We stopped here for lunch and because we were 16 we preordered sandwiches and salad. I had turkey which was perfect with Mediterranean dressing - it was perfect and I had French press coffee. Everything was wonderful!

After a long day visiting Mesa Verde, four of us had dinner there. It is a comfortable, casual, locavore restaurant with an interesting and diverse menu. We had an enjoyable meal with excellent service.

Farm to Table, organically sourced food prepared lovingly. Great casual atmosphere with farm tables and mis-matched chairs. Very large portions, I still have leftovers from their small Farm Salad. Good stuff!

Compared to all lunch places, this is average--it is above average for Cortez. We would use it again, and that is the our standard of approval. The signage for the restaurant is very small--you will not be able to see it from the street. It...More

Don't know the exact number, but many. You might want to check out their website menu. My wife did all of the legwork. The restaurant is known for its natural food selections.
