I've stopped by here 5 times, and only once been served. Usually there are people in back, talking and laughing, but nobody at the counter! Even when I've called out, nobody came up to take my order. The one time they did, I got sandwiches...More

Had good coffee, but the pastries were burnt on the back, had them check the others and they were all burnt. Went back the next day, and the pastries were burnt again.

I travel to Durango monthly and I ALWAYS get a chai before going over the pass. This is the BEST I have ever had. You would not regret going there plus they have fabulous pastries and food.

We had lunch here. Small, but excellent selection of sandwiches. We each had the half sub with turkey, cranberry, and Swiss cheese.
