QUICK - last minute trip to Gunnison TOMORROW

We'll have our dog with us so we are looking for either casual lunch and to-go good dinner options in the area. Sorry for the last minute but thanks for ALL of the help!!

  1. I happen to be in Crested Butte right now, and Gunnison is the town I drive through. I have eaten at Garlic Mike's in the past -- standard Italian fare, friendly, pleasant. Friends who work there sometimes goto Katie's Cookery and Farrell's for lunch. An d there's now a brew pub too. Not sure how this relates to having your dog with you -- except be careful, of course, of leaving the dog in a hot car.

    If you have time, drive north to Crested Butte which has an abundance of excellent eateries.

      ClaireWalter - I think you're about the only person I've seen offer up info on the CB dining scene - just wondering if you have any updates? I was sad to see Sunshine Deli didn't make it and I didn't get a chance to try the new deli when I was there in July. Have you? One of my favorite places now is that Momo guy's cart with the dumplings - simple and sooooo delicious.

        Hungryinaz - I'm afraid that Gunnison is the place that I turn to drive to Crested Butte. On my way home on Sunday, I stopped at Mocha to pick up a latte and a scone. I was impressed by this cafe/bakery's attention to families w/ half-size shakes and smooties, kiddie ice cream cones and 1/2 a bagel w/ cream cheese, all far less than an adult size. I'm not pretending it doesn't exist elsewhere, but I've never seen it in an espresso place.

        See http://culinary-colorado.blogspot.com... for meal report and pix at CB's East Side Bistro.

    2. We ended up doing Garlic Mike's for takeout back at the hotel - it was pretty good!
