Quaint atmosphere good variety and fairly priced. I ordered the light lunch (cup of soup and half a sandwich of your choice) wife got a salad and a wrap. Both were exceptional. I feel sorry for those travelers who stop at one of the fast food places and spend the same amount for their meal. The Cafe is on Main... More

We stopped in this restaurant on our way to New Mexico.The old building is very quaint. You place your order at the counter and there is a big chalkboard menu. There were a couple of things I had a question about, and the owner/manager (not sure) was very rude. Rolled her eyes, didn't really want to explain how the lunch... More

We planned to eat here on a Monday, the Facebook page listed it as open on Mondays, but found the restaurant closed. The tables and chairs were stacked and pushed to the sides and the room was quite dingy, giving the impression that the restaurant is closed.

I am so sorry that we missed you. We were closed on Monday in observance of New Years Day. We are open 7 days a week now, except for national holidays! The store front that you looked in, is located right next door to us. It is actually the same building. We hope you come back and see us!!! More

We stopped in Trinidad for lunch on our road trip back to Texas. We were sick of fast food, so we thought we would have a treat. My wife found this quaint little Cafe on the maps and we are so glad we did. We sneaked in just before closing, but this didn't faze them one bit. I had an... More

We had a great time checking out this place for lunch. The place was hopping. You stand in line at the cash register to order and then food is brought out to your table. Waiting in line was the longest part of the process. Our food came out quickly after placing our order. The only downfall we. saw was there... More

Stopped at The Cafe for breakfast before hitting the road after a quick overnight stop in Trinidad. The young lady who was working was very friendly and helpful. We had the egg puffs which were excellent, served with a fresh bed of mixed greens and a nice sauce. The coffee is self service and very good, the place is spotlessly... More

A tasty lunch enjoyed sitting outside in downtown Trinidad! My sandwich (open face Italian) was unique & fresh and the side salad was a good size portion. A long with a latte, my tummy was content! It is off I-25 but better than fast food junk!
