High Alpine Coffee
Typically the quietest place to enjoy your morning coffee. Roxanne runs her High Alpine Coffee in the back of the bookstore on Main Street, Colorado, Ave. She gets her all natural coffee from Lone Cone Coffee of Montrose including a medium-dark blend drip coffee named after the Telluride ski run, Misty Maiden. Thorny Croft Kitchen supplies the tasty pastries and breakfast burritos with mostly local ingredients and sausage from her own pigs! Her wide variety of loose leaf tea from Mia Tea of Tuscon, Arizona and a very special Chai tea from Sherpa Chai of Boulder, CO is sure to brighten your day.
Another woman run business; Ghost Town is the epitome of Telluride style. Neat artwork, local ingredients, and mismatched plates, mugs, and furniture. They are a business focused on reducing waste and packaging and encourage you to bring your own mug. They are known for their Avocado Toast on Blue Grouse Bread (from Norwood Colorado). They use the local Steeping Leaf Tea and get their coffee from The Steaming Bean. But don’t be fooled, this is not just a morning stop, you can enjoy their freshly made juices, smoothies, or yummy salads for a light lunch too!
A food truck but not a food truck. This unique little cafe truck sits on Main Street, Colorado Ave and serves up a wide variety of quality drinks. Run by Josh and Monique, they have everything from tea and coffee to mochas and smoothies. Enjoy espresso, medium roast, and decaf beans from Desert Sun Coffee of the neighboring, Durango, CO. They get their dark roast beans from a truly fair trade and local business, the Telluride Coffee Roasters and tea from Might Leaf. Savor a slow sunny morning seated on their outdoor patio with a good book or a friend.
