a cornerstone of any good restaurant, so they actually attended the San Francisco Baking Institute during research and development for their hotel/restaurant concept. All of their bread is made fresh on site for everything from english muffins, to amazing French Toast, to charcuterie and cheese boards, sandwiches, and pizzas. Inquire about buying a loaf of sourdough to bring home - it is scrumptious! The menu includes locally grown fare and changes regularly. Their bar also serves up surprisingly inventive and delicious cocktails. The atmosphere visually takes us back to days spent in chic cafes in Europe, combined with outdoor dining overlooking the kayak playholes on the Arkansas River. The vibe is very casual, akin to Southern California fine eateries where you can be comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt, or dressed up for a night on the town. High season hours are generally happy hour (3 to 5pm) and dinner (from 5pm to 9 pm) 7 days/week, and weekend brunch on Sunday (8 am to 2 pm), but call ahead to confirm.

The Blend...................................................................................719-398-1492 https://www.theblendbv.com/ Address: 301 E. Main Street #100 Breakfast & Lunch Some of our neighbors opened this spot in 2019 and it quickly became another local favorite. It's a good spot for quick breakfast bites, sandwiches and smoothies and conveniently located in the heart of Main St. downtown. They're next to the splash park (closed in 2020 due to Covid), which is great for the kids on a hot day, and have they have a few outdoor tables in a small back courtyard area.

Bread + Salt………………………………………………………………………....719.966.5089 418 US Highway 24, Buena Vista Website for their Frisco location (same menu for BV) http://breadandsaltfrisco.com/ Breakfast, Lunch When Barb decided to close The Evergreen (a BV institution), we wondered what could replace it - Bread + Salt is the answer. This is a great spot for a simple, classic breakfast, but you’ll also be amazed by how many different and creative breakfast options they offer. The Avocatini breakfast sandwich is a taste sensation! Open Wednesday - Sunday from 7am to 2pm, but call ahead to confirm.

Bird and Mouse Bakery…………………………………………........….719.221.2337 Located in the tiny house on the alley directly behind The Olive Food Truck (324 E. Main) https://www.birdandmousebakery.com/ or https://www.instagram.com/birdandmousebakery/ Friday - Saturday (some Sundays), 7:30am - 11:30am (see Instagram for current details) Opened in 2021 by a local pastry chef and high altitude baker extraordinaire, Bird and Mouse Bakery is a welcome addition to BV’s growing culinary repertoire. Danielle and her husband designed and built this amazing tiny bakery from scratch exactly to her specifications. We love to pop by on weekends for her freshly made sweet and savory pastries (which often feature locally grown flowers, herbs, fruits and veggies, some from her own garden). It’s also great for picking up fresh english muffins and bagels to snack on later. Plus, she has some heartier, hot breakfast fare, along with coffee and other beverages. There is no on site seating, so grab your goods to go.

Brown Dog Coffee Company ……………………………………...719.395.2634 https://browndogcoffee.com/ Address: 713 US-24, Buena Vista This is the original cool, local coffee shop in our town, and it’s still a great spot that offers more than just tasty coffee and a wide variety of freshly made baked goods. They also have breakfast burritos, salads, sandwiches and soups. We tend to overlook it since it’s out on the highway and we have a number of good options between Main Street and South Main, but if you have hit up all the other spots in town and are looking for a little more variety it’s a spot worth considering too.

Station 24 Cafe......................................................................(719) 395-5742 https://www.facebook.com/Station-24-Cafe-197637894483442/ Address: 12867 US HWY 24 / 285 Located in Johnson Village, just after you cross the US 285 bridge over the Arkansas to drive toward Buena Vista, this little spot opened up in 2018 much to the delight of locals and visitors alike. It's one of the three best spots in/around BV to grab a breakfast burrito and it's become our go-to when we don't have time to make and pack breakfast burritos at home. They have recently expanded their grab n' go fare to include fresh pastries, sandwiches, salads and burritos. The staff are friendly and it has a funky, retro highway cafe vibe.

The Blend...................................................................................719-398-1492 https://www.theblendbv.com/ Address: 301 E. Main Street #100 Breakfast & Lunch Some of our neighbors opened this spot in 2019 and it quickly became another local favorite. It's a good spot for quick breakfast bites, sandwiches and smoothies and conveniently located in the heart of Main St. downtown. They're next to the splash park (closed in 2020 due to Covid), which is great for the kids on a hot day, and they have a few outdoor tables in a small back courtyard area.

Bird and Mouse Bakery…………………………………………........….719.221.2337 Located in the tiny house on the alley directly behind The Olive Food Truck (324 E. Main) https://www.birdandmousebakery.com/ or https://www.instagram.com/birdandmousebakery/ Friday - Saturday (some Sundays), 7:30am - 11:30am (see Instagram for current details) Opened in 2021 by a local pastry chef and high altitude baker extraordinaire, Bird and Mouse Bakery is a welcome addition to BV’s growing culinary repertoire. Danielle and her husband designed and built this amazing tiny bakery from scratch exactly to her specifications. We love to pop by on weekends for her freshly made sweet and savory pastries (which often feature locally grown flowers, herbs, fruits and veggies, some from her own garden). It’s also great for picking up fresh english muffins and bagels to snack on later. Plus, she has some heartier, hot breakfast fare, along with coffee and other beverages. There is no on site seating, so grab your goods to go.

K's Dairy Delite........................................................................719-395-8695 https://www.ksdairydelite.com/ Address: 223 US-24 This place is pricey for a burger joint, but it's a novel local institution around here. When they give you your receipt, it comes with the moniker of a famous celebrity - that's who they call when they let you know your order is up. It's next to Columbine Park (a.k.a. "K's Park"), the best park in town for picnics and play structures that are located alongside Cottonwood Creek.
