Additional Details:
Is known from coast to coast for its fine food and service. This very unique cafe, all hand painted by a famous Colorado artist, is made from one of the first narrow gauge railroad coaches to come of the D&RGW RR. It was used in the 1880s by Otto Mears on this once famous railroad route from Silverton to Ironton, Colo. During the early days it was attacked by Indians and there were many arrowheads buried in the wood.
