Spruce Tree is in an old, somewhat beat up old house. The furniture looks like it was bought from a warehouse for failed restaurant equipment. The espresso machine and everything else is noisy. But the food was good, though quite limited in variety. I had tea and no matter how good coffee or tea is, drinking out of a cardboard... More

The coffee was amazing and the food was great. We have a gluten free in our group and we are always a little shy when we travel, but this coffee shop made our day. The young counter help were more than great about my friends gluten free and dairy free diet and were ready with gluten free bread and lot... More

Quaint store. Great coffee without the gimmicks ( though they will make it like at that other store if you want). The ginger chai was delicious, fresh, and not too sweet.

Stopped for coffee and was surprised at wide variety of food on their menu. Ended up buying Italian Ice (blackberry and lavender), peanut butter frappe, coffee and sandwiches. Delicious and the staff were super friendly

I had the chance to speak with the owner and they have a real commitment to quality coffee and fair trade practices. The latte was awesome and their house coffee was very nice. The avocado honey smoothie was a refreshing surprise!

I remember this conversation. It is dear to my heart that we work with fair trade and organic producers on coffee and espresso. I also like the less acidic taste that goes along with organic coffee. Glad you found us and come back again. Thanks for the really nice review. More

We were traveling through Cortez and stopped for a coffee. We lucked out! The service was quick, friendly and engaging. The organic fair trade coffee was excellent. Glad we found the Spruce Tree.

It was our first time in Cortez and my boyfriend's friend recommended this coffee shop to us. Since I am a huge coffee drinker, my boyfriend really wanted to take me here.
