  • 2. Bella La Crema

    Two words: butter bar. Lyons is home to the world's first butter bar, Bella La Crema, where the name of the game is discovering how butter can be the delicious focal point of a meal. Stop by for a warm, crusty baguette and four generous samples of compound butter, all flavored with herbs and spices ranging from tarragon to turmeric.

    On the menu at this tiny bistro, you’ll find savory staples like “French Countryside,” made with rosemary, garlic, thyme and herbs de Provence, and “Ode to Neruda,” made with paprika, garlic, onions and lime. For those with a sweet tooth, there’s “Hollidays Bourbon,” which combines bourbon, orange juice, bacon, molasses, maple, cloves, cinnamon, and vanilla, and “Mayan Chocolate Muse,” made with chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, and cayenne.

  • 3. Snacks at St. Vrain Market

    If it's a quick, familiar - but still delicious - snack you're searching for, look no further than the St. Vrain Market. The Market offers fresh baked goods, handmade deli sandwiches, homemade sausage and specialty meats, fresh local produce, to-go drinks, and shelves of convenient snacks and grocery items.
