We all take our coffee pretty seriously. Whether you’re fueling up for the slopes or simply warming your winter bones, there is an ever increasing variety of high quality coffee shops to get your caffeine fix in Telluride. Here are the best options to keep you buzzing…
A personal favorite – Ghost Town is more than just a coffee shop: part cafe, part grocery, part art space, part community hub. From coffee, to smoothies, toast and granola, almost everything on Ghost Town’s menu is made in-house, including the almond milk and cashew cream cheese. This locally owned & operated grocery store combines small town charm with an eccentric hipster vibe and is the mecca for local coffee enthusiasts. Located on the south side of Main St, between the Patagonia Store and Zia Sun Toy Store.
Between the Covers Bookstore and Espresso Bar
If you’re craving that warm fuzzy feeling that you get from curling up with a good book and a cozy coffee, then make your way to the espresso bar at the local book store. Tucked away at the back of Between the Covers, this is the perfect little hideaway to enjoy over 10,000 volumes of books, magazines, and maps with your latte.
Proving to be one of the most popular loitering spots in town, these cowboys and cowgirls serve up a mean coffee from local roasters, and all from a funky little trailer in downtown Telluride. Get your caffeine fix outdoors and soak up outstanding views of the Rocky Mountains. Hot tip – they also do some serious teas, smoothies and other goodies.
La Cocina De Luz
Not only does La Cucina serve up some extremely tasty Mexican and southwestern cuisine, they deliver a mean espresso. Order your coffee here and you have the perfect excuse to sample some of the best nachos in town while you’re at it.
