Make sure you're not in a hurry

This place is fairly new (apparently) and the decor is super cute and probably exactly what I would do if I had my own restaurant. But I wasn't impressed with the service. We went on a busy morning, but were hoping to eat quickly and get on the slopes. We waited for a party to vacate a table, and... read more

This is a nice local place. It is on the main street, but you wont see the sign so use GPS or ask someone. Nice open place inside. Good drinks. Seemed a bit slow in service.

I am so happy that they now have a bigger place. Awesome soups, great wraps and wonderful salads. It is usually packed but now they have more seating!

This establishment needs to figure out how to run a business. Have tried going there over several years, and I realize they relocated and just re-opened, but - YIKES! Placed our order - two breakfast sandwiches and one order of pancakes - at 10:50am. At 11:15, inquired about order. Told "it's coming." The presumption was it would be received relatively... More

small but very busy place, their options in sandwiches, are as you ever imagine. Organic food, home baked bread. The soup i had was home made veggies and was very good. They also have bar options: wine and spirits.

This place is always busy with locals and that, to me, is a sign of good food. We have eaten in many restaurants in Telluride but this one remains a favorite for good simple food, organic and fresh, local veg, home baked breads and soups and especially yummy small plates and sides. We sat inside but there is outside seating... More

THE BEST BREAKFAST SANDWICH I HAVE EVER HAD. Bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant. Lots of other breakfast choices but I wend back for the same thing every day I was there. Everything so fresh, great coffee. Small with indoor and outdoor seating.

The first thing you notice as you approach the Cafe is that it is small and probably pretty crowded. That said the food is delicious and the services is fantastic and friendly. If you're in Telluride, and you don't mind a small, packed place then you can not go wrong with The Butcher & Baker Cafe. A great place for... More

This is our favorite spot for lunch. Everything is fresh, organic and delicious! The chicken salad is chunky and tasty. All the green salad ingredients are from local farmers. You must try the cookies...Yum! Sitting inside or out.
