We love the fact that they use locally sourced meats and produce and have organic options. Wait staff has always been pleasant and... read more

I went there as part of a "girls' night out." There was about a 30-minute wait, the restaurant was short-staffed so we only saw the waitress once--to take our orders. The cashier had to get our checks for us. The food was still cold in the middle so was obviously something re-heated and it didn't get hot all the way... More

We stopped here for lunch while passing through Canon City and before visiting the Prisons Museum. This last week of November 2015 was snowy and construction had part of Main Street closed so they were operating fewer days of the week than usual. The construction had the westbound traffic on Main diverted elsewhere and made the walk a bit messy.... More

This place has really excellent food with usually good waitstaff. But I love the fantastic displays of art that is offered throughout the two story restaurant that has quiet cozy areas. The food is a step above most that is offered around the downtown area. There are too many places for kids to get lost in. When my kids were... More
