First I have to say this was a welcome open door during our visit to Salida where half the town seemed to be closed (April 2012). Then we were welcomed by friendliness, best coffee-drink prices I've seen in Colorado, especially for organic or free trade coffee and had the most delicious quiche for an afternoon snack ($4.ea). We loved that they offered organic and gluten free items and that their baked goods were homemade, so to speak. THIS WAS THE BEST GLUTEN FREE PIE CRUST we've ever had anywhere in the world, and we've been eating gluten free and cooking gluten free for 19 years!
A nice place to relax, meet someone for a light snack, coffee or wine, and feel most welcome.

$6.50 for a gross sandwich that may have originated at the Loaf and Jug convenience store. Oh my goodness did I ever get snookered!
