No matter when you come to The Stone House, it’s likely to be full of people enjoying the ambiance, attentive service, and, of course, delicious food. They have a wide variety of choices to suit even the pickiest person in your party, from the appetizers graced with the flavor of sweet Asian chili sauce to the house specialty smoke-roasted prime rib, which comes with a sauce made from port and apple horseradish. The ‘Italia’ section of their menu is definitely worth having a look at, especially because the building itself has an Italian feel.

Fittingly located in an old house, walking into The Coffee Trader is like coming to an extension of your home. Start with the staff who knows all the regulars and always provides a warm welcome. The coffee, unsurprisingly, is very good, and you can enjoy a fresh scone or other pastry with it while you relax, either in their cozy interior or outside on the veranda. With those two options, it’s the perfect place for both warm and cold weather. You can also reserve the upstairs room for meetings, the owners are very civic minded, and local groups of all stripes often take advantage of this aspect of the coffee house.

Exciting décor, huge portions, and low prices, these things might not usually go together, but at Mi Mexico, you’ll find all three. Although it opened fairly recently, Montrose residents have already embraced Mi Mexico as a staple in their list of options, so you’ll often find it quite crowded. Their menu is extensive, and it includes more than just your average burritos and quesadillas (although, of course, you’ll find those too). They have a section of healthy choices, perfect if you’re trying to follow a diet but still delicious. If you’re having a hard time deciding, the staff is always happy to give recommendations.

There’s a reason Thai cuisine is renowned worldwide, and Chang Thai Cuisine is the best place to get it in Montrose. Visitors from all over swear that it’s the best Thai food anywhere around. The portions are very large, far exceeding what you’d expect to get for the price. The curries are quite authentic, and that means spicy, so if you’re sensitive to that sort of thing, warn them in advance. If you’re an adventurous eater, however, this is definitely the place for you.
