Lunch is always good. Sandwiches interesting and tasty. Went for "Bird and Bubbles" for dinner. Champagne was good. HUUUUUGE half a chicken was served (I have a hard time believing it was organic given its size) and was raw. They took it away and totally...More

Thursday lunch. The best lunch we had in Telluride. My turkey sandwich had fresh-carved turkey with fig and arugula. Side chips were good too. My companion's salmon salad was super. A great chocolate chip cookie too.

Perfect spot for a delicious breakfast/lunch, coffee or quick cocktail (good rose specials in the summer). They have an assortment of fresh sandwiches and salads available at lunch (note, you can also a plate with 3 sides, which I highly recommend). Cute ambiance as well.

Came in on a slow evening during the Ride festival. I had been working the event and stopped in for a snack and drink. Like most mountain towns, there was not A/C in the building, so it was pretty quiet inside. I sat at the...More

If you can get past the attitude of the kids who work here, the breakfast is really good! We came here twice during our recent visit. The baked goods looked heavenly but we ended up getting the granola (yum!) and eggs. The coffee is tasty...More
