Much better than it looks

It looks like a coffee cafe, and it does that too, but it's also got a full bar and great menu with impressive food. Friday and Saturday nights include fresh seafood options. Burgers, pastas, more. Recommended.

Town is undergoing a bunch of renovation, and getting around can be a little time consuming. Still, the owner/server/hostess greeting and hanging out make this such a nice place to relax. They have a decent bar, and good food. This is a solid choice for any time.

Tried the Reuben and really enjoyed it! Great atmosphere. Now that the road work is complete in front access is much easier and the new street look is enchanting for a small town

The baristas are so friendly and nice and will make any concoction desired. The food is really good, too. Whether it's just a snack or dessert to go with your coffee or lunch or... More

We had a wonderful breakfast on an overnight trip to Trinidad. The waiter made great recommendations and the kitchen staff personally came to the table to confirm the order and then to check on the food. The coffee was really good, so much that I ordered more to go upon leaving. There is major construction out front so the street... More

Off the path eatery in redeveloping downtown. It is a great place to stop for lunch. I had a pulled pork sandwich which met my expectations.

The wheezy burger with onion rings is very tasty! Although the two combined are a little pricey. We also love their coffe and pastry products. The service can be friendly, moody, or aloof.

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.
