Thought the two breakfeast outings were great. Was not that impressed with dinner. Love a good burger and thought it was average at best. Granted that was the only dinner item we both tried. Would go back for lunch and breakfeast. Dinner???

Yum! Big serves of delicious food. Lots to enjoy and great for sharing plates. They do a great breakfast too - healthy and quirky food options. The coffee is just ok - but we find most of the coffee here to be not as good - so that might just be our tastes.

We loved this place. There were a lot of locals dropping in for take out. I ordered the salmon salad and my husband ordered the BLT. The BLT was delicious. The bacon was crunchy and they added fresh pesto. Great combination. The salmon was on a bed of spinach. The dressing was excellent and the was salmon cooked to perfection.... More

Amazingly delicious food and pastries. Bonus - they also have a bar with specialty cocktails. We came here twice on our trip. The chocolate chip cookies are so delicious I ended up up buying more to take home. I inhaled the salmon with veggie hash and avocado salsa...

We went in here for breakfast the first morning and had an amazing breakfast sandwich and breakfast burrito. The view from the windows show off the beauty of downtown Telluride with the mountains. I loved the atmosphere and food so much we decided to go the next day for breakfast. It was a bit busy (holiday season was upon us)... More

Great food and atmosphere. Perfect breakfast and tasty kale salad from the deli case. Also, some of the best coffee we had in town!
