Moffat Market at Winter Park Resort
Winter Park Resort just seems to be racking up the awards of late. Skiing magazine just named Winter Park’s Moffat Market as the fourth best Ski-Resort Cafeteria. That is not bad as the building it operates in is quite old compared to the others on Skiing Magazines top ten list.
The Moffat Market was the highest ranked Colorado ski cafeteria and Vail’s Two Elks Lodge was the only other Colorado cafeteria ranked and they came in at number six.
Here is what Skiing Magazine had to say about the Winter Park Moffat Market:
Moffat Market, a railroad-themed food court (named after the Moffat Tunnel, a 6.2.-mile-long railroad tunnel that has its west end at Winter Park ski resort), offers food from around the world. There’s New York-style pizza at Grand Central Station, Tex-Mex at Santa Fe Station, and Asian noodle bowls at the Umami Station. We recently tried a veggie coconut curry bowl with rice noodles here—and were blown away by how spicy and delicious it was.
We recently had a chicken burrito at the Moffat Market and I have to say it was a huge burrito and very tasty. Cost was a little pricey but food at ski resorts is never cheap.
Serving breakfast and lunch, the Moffat Market food court has a railroad theme and offers fresh cuisine and specialties that reflect the different regions of the country and the world. Storefronts and names identify the different food stations with options such as: New York-style pizza at Grand Central Station; Tex-Mex at the Santa Fe Station; enjoy Asian noodle bowls at our newly revamped “Umami” station; and hearty soups at the Shortline. Moffat Market also features an Einstein’s Bagels kiosk for fresh breakfast bagels, and lunch specialties. New this season is a totally revamped breakfast menu at the Moffat Market. Stop by for their specialty, “Eggs Delphia.”
Of course, you go to a ski resort for the good snow and terrain. But you’ve got to eat while you’re there, right? Skiing Magazine has done their research—eating at ski areas all over the country—and have selected the 10 best on-mountain restaurants in ski country. And to call the Moffat Market a cafeteria simply doesn’t do it justice.
