Don't know the story, but this place was slow. Did you just reopen or something, and hire people who didn't know what they were doing. Drove through Trinidad on Memorial Day, not like they were busy. Very slow. Not very much on the menu.More

We were in town for just a weekend but ate here twice. We had sandwiches and salads and paninis - all fresh and delicious. I drive between Albuquerque and Denver often and plan to stop here for lunch as often as possible.
