Lisa and David Stowe were joined by the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, community members and staff as they held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday morning at their new restaurant, Blackhorse Mercantile and Cafe at 103 W. Walker in downtown Breckenridge.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

The menu includes mostly sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts, as well as beer, wine and other beverages. Lisa said the menu will be expanded as the restaurant becomes more established.

“We’ve had a lot of help from a lot of people, and we’ve had a really great start,” Lisa said.

Blackhorse is located in the historical building formerly known as The Popular, and Lisa said their aim for the restaurant’s decor — with its hardwood floors, high ceilings and old photos of Breckenridge — was “1920’s Prohibition Era.” Another expansion will include eventually opening up the building’s second floor as a lounge area for adults, she said.

The mercantile portion of the business is still an in-progress project, Lisa said. She plans to add some items for sale, including gift baskets.

The Stowes, who own Caddo Creek Investments, a property rental company, and Stowe’s Independent Services, a plumbing and HVAC business, also are in the process of building a new house on Jackson Street as part of a project to add more single-family homes to Breckenridge.
