The Absolute Bakery and Cafe, is located in downtown Mancos, Colorado, just two blocks south of the town's only traffic light. We bake and cook everything from scratch, using organic, local and fresh ingredients. It's all homemade: from the eggs and hashbrowns, to eclectic soups and salads with our own delicious dressings, pastas from different parts of Europe, and our own red and green Chile sauces in a wide variety of Southwestern fare. If you're needing a quick pick-me-up, we have a full coffee and espresso bar featuring locally roasted, fair-trade, organic coffees. The ABC offers you a fine-dining experience without the glitter. Enter the one hundred year-old Bauer Bank Building and immediately you are tantalized by the aromas of fresh breads and pastries coming hot from the oven. Our friendly waitstaff greet you with smiles. The vintage decorative tin ceiling, a variety of tables and chairs, the local artwork adorning the walls, as well as a great selection of used books for your browsing pleasure add to the unique, eclectic and cozy atmosphere that is so inviting to both locals and visitors.
It is crowded, popular & the wait staff expects you to get up from the very crowded table area & go to serve your own coffee at the crowded counter where people are getting to go stuff from the bakery. You get a coffee mug from your waitress!! She does not even bring your first cup!! Very uncomfortable close tables with no room & ya need room cuz ya gotta get coffee & the wait for food is rather long! My husband hit his elbow trying to get coffee (due to location of coffee dispensers!), spilled the coffee & had to get another cup & had to shuffle through the crowd at the two registers (which are located there with the bakery display & self serve coffee). Food is good, but one needs to expects to wait for food. "Only show in town" that I know of! for breakfast Do not want to go again...ever! Once was enough for me!!

Popped in for a coffee, ended up staying for best part of an hour & came away with loads of very useful travelling advice & suggestions. Many thanks for that Zuma. We got the impression that this was a normal turn of events for this place.
The coffee part is different to the area serving food. There was an option of gluten free cinnamon bun or cookie too .
The health food section was very comprehensive . I was impressed with the herb & spice section which contained items I had never heard of.
Recommended for a pit stop - just by the main road .

this unbelievable fine restaurant (Both food and decor) is tucked into tiny Mancos, Colorado, midway between Cortez and Durango. It is a great spot to have a gourmet meal while visiting Mesa Verda National Park. (But not really suitable for young families with kids unless you've exposed them to fine dining!) It was a quiet night for the four of us with other tables unoccupied, but just a real lull for the establishment which has developed quite a reputation since it was first opened five years ago.

Quaint little coffee house with excellent coffee . The food offerings are limited but very tasty and seem locally prepared. Nothing off the Sysco truck here. Problem, no ADA access to the dining portion of the facility. This meant that only outside seating was available. Contrary to the regulations since the 80s, I suppose people like me will just have to sit outside in the cold, eh ?

We stopped for lunch. Enjoyed the outside seating on a beautiful day. We had the hamburger and the Turkey avacodo sandwich. Both were delicious, ample quantities, very low prices.

I ordered the parrillada. It had chicken steak shrimp cheese onions green peppers cilantro rice beans sour cream and guacamole. It was very very good it was Heaven in my mouth I will totally order that dish again. The only downside is they didn't have lighting I told him to turn on the light he says they were out they just had these little lights on but that's okay

We were lured in by the unique decor- giant arrows and teepees- and stopped for ice cream after visiting Mesa Verde National Park. The man and woman working were SO friendly- I didn't get their names but wish I had. They even made sure we knew about a cowboy hat we could borrow to take advantage of a great photo op. The ice cream is locally made, and all 4 flavors we tried were to die for. I was torn between Honey Blue Corn Bread- so good- and Strawberry Rhubarb- also amazing. If you are nearby, this is totally worth a stop!

Actually my "beer geek" friends tell me that this place is really a nano brewery because of their production capability. I say micro or nano, who cares as this is a great little brewery restaurant and that's what matters. The menu is brief but succeeds in offering a variety of offerings that cover the food world very well. My Cuban sandwich by example, was among the best I've ever had. It's pretty obvious that the owners are dedicated the best quality available, be it beer or sustenance. It's a very small space with only about 20 seats. No worries though as you'll be rubbing shoulders with some "interesting" locals who love this spectacular little corner of Colorado.

At first glance, it looks like a hole in the wall but the hamburgers excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. My grandson LOVES the place and they remember his name and how he likes his burger. I appreciate that kind of helpfulness.

Fried bread was light and crisp served with honey, cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. Excellent! All types of breakfast burritos with optional (mandatory in our book) green chili. All was fantastic. Alton Brown was here at some point, pictures of him and the cook are on the walls. Atmosphere is run down cafe but who cares? Its the food that i am here for.
