We've been coming to Arroyo once a year during our visits for several years now and when Sean first opened it, the wine choices were eclectic and spanned all price ranges. He made it into Telluride's living room/gathering place and it was a special place. This had to be a labor of love for him and it was a special... More

I got into Telluride from Cortez about 9:00AM on my motorcycle, too early this time of the year. I was stopping at the first coffee shop to warm up. Lucky for me I stumbled upon this place. Great coffee and baked goods.

Best coffee bar in town and well the only, and therefore the best, wine bar in town. Rick brews the best and most cared for coffee in the morning, bakes his own pasteries and breads and serves with a smile, oh and his dog is there to visit you also. The wine bar is owned by the Town of Telluride's... More

Great Friendly Service! Our Bartender was so knowledgeable on wines, she helped us navigate all the choices. And the (red) wines were just soooo goooood! Met some locals and had such wonderful conversations, too. Had such a great time! (I didn't get a chance to try it, but I've heard they have great coffee during the day.)

The best coffee in town and a quiet and relaxing environment. Shhh hate to tell too many or it may get crowded. Also love the evening wine bar, great for meeting friends before dinner. Again a relaxing atmosphere with top shelf wines. Also great venue for events and mixers.

Stumbled upon the Arroyo on our recent trip to Telluride and the experience could not have been better. Great wine, great atmosphere, and an even better staff. Sara and ? could not have been more accommodating and insightful. They genuinely made us feel like long lost friends. Keep it up. Already looking forward to visiting next year.

Sean Murphy runs Telluride's only real wine bar on Main Street. It is stocked with the best selection of wines by the glass. With a cordial living room atmosphere it should not missed!
