    Upon arrival, my wife asks the usual Celiac-friendly questions to determine if it is safe for her to eat here. The server seemed to understand gluten allergies and Celiac, and suggested their gluten free options were NOT SAFE from cross-contamination, as “we are a bakery”. Too bad, but we appreciate the honesty over getting sick and ruining our vacation! We asked if they had any area recommendations, and they responded with “maybe you should eat at home”. Thanks a lot, we never thought of that! Not an uncommon attitude in modern-day Telluride unfortunately – but that doesn’t make it acceptable.

    Great food. Great coffee. GF chocolate chip cookies. Blueberry pancakes. Several egg dishes. Friendly servers and they understood Celiac issues. Downside is it is packed. You have to wait in line, and you are supposed to bus your own table. Lots of gluten in the kitchen, but we had no issues.

    One of the best BLT I have ever had. The bread stayed together and had a great flavor. Even though the place is small and you have to bus your own table after, it is still a great place to go and get some lunch!!

    Not very friendly, waitress would rather stand around and talk politics then serve food. Our order was completely messed up and we ended up getting a refund on food ordered that never was served. I believe the hold up on the food was because of a gluten free bun that had to be thawed out when a gluten free wrap was ordered! Went up the street to the Brown Dog Pizza place that had friendly staff and good gf buns that didn't have to be thawed out!

    This was our favorite place for morning coffee. I had the GF Blueberry Pancakes for Sunday Brunch which were fluffy and tasty (and cooked on their own pan). They were served with whipped cream, so if that's not your thing, be sure to opt out. They also offer GF bread and wraps for sandwiches, though I didn't try them out myself. The restaurant is small, but we never had a problem finding seats for two even during the Jazz Festival.
