Ouray in late May?

Ouray in late May?

We will be in Colorado May 19th - 23rd and are trying to figure out which town(s) to visit. We had planned on dividing the time between Telluride and Ouray, but have since learned that May is not a great time to be in Telluride, due to snow melting and mud. We've been told that most restaurants aren't even open in Telluride during May.

Will Ouray be the same, or will we find plently to do during late May? We are hoping to do some hiking and some (guided) mountianeering. Any other recommended activities during that time, or would we be better off staying out of that area altogether? Unfortunately, our travel dates are not flexible.

Yes, there are places that serve breakfast in Ouray. The Papillon Bakery, I'm told, serves an excellent breakfast and Back Street Bagel and Deli has breakfast as well--skillets and such in addition to their yummy bagels. There may be others...not all are open all year.

There are several places that serve breakfast. There is the Backstreet Bagel which does breakfast sandwiches and bagels but it also serves a full hot breakfast. You go to the counter to order but it is delicious.

The Beaumont Hotel has Bulows Bistro and they do breakfast 7 days per week and it opened on May 1.

Maggies Kitchen is on Main Street and they serve breakfast but are closed on Wed & Thurs (at least right now). They also have great burgers at lunch.

LaPappillion is opening up in a new location on Main Street on Mother's Day. They will serve breakfast as well. If you are familiar with Ouray, they have been a great place through the years but were MIA last year. Well, now they are back!

I may have missed one or two but I am sure you will find them. Ouray actually has a large number of restaurants considering its size.
