Everyone gets hungry on the mountain! Arapahoe Basin restaurants are all situated within the ski area, either at the base or mid-mountain. Whether you’re looking for morning coffee, lunch, snacks or après ski cocktails, Arapahoe Basin restaurants offer a little bit of something for everyone. In the A-Frame base lodge, Coffee Corner serves a myriad of hot drinks and juices with pastries and other snacks to give you that energy boost before hitting the slopes. The Legends Café offers grab-and-go cafeteria service with made-to-order grilled items plus Italian and Asian stations and an early breakfast call-time during the 7 a.m. hour. The 6th Alley Bar & Grill is the place to share your post-adventure mountain tales of conquered hills and wipeouts and is famous for their bacon Bloody Marys. Opened in 2007, the Black Mountain Lodge is the perfect spot for a hearty lunch of smoked beef brisket, bison chili, ribs or salad. And while there are no overnights at Black Mountain Lodge, this mid-mountain Arapahoe Basin restaurant offers a popular moonlight dinner series with different themes each season.
