Where to Eat in Ft. Collins – Our Top Picks


Food & Drink


Ft. Collins


Ft. Collins has some very good dining options. Our top recommendations include:

The Kitchen: Having been to the Kitchen in Boulder, I wanted to try their recently opened Ft. Collins restaurant. This is a wonderful spot in the old town at 100 N. College Ave. I highly recommend their Colorado lamb burger and the pot au chocolate with heavy cream for dessert.

Silver Grill Cafe: At 218 Walnut, this is a local’s favorite for breakfast and lunch since 1933.

Backcountry Delicatessen at 140 N. College is a great casual spot for sandwiches.

My local friends also recommend The Rio for great Mexican Food at 143 W. Mountain Ave.

The Bean Cycle Coffee House and Roasters: At 144 N. College, this is a local coffee roaster with excellent coffee! You may need to stop in twice after visiting the local craft breweries! It has a fun atmosphere with a small bookstore in the rear.

You should also check out the The Blind Pig Pub & Grub at 214 Linden, The Welsh Rabbit Cheese Shop and Bistro at 216 Pine St. and the new Nuance Chocolate shop at 214 Pine.
