Located at 1067 Notorious Blair St. in the heart of Silverton, Colorado’s red light district. In the last seven years, the restaurant has undergone major renovations to bring you food made from scratch and craft beer! With the addition of our 7bbl brewery, we serve six of our very own elevated ales we hand craft just for you with some of the best tasting water on the planet! Summer 2016 has brought us new menus with lots of options including our all new appetizers. We are serving up the same great artisan pizzas, wraps, and salads you've come to know. Don’t believe us? Ask a local! We’ve won the Taste of Silverton four years in a row and won the Certificate of Excellence from trip advisor. We hope you love our place as much as we do.

“Great Hot Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Whilst in Silverton this summer, every morning I would meander on over to the Avalanche to get a coffee to go. Really good dark roast! Great place to start the day.

“Avalanche is the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Avalance cafe is perfect setting for a quick lunch or coffee. Sandwiches big and tasty.
I'm usually not a fan of micro beer, but the IPA was delicious. Staff was courteous and attentive.
Definitely be back my next trip to Silverton.

“We LOVED the pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Stopped in by chance for a cold one and something to eat. It's kind of a self serve place where the silver and bussing are done by yourself. No problem here however. Everything is home made from what I was told from someone later on. They brew their own beers and the Pride of the West Porter was some of the best porter we ever had!!! My wife also tried a Hot White Russian type drink and loved it. The drink choices were creative and had the cute descriptions that she loves and has to try.

We decided on the Neopolitano pizza. OMG. The favors were awesomely fresh and worked SO well together. Must have been that home made pesto sauce... Then comes the crust. It was done to perfection. Perfect firmness, perfect chewy-ness, perfect all around texture. I rate this piece of artistic creation as in the top echelon of pizza experiences I have ever had. I can not believe I had to go to Silverton Colorado to find it. Upon talking to the pizzaiolo, the dough is indeed made in house along with other ingredients. (Like I thought different?) He then offered me a slice of a green chili sauce based pizza with sausa fresca and things I can't remember except that the favors were well married and the thing was outta this world! (I AM a green chili lover at heart)

There is also a chalk board with tons of creative caffeine drinks and other items. Definitely worth a try. You can't miss the place because the fence surrounding the patio is made up of old and colorful snow skis. Just another tribute to the creativity born in this place.

“Nice location, views, and staff -- and the IPA was quite tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

We visited the Avalanche this year for the sole purpose of trying the brew. Admittedly, we are hopheads and IPA freaks, which means that we love a good IPA, and we're critical of the bad stuff. If you like IPA, try the Avalanche IPA -- it's fresh, smooth, doesn't have a malty aftertaste (hopheads rejoice!), and boasts local ingredients! Now granted it's not going to punch you in the face with hops (like Ska's Modus or Dry Dock's Hop Abomination), but it is really well-balanced. The brewer is very nice and will provide details about the beer, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Sit on their porch for amazing views, good beer, and enjoy the wonder of Silverton.

“#1 in Silverton?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Visited based on TA #1 rating. While coffee and bakery may be acceptable, sandwich---not. Had (staff recommended) Reuben ---very sub-par---laden with fat. In a tourist town, the locals must have pumped up the reviews for their buddies to attract tourists.
