If you are looking for your hot Java before 8am on Sunday the Coffee Cowboy has your back. Single or double shot lattes, drip coffee and some delicious baked goods. The Cranberry flaxseed cookie was my favorite! Friendly staff, too. If you're staying in town for a while, get a coffee punch card!

I'll have to try something else next time but the macchiato tasted too burnt (and burnt my tongue). They were fairly busy with a decent flow of customers, so I'm sure they have some other good coffee choices.

Sit outside in a pocket green off Colorado Ave, the main street of Telluride, as you people and dog watch! Also smoothies, biscotti, cookies, protein bars and sometimes gluten free baked goods. Non dairy milks available.

For a convenient and great cup of coffee or tea, Coffee Cowboy is the best. They offer all of the choices for anyone's special dietary needs. The vintage trailer and outdoor seating lends itself well to meeting and greeting others.

Can't go wrong with any of the drinks here, and I'm as picky as it gets. Food is another story - but it is a coffee cart, so I'm reviewing coffee, tea, etc. You really can't go wrong and the gals always do a great job - don't forget the tip jar! Best coffee in town.

This place makes great coffee drink. Try the lone ranger or annie oakley for something sweet. Cookies were good to.

Great on the go grab a latte and a gluten free vegan brownie! They even asked if I wanted a piece with edges or non edges! They also offer almond or coconut or skim milk options

Awesome lattes! Friendly employees! Tons of options for coffee and espresso drinks. Price is kind of high, but is what I would expect on a mountain! WILL defiantly be coming back.

I visited the Coffee Cowboy during the 2015 film festival. I usually order medium roast black coffee wherever I go and this visit was no exception. The ladies at the counter were very courteous with easy smiles, which was nice. My coffee, however, was not good... at all. I took two sips and just couldn't finish it. The flavor was... More
