The Peak Picks: Walking Distance Dining

May 2, 2019

Breakfast

A wise man once said “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and frankly I live for that statement. I mean it’s undoubtedly the best excuse to eat banana pancakes any day of the week, or to grab a greasy breakfast burrito the size of your head at 11am on a Sunday. While it could be argued I severely abuse this quote that originated as a marketing tactic in efforts to sell more breakfast cereal - I don't see any harm in using it to my benefit twice (okay three times) a week. So for all you other breakfast fanatics out there, take a walk on the wild side and enjoy one of the below options recommended by our staff!

Lunch

Now this is a tough one. Depending on your mood, the time of day, and overall preference, you can take many different routes here. For example, are you a classic salad & sandwich type of luncher, a bruncher, or a light and quick kind of guy? Either way, we like to think we're experts in this category. With the amount of lunch outings we have, we've grown quite familiar with the good, the bad and the ugly around town. We’ve already done the dirty work for you. Just pick a spot, walk over, and enjoy!

Dinner

You know all those cheesy signs that we hang in our house to reminisce about a good time we once had… the “Live. Laugh. Love” kind of quotes? Well every time I read one of those my brain immediately takes me back to a fond memory I share with friends and family around a dinner table… because after all “dinner is better when we eat together”.  Okay but really, dinner is better when the food is exceptional, service is quick and we don't have to fuss with traffic and parking spots. So enjoy the following staff suggestions that are just WALKING DISTANCE from your room!
