Coming from the Seattle area, coffee has become weaker and less flavorful the more East I go. But Spruce Tree has that funky NW atmosphere, friendly staff AND yummy dark coffee!!

We stopped in early on Sunday morning. Bo was working by himself. He made the best Mocha I've ever had, followed by a really good breakfast of eggs and corn tortilla's. My husband had a breakfast sandwich which he said was also very good. We're looking forward to our drive through Cortez on our way home so we can enjoy... More

We nearly had a vacation disaster...with a purse left behind with cash, credit card, keys, etc... and not realizing it until far down the road...a call to the shop, and Deidre said that it had been found and she would overnight it to us! That's great service!!! And the coffee, pastries, and morning porch sitting were fantastic too!

We were recommended the Spruce Tree if we were passing through Cortez. As it happened we were passing through there about the time we felt in need of a coffee break. The Spruce Tree is a quirky little place although actually bigger than it first looks. There are several other rooms tucked away from the main room/counter which are not... More

I tried a chai latte, and it was also good. This time we had their cinnamon rolls, which were quite good. My husband previously tried an egg sandwich,... More

Stayed overnight and found this little gem for coffee and breakfast. The coffee and tea was excellent, breakfast...ok. A little slim on the portions and some items not so "fresh". Would go again if passing through Cortez.
