We ate here for 2 out of 3 days for breakfast while in Montrose. They have excellent coffee and unique bagel/breakfast sandwich offerings. Excellent atmosphere while local art on the walls.

Thank you for the positive review and for highlighting our subs! We are more well known for breakfast so I always love it when we get a shout-out for a lunch item. See you next time! Scott
