After the Hike: Local Favorites

The Butcher & Baker Cafe their farm egg sandwich on a homemade english muffin is a must order while in telluride - #sofuckinggood
La Cocina De Luz fresh squeezed juice. so good!
Brown Dog Pizza The Mountaintop pizza BLEW MY MIND
High Pie Pizzeria & Taproom Great atmosphere.
The Brown Bag Had 3 different sandwiches (Caprese with chicken, meatball, and Italian) and they were ALL great! Some of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Fresh and homemade ingredients.
Baked In Telluride Excellent bakery! If you can't find something for your baked-goods craving here, you can't find it anywhere!
127 S Fir St., Telluride CO — (970) 728-4775
Taco del Gnar - Telluride Tacos are outstanding! My favorites were the pork belly, the fried avocado, and the fried shrimp. Tater tots with queso are also great. Highly recommend for a casual but super tasty meal in Telluride.
Oak Monster sized chicken fried steak is fabulous.
Cosmopolitan Restaurant Awesome sushi happy hour with super fresh fish. And $5 cosmos :) a lethal combination with the altitude.
siam Amazing pineapple curry that you'll still remember even though you got really high and passed out in their bathroom.
200 S. Davis, Telluride CO — (970) 728-6886
Golden Block Brewery Pizza
Thee Pitts Again One word: PulledPorkSandwich. :)
Giuseppe's 1/2 Black bean sauté with avocado was great not too heavy
