Great Place For Breakfast If In Telluride

A great place for breakfast if in Telluride. There was a line to the door on both days I visited. I recommend the breakfast burrito. I would eat here again if in the area. Highly Recommend.

Went here for breakfast on a referral from hotel's concierge. Hip design very casual atmosphere. I ordered the Chilaquiles with egg and I got basically your crispy nachos. The dish was totally made off but it seemed my next door neighbors were happy to reorder it after visiting the restaurant couple of weeks ago. The coffee tasted bitter and stale... More

My new Telluride breakfast spot. Order the breakfast sandwich. The coffee is great, too! Friendly staff and a fun morning scene.

When we arrived, my husband stepped up to the counter and ordered a Mojito. My daughter and I were not sure what we wanted to eat so we had him order his drink first. We ended up ordering “Scoops” of the different offering that they had. We went with two scoops of the Arugula Salad, one scoop of the Caprese... More

A wonderful place to stop in for a bite! I had a light lunch. It was delicious. Great environment, albeit a bit hot from the ovens!

After a couple nights in the wilderness a big breakfast was calling. We drove into town and were surprised how few breakfast places existed. The Butcher was slammed - so we decided to stop. Two guys ordered burritos and I the bacon and eggs. My buddy and I decided to split an order of $12 pancakes. The burritos were out... More

after looking at the menu we went here for lunch since there were a number of food choices available, from sandwiches to salads to fruit, etc. Some in our group were looking for something light and others wanted something heavier, this was the perfect spot. Food was really good.

Hit or miss. Restaurant trying hard to be creative but not succeeding on a consistent basis. We waited a long time for our food and the wait staff, although very friendly, was not particularly attentive or effective. It seems as if they are still working out the kinks and have more ambition than they have skill.

The people here are just wonderful. This place is emblematic of so much of what is right about Telluride. It just belongs here. The service people inside are so helpful and sweet, as well as sunny in general. This place just makes me happy. It is pet-friendly, as you will note immediately because there are almost always dogs sitting by... More

We hit this joint as the crowds cleared away after the 4th of July parade. Mobs of people but worth the wait for the food (ordered at the counter and delivered by cheerful wait staff). Menu is limited but carefully prepared with a couple of nice specials. I got the last pulled pork sandwich and felt lucky. Chicken wrap was... More
