Breckenridge is the ideal spot for your next Colorado vacation. Skiing and snowboarding are among the most popular activities in this scenic area, but guests can also enjoy luxurious spa treatments, adventurous zip-line tours, sightseeing and gourmet dining. After a day on the ski slopes, finding the right restaurant at the right price can be the icing on the cake for you and your family. The friendly and knowledgeable experts at Breckenridge Vacation Rentals have lined up five favorites sure to suit your palate and your budget perfectly.

The Lost Cajun

Creole cookery is an unexpected pleasure in the heart of Colorado ski country, and the culinary experts at The Lost Cajun serve up something special every day. Gumbo is a staple at this affordably priced restaurant and is available in four varieties, including a vegetarian option for those so inclined. The catfish and crawfish etouffeé, affectionately dubbed Cat-touffeé, is a real standout. The Lost Cajun offers free samples of its gumbo and soups, allowing picky eaters to try before they buy. All items are available for carry-out to Breckenridge vacation rentals and accommodations, allowing you to kick back and relax while enjoying some of the best of the South during your Colorado vacation.

Czech It Out

For an elegant dinner out at a surprisingly affordable price, Czech It Out is an outstanding choice. The restaurant offers a full wine list and an array of dishes inspired or outright borrowed from European cuisine, including truffle oil French fries, homemade duck pâté, confit of pork or duck, Viennese veal schnitzel and the house specialty, slowly braised Hungarian goulash. Guests can finish their meal with traditional Czech apple strudel complete with walnuts, raisins and whipped cream. Reservations are recommended, especially during peak dining hours.

Twist

A sister restaurant to upscale Relish, Twist is dedicated to providing comfort food for residents and travelers to the area. Chef Matthew Fackler and the culinary team serve up New American cuisine with a unique flair that accounts for the restaurant's name and its popularity. Standout menu items include the red curry braised beef short rib with Beluga lentils, the Cordon Blue rabbit and chicken meatloaf with blue cheese mashed potatoes and the highly popular blackened rainbow trout with Moroccan couscous salad and basil chimichurri. Be sure to save room for dessert; the Meyer lemon and Greek yogurt panna cotta is exceptional and may be one of the highlights of your Breckenridge trip.

Oscar's of Breckenridge

Located in the historic Main Street area of Breckenridge, Oscar's offers a taco happy hour and some of the best Mexican-inspired dishes available anywhere. The secret to the restaurant's success seems to be ultra-fresh ingredients expertly prepared by experienced chefs. Colorado Breck Bourbon Lamb is one of the more substantial items on the menu, but most come for Oscar's signature tacos. Shrimp, shredded chicken, carnitas, carne asada and blackened Mahi Mahi taco platters are among the most popular entries in the lineup and are served with your choice of two salsas from their extensive selection. Items can also be ordered a la carte to ensure the perfect meal for every palate.

The Canteen Taphouse and Tavern

A stunning view of the nearby mountain sets the stage for casual dining done right at the Canteen Taphouse and Tavern, which proudly proclaims that it is located in one of the oldest historic buildings on Main Street. Flatbreads, ahi poke and guacamole and the ever-popular Hawaiian-influenced Spam Musubi are all-stars on the appetizer menu, along with an extensive selection of flatbreads to suit almost any taste. Burgers, sandwiches and soups dominate the entrees at the Canteen; the Honeydew Burger is a local favorite and features cream cheese, fire-roasted green chili peppers and a combination of yellow mustard and honey for a unique taste treat. Best of all, these delectable items are affordably priced to help you make the most of your Colorado vacation.
