After the Silver Dollar Lake hike it was time to make my way down Guanella pass back into Georgetown. Finding food in Clear Creek County has been a bit challenging as some places are doing dine-in, some take out and some are still closed. I found the Whistle Stop Cafe just past downtown. It is a small building on the side of the road but they had a blinking open sign in the window and an old timey sign with the word cafe in it and that was enough for me.
The cafe wasn’t doing dine in and they had the menu on the window. I don’t know why I went against my gut on my ordering today but I kinda regret it now. I am still thinking of how amazing a country fried steak sandwich would be but I have a wedding to go to tomorrow so I need my dress pants to fit for one more day.
So I went with the seemingly (in my mind) healthier choice. I ordered the beef and bean “famous” burrito and it came smothered in green chili. The burrito was huge. I could barely finish half of it even after my hike. I liked the green chili. It had a sneaky spice to it that kicked in a bit after the bite that was nice. Not too hot but just a good amount of heat. The burrito was a challenge to eat in the back of my car. I am a bit out of practice at that lately. The beef was good but there were a lot of beans and they overtook the flavors of the burrito. They were good but with every bite the majority flavor was of re-fried beans. They also had breakfast items, burgers and sandwiches on the menu and are open for breakfast and lunch.
If you find yourself in Georgetown and are looking for some food, give them a shot. I have also added them to my interactive map section of the website which you can find here.
