21 Elk Ave. 970-349-5434 firstas­cent­cof­fee.com; moun­tain­oven.com Come for First As­cent’s pour-over cof­fee — house-roasted in small batches — but stay for Moun­tain Oven Bak­ery’s house-made chi­laquiles, a sump­tu­ous, gluten­free, south­west­ern egg dish fea­tur­ing mole, av­o­cado, cilantro and blue corn chips ($12). The cof­fee roaster and bak­ery share a beau­ti­ful space in­side a ren­o­vated miner’s cabin with plenty of seat­ing in­side and out. Teo­calli Ta­male 311 Elk Ave. 970-349-2005 teo­cal­li­ta­male.com The menu is sim­ple at this lo­cals’ spot: bur­ri­tos, tacos, tamales and fresh-made sal­sas. The bur­ri­tos are enor­mous and stuffed with your choice of beans, rice and fresh meats ($7.55-$10.75), and the house­made salsa packs enough spice to keep it in­ter­est­ing but not painful.
