The story of this restaurant and its owners is worth hearing about. We really enjoyed the deli, and authentic Italian sausages and other condiments and accoutrements they offered. It has a friendly family feel, and we felt right at home, and will definitely be back. Only open 4 days, owner works 16 hr. days then, so more than enough, we appreciate her and her hard work to keep up the family tradition, and provide a great dining choice.

Tutti Scoops Ice Cream Parlor has old fashion handmade ice cream in 16 flavors, shakes, malts, floats, and sundaes. Yogurt, anyone? We now have soft serve yogurt in two flavors. Come enjoy a cool treat in our cozy parlor. See our 1920 Art Deco tile back bar, or sit under the umbrellas in our very own courtyard. OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK: 12-6. March 1-3 we will be closed for for maintenance. We re-open March 4 with our March special, back by popular demand - The Paddy Day Sundae.
I stopped by during a walk through town for a treat. They have a very good selection of ice cream that you can get in a cone or a dish. The cones look hand dipped. I opted for a root beer float and was not...MoreThank you so much for stopping by and enjoying our patio, our treats and taking the time to give us a review. Francesca

We first began drinking cocoa at the Starbucks in Barnes and Noble, Anchorage. At that time Starbucks cocoa was made with much better ingredients (chocolate) and we would occasionally have it made with half and half. Indulgent but very good. Now, Starbucks cocoa is no better than Dutch Bros. Food items are also limited. What a shame... We have finally given up on their cocoa and no longer stop at Starbucks.

The Cafe in Trinidad offers a unique selection of sandwiches, salads, and soup as well as a daily variety of fresh baked goods served in a friendly, casual, bistro environment. Enjoy your meal street side while people watching or use our free Wi-Fi to catch up business. If you need a quick pick me up, swing by for an iced coffee or a latte blended with one of our gourmet syrups.
This was our second stop at The Café in Trinidad, midday on the second day of a long drive from Rapid City SD to Santa Fe NM. Pleased to find them open on New Years Eve Sunday. More pleased to enjoy a very yummy Colorado Ave Chicken Salad sandwich (with cranberries and pecans on a flaky croissant) as we headed out across Raton Pass. My double espresso was also excellent, though my wife’s hot chocolate was weak/watery. The happy solution was mixing the two to make a better than passable mocha. Reading their menu now, I’m betting that The Café does a great job with breakfast, too.

We found the restaurant on yelp and decided to give it a try after we had had a long day of driving/sightseeing and we were not dressed for anything that couldn't accept road weary types. (i.e. slightly sunburned, hair covered with a hat, etc). So for our dinner we ate at the Bella Luna Pizzeria. They have a fantastic wood fired pizza oven and their pizza is delicious - reminds us of the ones we got in Italy. They have a good wine selection and some microbrew beer selections were available. The owners, Sandy and Jeff, are very friendly and really welcoming. Their pride in their place shows in the restoration work they <br>did on this historic building. They have a unigue mix of pizzas that are their own creations but I have to say, judging by the pizza we had that included "pesto" as one of the toppings, we were happily surprised that the pesto did not overpower the other flavors. They also offer a daily special for dinner (when we were there). They also offer gelato which I believe is a secret too good not to be shared. We were content after splitting a 12" pizza and some mozzarella bread sticks and slept well that night. We'll be back.
The pizza options are amazing. Definitely a great option if you driving through town. Prices are a little higher than a chain restaurant but well worth it.
Always recommend a reservation if your trying to get dinner on a Friday or Saturday night!
Full bar, other food options, warm atmosphere & friendly service!

The Wonderful House is truly wonderful! They have a number of dishes that are triple threats -- beef + chicken + shrimp. Very good combos! The meats are so very tender.

Wonderful Italian food with a hint of southwest. Most of the waiters sing a solo with recorded music at various times during the evening and they are really really good!!
Every once in awhile in our travels we stumble upon a memorable place. Last night was one of those times. I heard about an Italian restaurant in Trinidad, Colorado called Rino's ( pronounced Reno's), that was famous for its "singing waiters". We could not resist the temptation and decided to go, not knowing what to expect. When we walked in the door the waiters were already singing and never stopped. Had a fantastic time with great music along with gourmet dinners that were out of this world. We could have licked our plates clean. Once seated, the owner (Frank Rino) came to our table and took an interest in us when he heard about our travels west in a motorhome and where we live both winter and summer. He even sang a few songs himself. It was a wonderful and memorable evening and one of the highlights of our trip. We will definately enjoy this experience again in our future travels. This is definately "a must" restaurant to visit if you are anywhere in the area.

WELCOME TO THE CORNER SHOP CAFE LUNCH 11am-5pm 7 DAYS A WEEK SELF SERVE SALAD BAR PANINI'S ...HOT OR COLD SANDWICHES ...HOME MADE SOUPS. THE CAFE'S IN-FAMOUS FRENCH DIP AND MANY OTHER FAVORITES TO TEMPT YOU. CHILDRENS MENU GLUTEN FREE PRODUCTS AND VEGETARIAN AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
Next visit we will eat lunch. Had to find a "public restroom" nearby with my 5-year old daughter. Too early for her lunch so we just needed "business" to take care of quickly. Thank You very much. Getting used to dirty looks when not buying anything, but "tourist" town plans need to include bathroom areas to go. Maybe a Trinidad listing of bathroom friendly small businesses because that is the reality with family life.
