I love their avocado toast! They have really good scrambled eggs and fresh squeezed juices. Atmosphere is pleasant. Staff is friendly. My kids love their chocolate chip pancakes--yum! Their pancakes are little crispy in spots on the outside, which makes them soooo yummy.

Delicious fresh-squeezed orange juice, great service, and if you install the "no wait" app on your phone and check in online while you are getting ready to go, you will breeze past everyone in the waiting room and have almost no wait. If you don't use the app, plan on waiting 45 minutes at least. But we love this place, mostly because we know that our kids will not tolerate a long wait for breakfast. With the app, we have never waited longer than 10 minutes. Most of the time, we walk right up to the host to "check-in" and are the next people to get a table. It is fabulous!

AMAZING vegetarian food with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. People who are not used to vegetarian dining even like this place! Try the Kentucky fried-freedom and you will be amazed that you are not actually eating meat. Added benefit: no after-meal gut bomb feeling!

Top-notch sustainably-sourced seafood restaurant. When my brother-in-law comes to visit from Portland, he always has this restaurant on his agenda. It is soooo good! Its a little pricey and you will likely need to plan in advance and make a reservation at least a few days, sometimes a few weeks early in order to get a table during prime time.

Delicious Creole breakfast. Cuisine straight from New Orleans. Cute and quaint--located in an old house in old town. Prepare for a wait on weekends. Dining quarters are tight here. The place is quite small, but the food is really good.

Homemade cinnamon rolls and really tasty breakfast specials. This place is an old town Fort Collins classic. I don't know how long it has been open--I'm just going to say forever. And, they have lots of seating and can accommodate large groups. They have a nice patio too. And, the wait is pleasant because they have free coffee and lots of room on the back patio for people who are waiting for tables.

Drinks & Nightlife

Fabulous location in the heart of old town. Great food, good beer, classic Fort Collins. Listen to live music in old town square from their back patio pubside. Play pool or darts and hang out in the poolside. Note: there are two separate menus for the two sides of the restaurant. Pubside is burgers and pub-type food (yummy brisket and bangers and mash). Poolside is mostly pizzas (try kermit's 'zza). Delicious artichoke dip available on both sides. I love their green chile ale.

Very cool prohibition-era atmosphere. Located underground. Very delicious hand-crafted mixed drinks with tasty fresh ingredients. Very fun atmosphere for a relaxing late night cocktail.

Sophisticated bar. Popular with locals. Always busy. It opened a little after my "going out on the town" years, but I know a lot of people that like it.

The oldest bar in town. Its super tiny. The bathroom is the smallest bathroom I have ever been in. They are known for their atomic cherries and bloody maries. This bar is a Fort Collins classic. Im not saying its the best drinking establishment in town, but it is the smallest and the oldest, and you kind of have to see it.

This place and Budweiser tie for the best Pilsners in town. Did you know that Pilsners are among the most difficult beers to make? This place hits the nail on the head and it is super close to our location. And, they have a great, family-friendly patio. They also have a food truck from Taps parked next to their Beer Garden and Taps has good food.

Odell's is a Fort Collins classic. Their patio and outdoor space is legendary. It is such nice place to hang out in the summer. They were one of the first Craft Breweries homegrown in Fort Collins to make it big. They are conveniently located on the poudre river trail--a great place to bike to. They always have a food truck and a beer or cider to suite anyone's taste. They are close to New Belgium, so you could hit both places in the same trip.

Busweiser has been one of the biggest and most critical employers in Fort Collins since the 1980's. This Budweiser Brewery here in Fort Collins has won awards for making the best Budweiser in the world. It's all because of the people and our FRESH MOUNTAIN WATER! The views from the Biergarten and the Patio are unreal. And this place is very kid-friendly. You can tour the Clydesdales' barn--man are those horses pampered! We used to have Clydesdales here all of the time, but now the team is much smaller and they tour the country. Check their schedule online to see if they will be here during your stay. Great beer selection & this place also serves decent food. VERY KID FRIENDLY!
