Kennebec Cafe is lovely and their food is perfect! Yum! Yum! I went for brunch on a Sunday afternoon with my Father and his wife. We had omelets and crab cakes with home fries and black beans. Atmosphere is nice outside and the building inside is beautiful. Due to tourism it is not necessary to dress up if you would... More

I would highly recommend this outstanding restaurant to anyone visiting the Durango/Cortez area. It rivals or beats any of the Durango restaurants. It is really somewhat out in the middle of nowhere and is therefore surprising in its content and quality. The food was very good as was the service. I'm very picky when it comes to restaurants and virtually... More

My husband and I stopped in for Sunday brunch. We were on our way to 4 wheel La Plata Canyon. We were so glad we stopped! The breakfast was so amazing. Try the scone, the sweet cream and raspberry jam were over the top.

On a recent visit to Mesa Verde in Colorado, the Kennbec Cafe was recommended by our Innkeeper. A reservation was made for 7:30 for which we arrived at 7:20. We were seated around 7:45. The restaurant did indeed appear to be busy. We were promptly attended to by a male waiter and our drink order was taken and served. Appropriately,... More

We experienced a very good meal from a varied dinner menu along with some reasonably priced wine offerings. Our server was quite helpful guiding my wife through her dietary restrictions. If you have the opportunity to dine at Kennebec, give it a try.

We we referred to this wonderful resturant 10 years ago by Blue Lake Ranch and have returned every time we are in the Durango area. The chef always has a great offering, the staff are exceptional. We love this place and look forward to another visit.

My husband and I were so surprised! This is not just a cafe. It is a beautiful, peaceful, quiet, romantic restaurant! It was a lovely evening so we chose to eat outside. Service was exceptional and food was delicious! Would highly recommend!

Was staying at a nearby ranch and they recommended Kennebec. My business friend and I decided to check it out and WOW was an awesome place. Excellent service, excellently prepared food and a nice casual relaxing dining experience. Miguel and Barbara are great hosts and have a wonderful establishment that I look forward to returning to and recommending to others.
