Since I loved my fry bread sandwich from Ted's Taco - Mancos so much, I took the Enchanted Mesa Motel owners' advice again and stopped off at Absolute Bakery & Cafe before we left Colorado.
They're batting two for two because this was the cutest cafe with so many baked goods that I wanted to try. They recommended the chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons.
And how could I not love a cafe that features shelves of books?
So many things I wanted.
Lemon lavender cookies! I looove lavender. Unfortunately, I was never able to eat my lemon lavender cookie. :( I wrapped my cookie up in a napkin to save for later. When we stopped for gas, Gourmet Pigs' friend thought it was trash and threw it away. :( *Sniffle.*
Gourmet Pigs got a cherry strudel, $2.75.
And the chocolate-dipped macaroon, $2.25. I had a bite and it was amazing. So moist. I regretted not getting my own. It was huge!
But I was already getting the blueberry muffin, $2. Which was also huge! Not too sweet and chock-full of blueberries. Sooo good! They definitely don't skimp on serving sizes here.
The aforementioned lemon lavender cookie. :(
And a large lavender lemonade, $2.75.
It's funny because in looking back at the food photos, I didn't eat as much on this trip as I thought I did, but I definitely wasn't ever hungry.
Alright, time to make our way back to SoCal. Can you believe, all these posts, and it's only been a few days?
