One of our favorite restaurants in Telluride, go for the patio if weather is nice. Great food & service @ reasonable prices.

Stopped in for a quick bite before heading out of town to get coffe but after looking at a menu decided to stay for breakfast. They had fresh squeezed orange juice and very good espresso. The salsas were tasty without being red hot and it complimented my scrambled eggs, refritos and tortillas. Also had some of the house fried potatoes and they were nice and crispy which is always appreciated. Poached eggs on my companions plate were not cooked properly (too runny for a request of "medium" but that was the only negative

If you like "health food," this might be your place. If not, the food could be considered just OK to not so good. Although all the flies seemed to like it! And while some reviewed the prices as "reasonable," I can only assume they meant "reasonable for Telluride!" The prices are steep everywhere in Telluride these days. In full confession, our preference is to avoid Telluride completely anymore. We loved what it used to be but hate what it has become. We only visited this time to show friends the area - and the area is still beautiful, as long as you stay out of city limits! Of course, if you like places like Aspen and Crested Butte, you'll like Telluride!

This is one of our favorite places in town to eat. Being a vegetarian I love the bountiful choices. Hubby loves the enchiladas with red sauce. Look forward to eating here every year!

Visited with my sweetheart & loved the experience from start to finish. It's a different set up in that you order from the bar as you enter then help yourself to the chips & many varieties of homemade salsa & pico-de-gallo. As the food is prepared they bring it to your table & we were very pleased with the portions & the quality of the meals. The sauces, both red & green were unique & flavorful & just the right kind of spicy. It's a little noisy in the eating area but fits nicely with the atmosphere & decor. Nothing really fancy here but really great food & a fun time out!!
