We stopped at Rocky Mountain Funnel Cakes after a day of hiking and exploring the area.

We tried the Black Forest Cherry and Raspberry Chocolate, which they kindly divided on halves of 1 funnel cake. Each funnel cake is big enough for 2-4 people!

Service was quick and friendly. There are maps so you can note where you came from to visit this fun stop in Silverton.

Don't miss this friendly gem on your next stop through Silverton!

Kendall Mountain Cafe

Reviewed By ColoradoMtnMan60 - Durango

Went in at lunch time for a reuben and fries for about $10. The sandwich arrived very hot along with hot french fries, a nice change from most restaurants. The rueben looked somewhat small until I picked it up and noticed how thick it was, the meat was thick sliced and savory, the sauerkraut was hot with loads of melted cheese. The thousand island dressing was served on the side, it was good but could have been better. This is an old house with unlevel floors and an assortment of tables and chairs, you don't eat the furniture so don't worry about it. The menu is small as they try to make everything well and to order. The sandwich was messy as it was overflowing over the bread, I used the fork to scoop up what fell out of the bread. An extra napkin is handy with this sandwich. Go and enjoy a quaint old style cafe without fancy trappings. I would go again without question.

Cafe Mobius

Reviewed By SeekingKate

We went in for ice cream, which was delicious, but the biggest reason I liked this place was the staff. We only had an hour to look around before we had to get on the train back to Durango and I was trying to mail some post cards. The post office was closed though so I asked at the counter of Möbius if they sold stamps. The girl (I wish I remembered her name) told me the only place she knew of was the post office. I told her it was closed for lunch and wouldn't open until after we were due back on the train. She told me to leave the post cards with her and she would get stamps and mail them. They post cards were in the mail waiting for us when we got home from vacation! Thank you so much for doing that for me, and my mom and daughter LOVED their ice cream. Thanks again!

Coreiann was great!

We were there for lunch after a camping trip.

Pros: Delicious food and beer, atmosphere, friendly staff.

Cons: We were lucky we were there a little before noon so we had an easy time ordering and seating ourselves. It got pretty busy. Since there is only one register for ordering and payment, it was also a good 15+ minutes of standing in line just to pay the check when we were done, which was frustrating.

Went there twice during my trip, both times after hiking all day. Got the iced americano both times and they were delicious. Not a ton of options here, or many places to sit. Would go back again for that iced americano!

A typical ice cream parlor with manufactured rather than homemade ice cream...right on a convenient corner...often when we go to Silverton though we find that it's closed.

The Grand Restaurant and Saloon

Reviewed By rottenreba - sonoma county

Went in because we saw live music and my favorite--ragtime piano player! But Lacey Black is more than that! Large repertoire! She knows more than 1000 songs by memory! Great interior; beautiful bar! Very sweet and attentive waitress! My green chile/pork soup was very yummy but spicier than the waitress had suggested. My hubbies club sandwich and fries were divine!!!

Thee Pitts Again

Reviewed By Ken Y - Montpelier, Idaho, United States

I expected in this tourist trap town that the place would be rude, and barely edible, but the help was unbelievable friendly, worked with my sister who wanted to be gluten free, and delivered a great meal. the waiter was the owner, and he brought us our food, and even checked back to see if everything was good, even though the place was packed.
