Stopped in for a quick bite. The dishes are thoughtfully and creatively crafted and plenty delectable. Beer is cold, locally brewed and luscious. Had a light snack before going up the Gondola to mountain village but walked by this place and just liked the name....More

We ate here yesterday and liked it so much we're going back again today! Excellent and unique offerings. Our mouths were drooling just seeing each new order being dropped off at people's tables! Spoiler alert, we shared the beef hash and two of us barely...More

Thursday lunch. The best lunch we had in Telluride. My turkey sandwich had fresh-carved turkey with fig and arugula. Side chips were good too. My companion's salmon salad was super. A great chocolate chip cookie too.
