Restaurant Review: Baked in Telluride

Baked in Telluride has been around for nearly 40 years. The real reason that I come back time after time is the quality and food selection. The doughnut case is absolutely stunning, and there is a great selection of artisan breads and bagels. For breakfast, I opt for their flavorful and cheesy breakfast burritos and flaky, buttery scones. Pizza is hot and ready by the slice, and I recently noticed that they serve all sorts of salads, too.  They serve set-meal style dinners for $9.99 and offer different weekday specials like calzones and spaghetti and meatballs. Additionally, they are a top notch bakery with cakes, crisps, twists, cookies, and all the other concoctions that no other bakery in Telluride offers.

I ordered a feta and spinach stuffed crescent, a slice of veggie pizza, and a coffee refill. I am partially convinced that the crescent was magical. I could probably write an essay about it. I encourage you to try for yourself—you will not be disappointed. You can’t get baked oven style pizza as good as this anywhere else in Telluride. My coffee was hot and flavorful, the way I like it.

You can tell the owner puts his heart and soul into this place. From the bakery, to the pizza, to the sandwiches and even $9.99 dinner specials, you can’t beat the quality. For owner, the greatest satisfaction is knowing the bakery is a part of Telluride’s everyday life. “My business model is to see my customers, locals and tourists, at least once a day.”

If you find yourself hungry in Telluride, Baked In Telluride is a perfect solution morning through nightfall. They’re open 5:30 am to 10:00 pm, and they deliver around town, or cater up to 100 people.

You can visit their website at, or just stop in on your way through town. Next time you’re in Telluride, treat yourself to the best bakery around—I’ll see you there!
