Soupz On

970) 547-4797

This local gem has been around for 18 years.  Their secret; to create the finest soup this world has ever tasted, end of story.  I think locals would agree.  Soupz On makes one-of-a-kind culinary creations that will make your taste buds do a happy dance in your mouth.

In addition to offering a wide variety of soups that change daily, they also have three sandwiches and three to four salad options daily.  They also always have a vegetarian/vegan option.

Note that although the food is big on flavor, the physical space is very small with limited indoor seating and a few tables outside.

Duggan’s Deli


This is a staple for anyone who comes to Breck, don’t go there expecting a refined or sophisticated dining experience, just amazing and delicious sandwiches.  Duggan’s Deli offers a very good selection of hot and cold sandwiches, featuring upscale ingredients like Boar’s Head meats at reasonable prices.

Please note that it can be tricky to find as it is hidden away in a basement.  Seating is limited to a few tables and take-out is very popular.

Downstairs At Eric’s


If you live in Breckenridge or visit, Downstairs at Eric’s is kind of a rite of passage.  It’s the kind of place you go to eat, drink and hangout.  There is something for everyone, televisions to watch games, a full arcade and a full menu with great food and drink.
