The Rose Cafe/Bakery/Bar in Edwards, CO
The Rose was a pleasant surprise. It is in a new mall, but has a lot of quirky personality and great food. The bar is small, but has a huge number of bottles. They can probably make anything. The front counter has a variety of sweet treats, such as many flavors of macarons. We were there for lunch after a morning of zip lining. I didn't take many pictures, because I was so hungry and so tired. I started out with a fabulous citrus sage shrub. Shrubs are fruit drinks made with a little fruit vinegar to add some acidity. I had the "piggy smalls", which was tender pork belly, coconut rice, ponzu and plantain. It was very filling for a small plate. My friends had the "rose salad" with dates, avocado, goat cheese, almonds and more. They were very pleased. We decided to go to a bookstore up the street for coffee. Lunch gave us the strength to stroll along the river walk, behind the mall. It is a paved path along a fast river.
