What’s better than warming up with a cup of coffee after a day on the slopes or maybe you need your cup of joe before you head out in the morning?
These seven coffee shops in Steamboat Springs are the perfect places to get your caffeine fix.
While many people think of Steamboat as a ski destination, their downtown area is super cute with lots of great restaurants and boutiques.
I highly recommend spending at least one morning or afternoon exploring the town, what it has to offer, and supporting small businesses! Check out my Steamboat Springs travel guide for more help planning a trip to Steamboat!
7 Coffee Shops in Steamboat Springs
Big Iron Coffee Co.
Big Iron has its own roastery located on the outskirts of town and the cutest coffee shop downtown in the middle of the action.
There is pretty good signage and it’s easy to find using Maps on your phone but when you come to a plaza area – Old Town Square – you just walk down the stairs and go to your left.
If you’re looking for breakfast, they do have a few items like bagels and breakfast burritos as well as some baked goods.
They serve all kinds of coffee drinks plus locally brewed kombucha. When I visited there were a number of people working inside. The interior is pretty spacious but I could see how it would get crowded on a busy day.
Patio seating is available here when the weather is nice!

Here’s a funky local’s spot that you’ll love! It’s located in a house a few streets over from the main road in downtown Steamboat.
With all your typical coffee shop drinks plus their own signature drinks, this is a great stop if you want something new.
You’ll also find quick breakfast options like sandwiches, burritos, and quiche plus locally-made baked goods.
There is an upper and a lower level for seating and you could tell that there were lots of locals here for their morning cup of joe.

Off the Beaten Path Bookstore and Coffeehouse
Who doesn’t love a good local bookstore with a coffee shop? If you need to get some work done then they have tables upstairs and a great little work area.
At the cafe, you’ll find muffins, croissants, and other baked goods. They also have tons of coffee options and they even serve boozy coffee drinks.
You’ll find the bookstore on a side street just off of Lincoln Avenue downtown. They have tons of great books to choose from plus games, puzzles, and other gift items.
This was one of my favorite coffee shops in Steamboat Springs!

Powder Day Donuts
Get here early or they will be sold out! We came by Powder Day Donuts around 10:30 am I believe on a Friday and they were already closed.
While this is technically a donut shop and not a coffee shop, who doesn’t drink coffee with their donuts? Okay, maybe I’m just addicted to coffee but still.
Steamboat Springs Coffee Roasters makes a blend called Powder Morning that’s sold here at Powder Day.
I was able to get some of their donuts on the mountain and they are DELISH. Definitely stop by here when you’re downtown – it’s one street over from the bookstore and just off of the main street.
Address: 10th Street | Website: Powder Day Donuts
Coffee in the morning and wine in the evening? Count me in!
In case you’re looking for a coffee shop that’s at the mountain instead of downtown, here it is. You’ll find this coffee shop by Torian Plum, behind Los Locos and Slopeside Grill.
In the mornings they serve coffee with a few different small breakfast items and in the afternoons they have wine tastings at two different times.
This is the perfect place if you’re looking for somewhere quick to hit before you get on the lift or if you’re waiting on someone who’s skiing or boarding.

Burlap & Berry Coffee Co.
Burlap & Berry is a little difficult to find if you are familiar with the area but when we visited there was a sign by Lincoln Avenue pointing out which way to go.
You have to walk a block back from the main road and then turn the corner. In a little alcove, you’ll find a walk-up window to order.
It’s a great place if you want a cup of coffee while you walk around to some of the other places downtown.
In addition to coffee, they also serve breakfast sandwiches, smoothies, and smoothie bowls.
The bowls looked SO good and I would have gotten one if it hadn’t been 5 below 0 outside.
Address: 56 7th Street | Website: Burlap & Berry
Dusky Grouse Coffee
I’m so mad that this didn’t show up on my search when I was planning which coffee shops to visit in town! It looks super cute.
Dusky Grouse is a newer coffee shop in Steamboat and the reviews are great. It’s a coffee shop and record store which makes it pretty unique!
They have a huge list of drinks that you can order and a good amount of breakfast food to choose from including burritos, bagels, and local pastries.
