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.

Found it as we were walking around . Packed. My husband had the Sausage Burrito and I had the Bacon Breakfast Sandwich. Maybe the best English Muffin I have ever had. Sign of a good place. They are closing mid Oct to move to a larger location down the street. Reopening 1st week of Dec. Chalkboard lists where the local... More

We tried to eat here, but getting a server to acknowledge us was not happening. I looked right at her and she just ignored me. I am not coming back here.

Only draw back is the place is tiny and crowded most of the time. Fresh local ingredients are used in everything. Breakfast burrito with sausage, sweet potato, corn, black beans and eggs was awesome. Stopped again for lunch next day and kale salad was great so was my veggie sandwich. Highly recommend this place. Probably best deil/bakery in town.

Service was lacking. Counter staff unfriendly. And there are signs everywhere to "bus your own table out of respect for the next customer." Off putting. We had the chicken salad wrap and a ham & cheese panini. Food tasted good but should be served with some kind of a side. A pickle. A couple chips. Something. C'mon - make it... More
