Visiting Southern Colorado, especially if you’re new to the area, will provide you with a whirlwind of new experiences. From our inimitable scenery and nearly endless opportunities for exploring, there’s something special about visiting this area that has people coming back and reminiscing to family and friends about their Colorado vacation. Yet, it’s impossible to deny that after an adventure (or even relaxing while reading a book as you’re engulfed by the beauty of the towering mountains) that your stomach will begin to grumble. Sure, a snack might suffice during your hike, day of skiing, ATV trek, etc., but for most of us, an enjoyable, and if not the favorite part of being somewhere new, is finding local food that your taste buds haven’t tried out yet. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s… different, but when you find yourself looking for a place to eat in Salida, you’re guaranteed to find a meal that will satisfy your hunger while also providing an atmosphere that’s incomparable.

The Biker & The Baker

Located at 123 W. 1st Street in historic downtown Salida, The Biker & The Baker is a great option for couples looking for a place to unwind after a fun-filled day of exploring Southern Colorado. While there are a few options in town to find a nice glass of wine, you won’t find anything that compares to The Biker & The Baker. With an atmosphere that will have you staying for just one more glass, a vast selection of the finest wine and delicious charcuterie plates that are served on a chilled slab of granite, the place is classy without compromising its easygoing atmosphere. For more incentive to visit, they also serve some of the best desserts that you can find! We’ve heard that their pecan pie is to die for!

Mo Burrito

Owned by the same hard working folks of The Biker & The Baker, Mo Burrito can be found at 311 H Street and is a staple in Salida for locals and return visitors alike. Tucked inside of a building, if you’re craving a burrito this is where you go! From breakfast to dinner, Mo Burrito serves up their mouthwatering dishes and as an added bonus, they also have a full bar! Make sure you stop in during your trip, we promise you won’t regret it.
