Just because this small mountain town has only one stoplight doesn’t mean it can’t serve up some delicious food. For tasty and fast Mexican food, there’s Teocalli Tamale right on the main drag, Elk Street. For hot and cold drinks and a place to browse some books, pop into Rumors Coffee and Tea House, adjoining the Townie Books store. For incredible farm-to-table-style dining, try the Sunflower Deli for dinner. Sweets abound at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and for unique frozen flavors, head to the Third Bowl Homemade Ice Cream shop. Even if you hit all of these spots, you’ve only just scratched the surface of what this town has to offer.
