This was my favorite find over the Christmas holidays. Loved the Hot Cocoa with Rumpleminz. The sandwiches were execptionally good, and the desserts were home made in taste. This is a restaurant/deli/bar casual atmosphere, with high quality. Would definitely recommend.

Telluride is so tiny you can fit it in your pocket-- so I was happy to try The Butcher and the Baker twice while I was on vacation. Once for an afternoon snack and once for breakfast.

Ok so we are here 3 times in 2 days. Telluride has good food but this is better than most. Interesting. Real. Local with a chill, happy professional staff. Real breakfast, delicious lunch. Great dinners.

Chowda was served with some amazing cheese bread. Chowder had real whole clams in it - very nice buttery flavor. I loved the sleek look of this place with lots of chalk boards and white furniture. Highly recommended!

This is the place in town. The place locals go, for breakfast or lunch. Simple good food, served in a pleasant little spot on Telluride's famous Main Street, by a lovely group of people working together. It is not fancy. It is not loud. It is just good food well served and enjoyed.

My husband ordered the breakfast sandwich on a crossiant and he said it was good. Busy place. Friendly staff. Grab... More

Thought the two breakfeast outings were great. Was not that impressed with dinner. Love a good burger and thought it was average at best. Granted that was the only dinner item we both tried. Would go back for lunch and breakfeast. Dinner???

Yum! Big serves of delicious food. Lots to enjoy and great for sharing plates. They do a great breakfast too - healthy and quirky food options. The coffee is just ok - but we find most of the coffee here to be not as good - so that might just be our tastes.

We loved this place. There were a lot of locals dropping in for take out. I ordered the salmon salad and my husband ordered the BLT. The BLT was delicious. The bacon was crunchy and they added fresh pesto. Great combination. The salmon was on a bed of spinach. The dressing was excellent and the was salmon cooked to perfection.... More
