Great Cinnamon Rolls

Get there early if you want one they sell out quick. Also have great Macaroons. They have great options to go and areas to sit and eat in the eclectic dining area.

Whether from the East or West coasts this is the best breakfast in Mancos! Our friends from CT raved at the food. We've taken our LA family there including the one year old twins for a fine meal. The expanded back area was quiet, until we arrived<G>! The waitress very accommodating finding high chairs and helping with the girls. Service... More

My friend and I shared a breakfast of an omelette and a side of two pancakes with coffee. It was an exceptional dish with chorizo,avocado and other ingredients. The omelette, pancakes and real maple syrup were served hot and the pancakes were huge. The help yourself to many fine coffee urns gives you lots of choices. Just the food is... More

We stopped here after a medical appointment in Durango. Read the reviews and decided to take the scenic and short drive from Durango to Mancos to try it out. Arrived just as they started lunch service. Don had the Tuscan pasta and I had the turkey wrap on a GF tortilla. Both meals were excellent. Even more impressive is that... More

We have eaten here a number of times and always enjoy the high quality of food and service. It's partly why we chose to stay in Mancos.

Who would have thought to look two blocks south of the one stop light in Mancos for this hidden jewel. Trip Advisor leads us to yet another great meal. The bakery is in a very old building with few tables - however, a back room provides more space than you realize is there. Benches are available for sittin outside if... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Mesa Verde. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. Our server told us all about the history of the place and encouraged us to look round. It was well worth the stop.

Coming from the 'big city' we weren't use what to expect in this tiny town, but boy did we stumble across a treasure! It was so crowded when we walked in the door early Sunday morning, we could barely make it inside - a sure fire sign we were in the right place. Smiling waitresses and customers a like, everyone...

We stopped in Mancos for a delicious breakfast at the Absolute Bakery and Café. I ordered "the Stack" which was hashbrowns topped with two eggs (any way) topped with bacon and green chilis. Served with homemade bread and jelly too. The atmosphere is quaint and charming; but the food was great. Well worth the stop and taking cookies from the... More
