This is the inexpensive, informal sibling of Pagosa’s premier Alley House Grille, right across the street. Same chef, Todd Stevens, best in town. At lunch, there’s a deli-type counter where you order. Choices include pizzas, salads, sandwiches, or one of the cold salad dishes from the counter. Those are sold by the pound – buy according to your appetite or try a little bit of several. The food is global, so it includes things like Asian Fire Rice, Greek Grilled Veggie & Rigatoni Pasta, Dried Fruit & Harissa Rice, and several others. You pay at the end of the counter.
After 5:00, you get a paper menu with gourmet sandwiches on one side and pizzas on the other. Sandwiches are mostly $8-$9. The pizzas are what I call California style, not traditional. If you prefer East Coast pizza, you may or may not like these. But there's a good selection of ingredients.
They have coffees, a bunch of teas, and a couple of locally-brewed Pagosa Springs beers on tap. The low-priced house wines by the glass were actually pretty decent. And they just opened the “Back Room Wine Bar” in the rear of the building where they’ll have about 50 wines by the glass. I haven’t been there yet.
The interior is unpretentious with a dozen booths & tables. You’re not paying for atmosphere. During warm-weather, you can also eat outside. Only open till 8:00 in the evening, but that's not uncommon in small towns like this. I could eat here every day, except that it’s closed on Sunday.
