Hidden Gem

This is a small coffee shop hidden in a small strip mall with great food and coffees. After discovering it we returned for breakfast and lunch.

Very nice atmosphere, comfortable tables by the window as well as seating outside. The food looked good though we just had coffee.

Never ceases to amaze me how people fancy themselves coffee shop owners and baristas, invest their money and energy in making a coffee shop - and yet not know how to make even half decent coffee. If you own a coffee shop, why in the world wouldn't you want to make top notch coffee???? Certainly charged full price and then... More

I do like to come here for coffee when I am in town. Although my family and I feel like we get worse service and treatment because we are not locals. This causes us to not go there sometimes. The coffee is good though.

Best coffee ever. Lots of bakery treats - muffins, cookies, lemon bars etc. I go here as often as I can when I come to Pagosa Springs.

We come once a year and love the coffee, great treats, consistent quality. Clean place and convenient location. The only thing, unless your a local you get ignored and obviously not equal service. If you don't mind a cold shoulder, you will get some great coffee!

My sincere apologies. While we are certainly the locals choice for coffee it is our objective to make everyone feel like they are a local. Again sorry for this experience, and thank you for your patience during these extremely busy holidays. More

Look into this coffeehouse a little before your trip- they have art classes & it would be a fun date night while on vacation! I wish we knew about it earlier, my husband & I would have had a lot of fun!
