Good coffee, breakfast, locals meeting and a stroll through town like all else. The lattes were superior and the baked goods tasty and the fella I was with had a full cooked breakfast and gobbled it.

Stopped for lunch at the Taos Cow and was very surprised to find a very good Gyro there. They also have make very good ice cream with unique flavors. Don't miss the approach that looks like it might be a secret garden, across the street.

Icy, not creamy. Had peach ice cream, had virtually no flavor, no peach or any other flavor. Was going to split it with my spouse, he wouldn't even eat it. Greatly over priced at $4.50 for tasteless ice cream. Also had to wait in very...More
