You have taken a couple of early morning trips down the slopes at Steamboat, and the exercise and cold morning air has left you hungry for a good breakfast. Why not stop into one of our town’s most colorful and imaginative restaurants? Freshies Restaurant has been serving up great breakfasts and lunches ever since 2003.
Freshies Steamboat is open every day for breakfast and lunch. They have a cheerfully decorated dining room, and in the summer months you can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine while you eat. They have a menu that is full of fresh and healthy fare that will please anyone from the gluten avoidant to the carboholic.
The breakfast menu includes many an imaginative egg dish, including white cheddar enchiladas with scrambled eggs and a southwestern benny with poached eggs, avocado and red chili. They also offer a Sunrise Scramble that is loaded with tons of veggies, fresh garlic and avocado. Vegans will be happy to learn that you can substitute tofu for the eggs in any dish.
The scrambles include a side of perfectly cooked home fries or rich creamy cheese grits. For just $4 more you can get a healthy side of fresh fruit or edible weeds.
If you are more of a cereal person, the restaurant offers a fantastic oatmeal with fruit, brown sugar and syrup, as well as a homemade honey baked granola. They also have some delectable strawberry and blueberry pancakes.
Lunch at Freshies Restaurant
If you arrive a bit later in the day to Freshies Restaurant, you can enjoy some great salads and sandwiches, such as the roasted beet salad, which is a hearty combination of roasted beets, goat cheese, and walnuts, all slathered in a maple vinaigrette. The restaurant puts an imaginative spin on the Greek salad by adding artichoke hearts and pairing it with Indian tandoori bread.
Sandwiches include a phenomenal homemade veggie burger with avocado, melted white cheddar and fresh pea sprouts. There is also a grilled cheese sandwich made with avocado, tomato and onions.
Although they are only open for breakfast and lunch, Freshies Steamboat has a full bar with imaginative cocktails like the Freshie Splash, which combines coconut rum with limeade and orange juice.
