Absolute is a wonderful, casual and unique cafe. Unusual dishes all made with fresh ingredients. Nice breakfast, lunch and snacks. The granola cereal is my wife's favorite. The grilled roast beef sandwich is fantastic. Absolute perfectly fits the small town of Mancos

Do not pass by this coffeehouse! Great Sumatra coffee and the best pastries. Our favorite pastry is the lemon blueberry bar. I love the atmosphere too.

Good fresh food--eggs, toast, hash browns,etc on a standard breakfast. I fell in love with the Greek Strudel. Get a cookie or bar to go. We were never around for lunch, but I'm sure just as good. Closed Mondays.

It is crowded, popular & the wait staff expects you to get up from the very crowded table area & go to serve your own coffee at the crowded counter where people are getting to go stuff from the bakery. You get a coffee mug...More

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.
