After the Run: Local Favorites

Sloopy's Grill Had a burger, fries, and a milkshake. All were delicious. Friendly staff and a nice place to hangout. Best burger in the Grand Lake area.
Miyauchi's Snack Bar Get the wild berry crumble with a chocolate dip and a waffle cone
1029 Lake Ave., Grand Lake CO — (970) 627-9319
The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern Go forth and let all the people eat bacon wrapped, garlic stuffed dates
Dunraven Inn You must get their special especially when it is fresh seafood! The muscles for an app were superb and an Irish coffee for dessert finished it off beautifully.
Sundeck Restaurant Best apple pie ever!
Cascades Restaraunt & Lounge Try the ice water. It's the best thing on the menu...
Baba's burgers, gyros & more Ate the Garden burger and it was absolutely delicious. Best non meat burger Ive ever had.
Smokin' Dave's BBQ & Taphouse Pulled pork was the best but so were the ribs, brisket, and bread pudding
Inkwell & Brew Exceptional atmosphere, exceptional coffee, exceptional people!
Mountain Home Cafe Skillets are awesome with hot corn tortillas and extra homemade salsa!
Nepal's Cafe Great food and exceedingly friendly!
Notchtop Bakery & Café This is a great breakfast restaurant with lots of healthy choices including gluten free options and GF bread that tastes like real bread. One of my favorite restaurants in Estes Park.
Mama Rose's The house salad is excellent, perfectly dressed. The wait staff is A++. Prices are affordable - our bill for a family of four came to a little over $70 which inc. beers & desserts.
Estes Park Pie Shop Not just about great pie. The diner food here is awesome. Pot pie and Mac and cheese is yummy!
The Egg & I Restaurants Bacon is amazing here.
Poppy's Pizza & Grill Here with a large group? Don't worry about paying extra gratuity. Poppy's has a policy of not charging extra for a large party!
Ed's Cantina & Grill Address is spelled wrong, it's Elkhorn.
Donut Haus Nothing Gluten Free. C'mon Donut Haus...get it together. For those of us who can't have gluten.

Snowy, Mostly Dry, Icy - Packed snow all the way. Spikes are needed. Snowshoes aren't necessary with current snow height. Below treeline the snow is thick but packed. Above treeline is mostly snow covered but still patchy. The greatest hindrance is wind.

Snowy, Icy - Not a ton of snow up there (2-4" toward pear lake), but the trail is somewhat icy. I didn't need Microspikes today, but I suspect they'll be necessary soon on the steeper portions.
