Description: The Absolute Bakery and Cafe, is located in downtown Mancos, Colorado, just two blocks south of the town's only traffic light. We bake and cook everything from scratch, using organic, local and fresh ingredients. It's all homemade: from the eggs and hashbrowns, to eclectic soups and salads with our own delicious dressings, pastas from different parts of Europe, and our own red and green chile sauces in a wide variety of Southwestern fare. If you're needing a quick pick-me-up, we have a full coffee and espresso bar featuring locally roasted, fair-trade, organic coffees. The ABC offers you a fine-dining experience without the glitter. Enter the one hundred year-old Bauer Bank Building and immediately you are tantalized by the aromas of fresh breads and pastries coming hot from the oven. Our friendly waitstaff greet you with smiles. The vintage decorative tin ceiling, a variety of tables and chairs, the local artwork adorning the walls, as well as a great selection of used books for your browsing pleasure add to the unique, eclectic and cozy atmosphere that is so inviting to both locals and visitors.

We went for breakfast and had eggs, sausage, bacon and pancakes. Our meals were very good and the pancakes that came with one meal were so big I had some of my husbands. The coffee was really good. We would go there again if ever in the area.

When you visit small towns you don't expect much but breakfast here blew us away.

The atmosphere was very casual and very comfortable. We were seated next to the bookcase of used books that can be purchased. Being a bookaholic, it was a prefect place for me. We just browsed the books while we waited for our food.

We both ordered "The Stack" which is two eggs atop hashbrowns, cheddar cheese, bacon, and green chile. All you heard from us was little yummy noises as we licked our plates clean. We sat back with full bellies and satisfied souls.

Of course we couldn't leave without a bake good for later. While I enjoyed the raspberry bar even after sitting in the hot car for 8 hours, it is still the breakfast that has captured my heart.
