La Cocina de Luz

123 East Colorado Avenue, Telluride


See Website

La Cocina de Luz is easygoing and democratic, much like Telluride itself. After ordering at the counter, patrons avail themselves of the DIY salsa cart while waiting for authentic tamales, flautas and tostadas to appear. The colorful southwestern fare is prepared with regionally-sourced ingredients, and the restaurant is home to the only juice bar in town, making it possible to wash down one’s chilaquiles with a shot of wheatgrass. Ideal for a hearty breakfast or a low-key night, La Cocina is a crowd-pleaser and a Telluride institution.
