Glenwood Springs Breakfast Menu

This handsome menu has a beautiful color cover that is unfortunately paired with an incomprehensible and unlikely Indian legend on the back. A date printed on the inside is August 12, 1938.

The a la carte side offered trout for breakfast for 90 cents–almost $16 in today’s money–as well as calf’s liver, lamb chops, and a variety of other items for slightly lower prices. For just 85 cents, the most expensive full breakfast on the table d’hôte side provided a choice of griddle cakes with bacon or egg with corned beef hash, bacon, or ham. The full breakfast also came with fruit, cereal, bread, and a beverage.
