Every time we visit T Ride we enjoy the delights of La Cocina de Luz with family and friends. This visit I enjoyed the flavors of two vegan ice creams while others had their more typical organic options. The weather was perfect to be able to enjoy ice cream in their outdoor seating area. Then the next morning we ate a delicious breakfast to include a GF blue corn waffle. The chips and salsa bar is a real bonus although I suggest going light on them since the plates are truly filling. My husband started eating here when he was a local and I while living in Gallup many moons ago. We have seen places come and go and appreciate this reliable, friendly and affordable (for T Ride) establishment to visit upon each return.

Service was friendly enough and the food came out in about 10 mins.

Food was very good and good quality. A little pricey but probably typical for the area. There are self serve chips and salsa which were all very good. A few salsas to choose from. The red was my favorite.

Nice setting right on the main stretch. There is outdoor seating but I stayed inside.

Like it says. Our party of three got two acceptable but not memorable breakfasts, and one (waffle) that didn't work at all. Service was a bit slow but they were still getting the place turned on for the day. Good sit-down breakfasts in Telluride are curiously hard to find, but it's possible to do better than this. No opinion on lunch, etc.

Fresh, tasty fare. Highly recommend vegan sampler plate at $13. Salads are exquisite. local and often organic veggies. outdoor seating is good. Friendly staff. margaritas available. organic ice cream. reasonably priced considering it's telluride. Don't recommend the vegan tamales- bland.

Good Lord. So many problems here. Not even crowded here and they did not get the order right....not even close and totally uncaring it was wrong. If I wasn't hungry I would have got another but I soldiered on. Terrible terrible burrito. Staff disengaged and aloof. Never again for a $19 burrito!

We are making significant changes to our front of house staff to remedy the situation. I want to know what was wrong with the burrito though so I can talk with the kitchen. Thank you for your review.
