Had dinner here our first day in Telluride. First thing, the signs were confusing. A huge sign said order at the counter. After waiting for awhile, I finally asked a woman if they serve anything but soups (on the bulletin board menu) and salads (in the case by the register). She gave us a small clipboard with 5x7 papers attached... More

Upon entering it's just super confusing...where do you order? Where are the menus? What's in the case up at the front? Do you sit and wait and they bring it to you or do you go get it when they call your name? Nothing about it was inviting, so we sat for a moment, tried to figure it all out... More

Go!!!!!! It's worth it! Great food selection and fresh and local produce used. Very hot food and tasted incredible. Only problem we had was finding a parking spot on the street since they were so busy!

Had lunch at this cafe that was new to us. You order from the sandwich, soup, and salad menu. Fresh ingredients and organic. Excellent taste. The place is noisy, but clean and lively with great sandwich and salads.

Fresh, funky and fabulous. Their new dinner service was great! Interesting dishes, fresh fish, oysters at a reasonable price, which is rare for Telluride. We are absolutely going back!

You must stop in here for breakfast or brunch at least once while in Telluride. It moved this past year to get more room and this can be risky for a thriving café. But they are safe as nothing was lost in the move. Absolutely a treat not to be missed in Telluride for any coffee product, pastry, breakfast item...... More

The Butcher and the Baker makes delicious food and serves it in a casual atmosphere. You order at the counter (sandwiches, soups, salads, etc) and they bring it over to your table in the sunny, open space. They have inventive menus--different soups every day, for example--and the food is really excellent. It's a bit pricy for a casual meal, but... More

I stopped here for breakfast earlier this month while on a group ski trip to Telluride. While it is has a welcoming atmosphere, the counter ordering service was slow as the order taker/cashier seemed to be preoccupied with running a credit card through her Ipad system. Ultimately we were able to place our orders. Interestingly they provide a billiard ball... More

The staff here is rude and downright disrespectful. I went in to sit at a table for lunch and the waitress brought the clean silverware tray directly to our table and took a full 5 minutes to refill the cutlery into the on-table bins, right while we were eating. It ruined our lunch. She could have taken the bin away... More
