Finding a good coffee shop is as much a part of travel as finding a wave or a powder stash.
Coffee shops are truly that ‘third place’; a great way to get a taste of a new town, talk to some locals behind the coffee bar, and see whether there are people posting up in there to work, talk, just read the paper, or some combination of all of them.

Frisco is truly a gateway to the playgrounds of Colorado that line the I-70 corridor.
Whether it’s turning south towards Breckenridge or continuing west to Copper Mountain, Vail, or beyond, Frisco is a great place to lay over or just refuel.
As Frisco has grown, so have its options for great coffee. So here are some great Frisco coffee shops to keep you ready for action.
Mountain Dweller Coffee Bar & Roastery
When it comes to making things fresh, it’s hard to compete with the folks at Mountain Dweller Coffee. The coffee here is roasted right in Frisco (in their Outer Range Brewing facility I might add). What can I say, they like things done right here.
Mountain Range is located on the north side of town, so it’s super convenient for swinging through off of the highway. Although, if you’re just cruising Main Street you might miss it for one of the other spots in town.
I would recommend making the effort though, their coffee shop is an amazing place to hang out, take a break, or maybe get some work done on that powder day you just played hookie from.
Or just kick back on their patio and enjoy the amazing views.
Rocky Mountain Coffee Roasters
Rocky Mountain Coffee Roasters offers another option for great, locally roasted coffee right in Frisco.
If you’re cruising Main Street and find the urge for a fresh cup, well, this is your spot.
The cafe is inviting in a classic Colorado log home sort of way, and there are some tables out front to bask in the sun and soak in the views.
Abbey’s Coffee is located right at the intersection of Main Street and Summit Blvd, making it perfectly located for people just cruising town or making that run to, or from, Breck.
Abbey’s might lack that fresh roasted scene that Mountain Dweller or Rocky Mountain Coffee Roasters can offer, but they do have a great patio, and sometimes location just wins out.
Dee Dee’s Cart
If you end up skipping Frisco and heading on up to Breck, or are just out on that end of town, be sure to check out Dee Dee’s Cart as an alternative to the traditional coffee shops in town.
