Enjoy breakfast or lunch while sitting under an umbrella on our picturesque patio located next to Soda Creek. The patio is a popular gathering place for locals and guests. The Creekside Café’s patio is located off Lincoln Avenue; a quiet reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Steamboat’s main street is offered. There is not a better way to start your day than with a wonderful breakfast on a patio surrounded by flowers, listening to Soda Creek bubbling away on a perfect bluebird morning in Steamboat.
Our incredible flower garden is maintained for your enjoyment by Kathleen at Kinnikinnick. Kathleen is a longtime local with a great love for flowers. Most of the annuals in the garden are purchased at the Soda Creek Elementary School flower fundraiser.
The Creekside dining room offers an unparalleled charming atmosphere. The hand painted cloud ceiling with brick walls adorned with wild flowers make you feel like you are part of a perfect Colorado summer day even when it is snowing buckets outside. Huge picture windows will allow you to comfortably view winter or summer. New this year are two large locally commissioned stained glass pieces. These truly amazing glass works make a perfect dinning room even better.
History of Building
The Soda Creek building was built in 1920. It is on the state historical register and part of the Steamboat historical building walking tour. Carl Howelson, the father of ski flying and the namesake of Howelson Hill, is said to have laid the bricks for the building himself. The Soda Creek building was a Laundry, Montgomery Ward, bakery and even a night club before becoming the Creekside Café in 1999.
About the Art
Every month the Creekside Café features a new collection of local art. The Creekside was one of the founding members of the Steamboat Frist Friday ArtWalk and continues to support the arts with the ArtWalk. The ArtWalk is held the first Friday of every month from 5PM-8PM. There are 13-20 stops depending on the month. Wine and lite snacks are served.
