New Menu Beautiful Patio!

Came in to try the new menu. Like the menu changes. Enjoyed the tasty ribs. On a beautiful day the patio is hard to beat.

The cafe is small, but has a fireplace and a view of the river. The food is the best in Salida. We had grilled salmon (which was very fresh and flavorful), grilled vegetables, quinoa, and pad thai with chicken. We like the food and prices so much that we returned the following evening. That night, we loved the bacon-jalapeno soup,... More

Good food, staff is nice, menu is quite diverse, great decor. Thought that it was a little pricey, but otherwise nice place to have dinner.

Luncheon seems to be the best bet. It has a great gift shop next door where you can taste and buy their Mountain Spirit Winery wines.

Went for valentines dinner specials. The quality of the food was poorly cooked, cold and the crab legs were terribly over cooked. One of our party ordered a steak that was cooked improperly. The rest of the party was done eating before it came back over cooked. We have eaten here every time we come and this was not the... More

We have eaten here before for lunch and loved it. We made reservations for valentine's night. Very disappointed. They had specials. I got the king crab and filet for $37. The crab legs were not king. They were snow crab and all dried out. It was honestly like crab jerky. I sent them back and the second order was a... More

We were recommended to this café by a local and the food was quite good. The blackened tuna sandwich was great though the cashew chicken had far too many pea pods and zucchini in it. The most disappointing aspect of the visit was the service though. We were seated without a word of welcome or explanation The waitress walked past... More

We went for dinner on a Fri night and were the only ones there. Should have been a warning. The food was mixed...some good some bad. The beef lamb gyro was very dry and dessicated and had clearly been cut hours ahead. The tzaiki (sp) was good with dill. But they were very spare on amount. You could barely taste... More

O.K. Maybe a dining room fireplace isn't a rare bird in Colorado, but we're from Alabama and had been driving in twenty degree weather. When the hostess seated us right by the pretty fireplace, I was charmed. You are also guaranteed a table near the window. I say this because, as I remember it, one entire wall was mostly window,...
