Worth a try

Out of the restaurants that we tried during this visit, I liked this one best and will return. The B & B offers three meals a day, which is a tall task. They had a relatively short menu for dinner but there were enough interesting choices to make you think. Definitely a plus to be a meat eater... read more

Based on previous reviews we were somewhat hesitant to come for breakfast. Other reviewers said the food was delicious but the wait and service might have been questionable. We arrived around 9:30am and there was a small line to order. It took us 5-10 minutes to get to the front. The seating was full but by the time we ordered... More

Wish we had eaten here before our last day. This would have been or go to for breakfast every morning.

High hopes for the brisket sandwich recommended by the waitress. Served a sandwich of fat and tendon, which wasn't cooked enough to bite through. Seems like a good place overall....and my friends quesadilla was good. Service was nice and friendly and helpful.

Don't let the long line deceive you. It moved quickly the day we went for breakfast. We took our breakfast burritos to go. They are the best breakfast burritos in town! I've honestly never tried anything else on the menu, but i'm sure it's probably good. This is a must try when visiting Telluride.

Had a great kale salad here as well as their breakfast burrito which was pretty good. Also had the chocolate croissant which was truly one of the best I've ever had. Definitely worth a visit!

This is an update to my last note. Since my last review, The Butcher & The Baker has been remodeled and now has now also become one of my favorite casual dining options in the magical town of Telluride. Breakfast is still the hot spot with many daily and regular specials to choose from. I still think the breakfast burrito... More

If you order the egg sandwich on a homemade English muffin and you want it well done you must ask. My egg was over easy and the yolk was all over. My fault as I never asked for a well done sandwich. My husband loved it. He said it was so fresh. I ended up eating a muffin and a... More
