Apparently, this place is 'becoming' Mary's Gelato. All of the excellent reviews makes me wonder if we were there on an off day. The sandwiches were okay; I found the gelato unimpressive (I left most of my order in the cup). While at the cafe, we asked to use the restroom; it was signed as "employees only". The first member...

My fav place for Italian ice cream, and lunch is delicious too. The owner is a local that is addicted to food perfection and dishes that please the palate into complete feelings of love.

Good gelato now that the freezer's fixed. Lots of boutique flavors that change all the time. Plenty of seating.

Well, Dan is a big part of the ambiance here. Super friendly. You'll see. Sandwiches are great & big size. Salads too. Limited seating inside but more on patio. We get a sandwich to go & take it to the pond. Easy & quick ordering. Breakfast burritos fabulous.

We were here visiting Bandelier right before Thanksgiving, and were very happy Daniel's was open. We got sandwiches, which were delicious. I got the pastrami, which I definitely recommend. We also got gelato, a fantastic end to the meal. The service was fantastic-they suggested things to do and places to get great views. Really appreciated it!

Daniels enjoys its breakfast regulars, but turns away those not in the know: if you want one of their average wholesome breakfast sandwiches, then you have to call ahead. They'll turn you away if you just walk in. Their food is made to order, so-called breakfast burritos are the highlight, and they are a fried-egg and fixings of your choice... More

The ice cream was very good but the service was very slow. I would still go back there on a hot summer day :)

We came here for breakfast and even though has about three items for breakfast, one of them a breakfast burrito,.Even though this place is small, it puts out a great burrito. The sandwiches for lunch are many and varied so this is a great place for lunch. The fresh gelato and ice cream bar, however, is the hot tip! Made... More

Decided to try the place for dinner. There were several items on the menu that just sounded interesting but I wanted to try to ensure I would have a good meal. I ordered the Philly Cheesesteak. I found it to be quite tasty but I pulled some of the green peppers off the sandwich since I'm not that big a... More
