After a long day on the slopes you may not be able to feel your fingers or toes. Some tend to head straight for a glass of whiskey to warm up, but if you’re in the mood for some food what better way to warm yourself from the inside out than have some soup? With a lot of places offering soups, it’s hard to choose the best spot. Check out the following places in Summit County for a nice homemade chowder.
Soupz On: This tiny restaurant in a strip mall may not seem like much, but it is quite literally the best soup around. Hands down our favorite lunch spot throughout our Breckenridge office, our employees probably give them the most consistent business week by week. Each day, Soupz On offers a variety of homemade soups, salads and sandwiches. All the soup recipes have been crafted to perfection by the owners and they update their menu online every morning so you can check out their selection prior to hitting the road.
Pho Bay II: Located near the lobby of the Baymont Inn and Suites, this may not seem like your typical go-to for a great bowl of noodles.
