Delicious and Healthy Brunches in Boulder and Beyond

Though the Front Range of Colorado and Boulder truly shine when it comes to their lunch and dinner offerings, perhaps the best meal of the day, state-wide, is brunch. Most locals flock to the places on our list with abandon after a long night of camping in the Rocky Mountains or before a big day of hiking and adventuring. 

At the tippy-top of this incredible list sits the quaint, colorful, and tucked-away Sundance Cafe. Located in the mountains of Nederland, Colo., just 20 minutes from North Boulder, this spot offers a beautiful view while you fill your belly with pancakes, omelets, and the daily special. The perfect stop before a big day sight-seeing in the mountains, the staff at Sundance is as warm and welcoming as the atmosphere. 

A unique choice for a brunch list, Centro Latin Kitchen offers authentic Mexican cousin and some of the best brunch around. The Huavos Rancheros and the Centro Breakfast Burrito are two staples sure to please. Wash it all down with one of Centro's spicy and flavorful Blood Mary's or their refreshing Sangria. 

For a more traditional but still funky brunch full of character, the Southside Walnut Cafe offers simple, tasty breakfast and brunch items. This local favorite has been in operation since 1983 and offers some of the best pie for miles. 

Stick to our list and your hearts and bellies will be full to the brim!
