We planned to eat here on a Monday, the Facebook page listed it as open on Mondays, but found the restaurant closed. The tables and chairs were stacked and pushed to the sides and the room was quite dingy, giving the impression that the restaurant is closed.

I am so sorry that we missed you. We were closed on Monday in observance of New Years Day. We are open 7 days a week now, except for national holidays! The store front that you looked in, is located right next door to us. It is actually the same building. We hope you come back and see us!!! More

We stopped in Trinidad for lunch on our road trip back to Texas. We were sick of fast food, so we thought we would have a treat. My wife found this quaint little Cafe on the maps and we are so glad we did. We sneaked in just before closing, but this didn't faze them one bit. I had an... More

We had a great time checking out this place for lunch. The place was hopping. You stand in line at the cash register to order and then food is brought out to your table. Waiting in line was the longest part of the process. Our food came out quickly after placing our order. The only downfall we. saw was there... More

Stopped at The Cafe for breakfast before hitting the road after a quick overnight stop in Trinidad. The young lady who was working was very friendly and helpful. We had the egg puffs which were excellent, served with a fresh bed of mixed greens and a nice sauce. The coffee is self service and very good, the place is spotlessly... More

A tasty lunch enjoyed sitting outside in downtown Trinidad! My sandwich (open face Italian) was unique & fresh and the side salad was a good size portion. A long with a latte, my tummy was content! It is off I-25 but better than fast food junk!

Breakfast menu is not a traditional breakfast selection. Mostly wraps or quiche. But they food is very good and the place is very clean and open, and the staff are very friendly. Great downtown location.

We drove into this sweet town and could not wait to try out the sidewalk cafe - beautiful day with outdoor seating seemed perfect! Lovely wood floors and marble top tables and nice counter service in back. Specialty coffees and homemade soup. First note: lady at register seemed rushed and exasperated. Heard her tell a customer she was cleaning up... More

We stopped by for some lunch after wondering around the downtown museums and were pleased to have a lovely relaxing bite to eat. Sandwiches, muffin, smoothie and coffee were absolutely lovely, staff were friendly and the booths very comfortable. We thought it was so good we a going back for a takeout to sustain us on our trip south.

An old time dry goods store, re-imagined as a gourmet deli. Order at the counter. Table service is fast. Ask about what's new in Trinidad.
