Motorcycling through CO, staying in Salida. We look for good food everywhere we go. Shallots fit the bill for us. Small cafe owned by an energetic couple. Menu is diverse and they have marvelous evening specials. Highly recommended!

Ambiance of a decent local bar that provides good, well sourced/cooked food. Excellent ingredients for both plates were marred by cold plate and at best, lukewarm food, Waitress was advised but didn't care or offer to re-heat or replace. A really good NY strip steak...More
