Nice place

Every town should have a non-corporate coffee place like this, except WAG goes one better and has a bar and good food. Friendly staff and local characters. We enjoyed it.

Only place in Trinidad during our three day stay where we did not feel welcome-felt just like Denver. Mexican hot chocolate with real cream-yikes it was good. Apple tart just ok.

No premade mixes ~ their drinks are from scratch. Their margaritas and moonshine martin is tasted great. Our group also really enjoyed the fried pickles and jalapeño poppers

Just a short hop from the Amtrak station. Wonderful ambiance, knowledgeable, friendly waitstaff, an oasis for a weary traveller. The fare is equally five star.

Best $1 dark roast cup of Joe in the West. Great Menu, food is always fresh, entrees attentively prepared, servings are generous. Waitstaff are attentive and accommodating. Prices are steep but the offerings are worth it. Mediterranean Omelet and Mozzerella/Basil Sandwich are awesome. Great wine & beer offerings.

We stopped by for a quick cup of coffee and ended up staying and enjoyed the ambiance. The coffee tasted very good. I had a mocha and it was made with high quality chocolate. Would return!

Small portions for the price, but the food was very tasty. Very good, attentive service from all. This was recommended by a local shop owner. I had a buffalo burger and it was excellent. Wife said her 1/2 sandwich and 1/2 soup lunch was good, just not very much food. I would eat here again. We ate here while walking... More

Stopped here on the way through back to Oklahoma. Cute, trendy little place. My husband enjoyed his veggie burger on a pretzel bun and I had a grilled veggie panini. We both had black and tan onion rings which were perfect, light & crispy batter. They also have a coffee bar and alcohol bar. They have desserts too which we... More
