Telluride Restaurants, Bars & Dining

Telluride is furnished with over 60 eating and drinking establishments with a mind-boggling array of cuisines. From a food truck hot dog piled high with all the toppings to an a la carte romantic French meal in one of Telluride’s oldest restaurants, visitors can find virtually anything they desire. Coffee lovers are pandered to with hip cafes and places like Coffee Cowboy serving brews out of an old horse trailer parked in the heart of downtown. Enjoy Telluride’s only fondue restaurant Alpinist and the Goat tucked away above an art gallery on Main Street, American steaks at the New Sheridan Chop House, and pastries, cakes, and pizza from Baked In Telluride.

There’s a good choice on the mountain, with Gorrono Ranch the closest thing Telluride has to an on-mountain cafeteria and one of the most popular places to eat on the slopes. At the top of Lift 9 Giuseppe’s offers the highest altitude Italian food in the US, while further up the mountain towards Gold Hill, Alpino Vino is the highest fine-dining restaurant in the country.

Apres-ski options are many and varied and particularly lively. Must-visits are American style bars The Last Dollar Saloon and New Sheridan, both part of Telluride lore.
