Perfect ambience and breakfast on the road

We were a group of five on our way from Mesa Verde National Park back up to Denver and this restaurant was exactly what we needed to start our long day of driving.

I visited the bakery on a Sunday morning around 10:30, and it was absolutely packed! As I was traveling solo, I found a place at the bar and ordered a delicious Southwest omelette. The coffee mug was delivered, and I was told it was self serve...what great way to free up busy server's valuable time, and hopefully get people to... More

Wow. Love the baked goods and breakfast food. Very crowded on Sunday morning, but the staff was so friendly and patient. Would come back again!

Huge huge huge portions. And the price can't be beat. Try some red or green chili sauce and be wooed with the local flavor. The pastries are to die for. Grab some to go. (And hope they last past the first mile.) All the servers are super friendly and help serve all the tables. Also tried lavendar lemonade and it... More

If you're in the area, don't miss this place. I stopped for gas and decided to drive thru this little town and am I glad I did. Had a wonderful ham and swiss quiche for lunch, bought a book, loaf of bread and cookies. Staff is friendly, loved the atmosphere as its an old building. Very clean, good smells. Will... More

This is supposed to be a great place to eat but we got there at 10:00 on Sunday and it was packed - there appeared to be tables available outside - there was a man playing guitar on the patio there but inside was chaos - I don't know if it was because it was father's day or what but... More

As we passed through Mancos, we made a special stop at the Absolute Bakery & Cafe to buy some of their very tasty pastries to take with us! This is a must stop for bakery items & a yummy lunch if we're in the area at lunch time. This time, because of all the rain over the last week, the... More

Not a single disappointment in 8 years. Breakfast or lunch either is amazing, fresh and local. Don't forget to grab some bakery items on your way out. From fresh baked bread to coconut macaroons everything is delicious. Let's not forget the wonderful waitresses... service with a smile, a joke and a laugh. Sit back and enjoy the small town atmosphere!

We had lunch at this small bakery and restaurant after seeing reviews on Yelp. We were glad we did! The chicken greek salad was delicious as was the special of the day, tacos. We picked up a couple of bakery treats on the way out to enjoy later. The oatmeal cookie was one of the best I have ever had,... More
