So, I'm trying to cut carbs and I don't often order potatoes, but the hash browns here have been seasoned with salt and pepper before cooking. They taste fabulous and are crusty on both sides. You can imagine. This is where all of us from...More

Lovely little place with excellent breakfast. I had the eggs benedict with avocado and tomato (sans meat) and it was awesome. Really nice laid back feel. Lots of artwork and photos on the walls add to the interest. Good coffee.

The local crowds tell it all. Go before 8 am on weekends to not wait for a table. Great menu selection and food. Good service. Obviously the best in the area for breakfast. Highly reommended.

While I had a really fine quiche, my dining partner's food was pretty average. Alas, the service, while cheerful, was erratic and distracted. Good cp of coffee, though. Get there early (before 8) for the cinnamon rolls, which have a grand reputation.

The Absolute Bakery and Cafe, is located in downtown Mancos, Colorado, just two blocks south of the town's only traffic light. We bake and cook everything from scratch, using organic, local and fresh ingredients. It's all homemade: from the eggs and hashbrowns, to eclectic soups and salads with our own delicious dressings, pastas from different parts of Europe, and our own red and green chile sauces in a wide variety of Southwestern fare. If you're needing a quick pick-me-up, we have a full coffee and espresso bar featuring locally roasted, fair-trade, organic coffees. The ABC offers you a fine-dining experience without the glitter. Enter the one hundred year-old Bauer Bank Building and immediately you are tantalized by the aromas of fresh breads and pastries coming hot from the oven. Our friendly waitstaff greet you with smiles. The vintage decorative tin ceiling, a variety of tables and chairs, the local artwork adorning the walls, as well as a great selection of used books for your browsing pleasure add to the unique, eclectic and cozy atmosphere that is so inviting to both locals and visitors.
