Has a nice looking atmosphere, service was friendly and very nice. Food is extremely expensive, was overcooked and of poor quality. I do not recommend if you are looking for great food. Side note: The women's restroom has two toilets and only one stall

Was looking for a quality meal but didn't want the raw fish so I order the Cornish Game hen. Half of a pigeon and a few vegies and I left hungry after spending 50 bucks

Another great meal in Salida. A perfect breakfast before hitting the road. The breakfast tacos with eggs and avocado were especially good.

Diversity of menu and friendly place. Good special lunch items, and dinner atmosphere is cozy. Wine and cocktails at the bar fun for a solo dinner.

Motorcycling through CO, staying in Salida. We look for good food everywhere we go. Shallots fit the bill for us. Small cafe owned by an energetic couple. Menu is diverse and they have marvelous evening specials. Highly recommended!

Great service. Fresh food. Creative combinations and classic fare. Hard to find quality like this in a small town but here it is.

We almost waited for a table at Fritz's and should have. Nothing was particularly good -- for instance, the lamb was fairly fatty, overcooked for medium rare, and pretty bland. A garden salad almost seemed like a cafeteria salad. The service was slow -- about...More
