Breckenridge breakfast spot: Park & Main
In a whirlwind of less than 24 hours, I dove into the Breckenridge dining scene at Empire Burger, reunited with a college friend at the original Breckenridge Brewery, capped off my night with a classic cocktail at Modis, and rounded out my Rocky Mountain stay with a well-balanced breakfast at Park & Main.
Located in downtown Breckenridge, Park & Main practically shares outdoor seating space with Empire Burger. The two restaurants — along with Italian eatery Giampietro’s and Briar Rose Chophouse & Saloon — also share the same owners.
Perhaps that mutual ownership plays into the reason why I liked both restaurants — quality food in a cool setting.
Like Empire Burger, Park & Main’s view also looks out to the mountain and downtown, and the restaurant has both a colorful indoor dining room and outdoor space to soak in Colorado’s 300 days of sunshine.
Open for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. daily, Park & Main’s breakfast menu offers wiggle room for dietary concerns and personal preference with build-your-own breakfast sandwiches, a breakfast burrito to which you can add toppings like veggie sausage or kale, and availability to substitute many of the grains for gluten-free options.
I chose to build my own breakfast sandwich, selecting scrambled egg, Fontina cheese and a tomato slice on a Wolferman’s English Muffin. There were about half a dozen cheeses and more than a dozen other toppings including chorizo, kale, green chilis and pulled pork from which I could have built my sandwich.
With options like a fruit plate or cup, house-made granola and the Greek yogurt parfait, it’s easy to make breakfast at Park & Main a balanced and healthy meal. If I were visiting Breck to hike, ski or partake in other outdoor activities, I’d want to begin my day here.
Although I didn’t get to partake in the boozy brunch beverages available all day long at Park & Main, I could see myself hanging on the patio with a couple mimosas before a more relaxing day in the mountains to shop downtown or unwind at one of the many spas.

I dined at Park & Main as a guest of GoBreck the Official Breckenridge Resort Chamber. As always, all opinions are my own.
