Backcountry Pizza Eggplant parm sandwich is awesome!
Crosscut Pizzeria and Taphouse Best pizza in CO
Pioneer Inn Cool spot to work an watch a game
New Moon Bakery and Cafe This is a great place for a morning meeting. Quiche and coffee is my breakfast of choice here.
1 W 1st St, Nederland CO — (303) 258-3569
Kathmandu The best Nepalese food over 8000 feet!
Big Daddy Bagels If they have the green Chile bagel you owe it to yourself to try it with a Santa Fe. Great breakfast bagel.
106 N Rubey Dr, Golden CO — (303) 279-1481
Ali Baba Grill Food is good but service has really gone down hill.
109 N Rubey Dr, Golden CO — (303) 279-2228

D'Deli Best Sandwich in Colorado.
Cafe 13 Good eats ! Pesto anything is a hit.
Snarf's Sandwiches Got the prime rib on gluten free, and it was on point. The peppers do have a kick, but still tolerable. Would recommend.
Woody's Pizza The pizza buffet is a must. Sure, unlimited salad and soup, but unlimited pizza??? Crazy good.
Table Mountain Grill & Cantina Bison burger is yummy. (Not game tasting at all!!)
Bob's Atomic Burgers Hailed as the best burgers in Golden, Bob's Atomic does not disappoint. 1 large fry will feed 2. If you order a double, order extra cheese. They only use one slice on a double. Place gets busy!

Thai Gold Restaurant Lunch specials and Thai coffee
714 14th St, Golden CO — (303) 593-1715
