Ullr’s Sports Bar, which fast became a go-to late-night hangout in Breckenridge’s Main Street Station when it arrived four years ago, changed its name and identity over the summer to comply with new operating hours at the complex. Now reopened as Poached, the breakfast joint retains a hint of the sports pub it all-too-briefly was. “We call it a breakfast bar,” says co-owner James Boyer. Five benedicts (and 14 draft beers) anchor the menu, including a bruschetta benny and the Southern benny: fried cornbread, a chorizo patty, and house-made green chili over two poached eggs. Best of all, should you find yourself in the late-riser category (i.e., hungover), breakfast is served until 4 p.m. 970-547-5950

Arapahoe Café, Dillon  You’d be hard pressed to find a ski-town breakfast spot that has been around longer than “A Café,” which opened in 1945. Get the Lake Hill Scramble—three eggs with house-smoked salmon, spinach, tomatoes, and cheese—or, if you anticipate a bell-to-bell ski day, Duane’s Garbage Plate: a bowl of home fries, chicken-fried steak, Canadian bacon, and smoked cheddar blanketed by cracked-pepper gravy and topped with two eggs., 970-468-0873

Mountain Lyon, Silverthorne  The massive breakfast burrito is this 20-year-old standby’s claim to fame. It has three scrambled eggs, ham, sausage, chorizo, onions, tomatoes, peppers, and cheese, all wrapped in a warm flour tortilla, topped with the restaurant’s award-winning pork green chili, and served with potatoes … for $8.95. 970-262-6229

Log Cabin Cafe, Frisco  Try the namesake Log Cabin Omelet, a scrumptious mix of ham, green chiles, onion, and cheddar (with a side of salsa), served with a homemade biscuit and hash browns or grits. Need more than an omelet? Splurge for the Mountain Man Special: three hotcakes “as big as your head” with a six-ounce steak and two eggs., 970-668-3947 

Amazing Grace, Breckenridge  The B.O.B., or Basic Organic Breakfast, is a go-to at the Grace, which welcomes you inside an 1889 yellow landmark at the corner of French and Lincoln streets. You get three eggs scrambled with cheese, spinach, and tomato, whole-wheat toast, and either veggie or organic chicken-apple sausage. Try one of the homemade scones, too, especially if the flavor of the day is blueberry., 970-453-1445
