First bite confirmed we found the perfect place!

Excellent food, friendly server and contemporary decor. For the last night of a ski trip at Purgatory, was looking for reasonably priced, high quality fresh food. Cypress Cafe hit the mark.

Durango is full of interesting restaurants. Cyprus Cafe ranks right at the top. The food was flavorful. I had salmon stuffed with tapenade, feta, and lemon, and wrapped in grape leaves. It was delicious. For dessert, the walnut cake was a little dry - really needed a sauce of some kind. But the coffee was amazing - it's a special... More

I'd had a couple of not especially good meals, Friday dinner at the Ore House and Saturday breakfast at Oscar's, so I was very glad to have a satisfying meal here at the Cyprus Cafe. I never saw the prior iteration, but I really liked the feeling of the new place, clean and contemporary but not cold. Perhaps a little... More

I am a local and Cyprus Cafe's menu is a refreshing change of pace. Service is better there than many Durango restaurants, too.

I loved the local Short Rib dish I had there and loved siting in the velvet covered seating. The new interior and menu are creative, welcoming and unique. The cocktail menu is decadent and over the top tasty. Also had excellent service.

The Cyprus Cafe has a new look! The inside is more open, brighter and crisp. The Gyros and salads are still great. The service is still friendly and helpful. A classy place to have lunch or when weather permits - desert and a glass of wine on the outside patio.

Cyprus Café is a perfect place to sit and relax, enjoy a glass of wine and take in the beauty of Durango. The food is prepared to perfection each time you order, the wine is chilled to the right temperature and the local ingredients make each experience so enjoyable. The staff at Cyprus are attentive and friendly. I recommend this... More
