About this Establishment

Absolute Bakery is well known by folks from around the region for its homemade bread, great soups, and its heavenly macaroons hand-dipped in dark chocolate. Stop by for breakfast or lunch any time, and during the summer months try the dinner menu and wine selections.

Artisans of Mancos is an artists cooperative with productions by local artists and craftsmen: furniture, jewelry, paintings, pottery, and a wide selection of works in glass.

Nathaniel's of Colorado is a custom western hat maker. Owned and operated by Native American Master Hatter Nate Funmaker, hats are still constructed on vintage equipment using centuries-old, hands-on craftsmanship techniques.
