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

This is a good place to go if you want good food, fast service, and a reasonably priced meal. We have tried wraps, sandwiches, and salads. The food was very good and the deserts look good. Tables inside and outside.

We can always find something great to eat .. Homemade and yummy ... There are gluten free bread offerings for people who need but I would pass and stick to the salads and other goodies Always feels busy and the staff has great energy and a smile for everyone

Feels very much like a local's place - great food and some good beer choices to boot. Very fun and friendly environment - I hear their Sunday brunches are awesome - but we missed that. Next time
