I really liked this place, it feels like Telluride, trays of all manner of pastries, cakes, and other baked items scream out at you.

We had breakfast at this place after seeing pictures on a magazine, the biggest picture was a benedict eggs that looked terrific. Finally we went there and they had no egg benedict and nothing that looked that good. Only plain sandwich bacon/toast/fried eggs put together... It looks like they have a good lunch selection but we haven't tried it. For... More

Found this to be a perfect setting with outdoor tables facing a small park area, that allowed our dog to remain tied to the railing at our feet. There were lots of sandwiches to choose from, comprised of various flavorful ingredients to add a special touch to the meat. I would say my House Turkey sandwich could have been filled... More

We stopped by on a rainy day to grab lunch. There were seven of us in our group. One orders at the counter and then the food is brought out. As we got there, the menu had just changed from breakfast to lunch, so that may have impacted our wait. The food was excellent and all orders were correct; we... More

Amazing little bakery/cafe. Everything you would expect from this charming little town. The decor is modern yet rustic and ever inviting and their pastries are out of this world. My favorite are the carrot cupcakes. Aside from being delicious, they are generously sized which is a huge plus in my book. They also serve a great variety of breakfast, lunch... More

We ducked in here when a surprise rainstorm foiled our morning plans, but what a find! Fantastic food, reasonably priced (for Telluride ;-))

It's a little confusing when you first walk in. Get a table, then get in line to order. They bring your food to the table and for my money this is the best bargain in Telluride. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. I'd eat there often if I lived in Telluride.

Our fave place to eat at a family for breakfast and lunch. Can't go wrong with anything you choose! I think between the four of us we tried everything on the breakfast menu! Loved it.

Our meals were delicious but portions are on the small side. Presentation was a work of art. The bar drinks were well prepared.
