Bakery
“A more local choice for a larger, (predominantly) natural foods store - expanded meat and deli selection, and overall a pretty good store (without the crazy parking lot of some others around town!)”

Coffee Shop

“When I came to Durango more than five years ago, I sold the coffee roasting business I started in Denver way back in 2006. 81301 is my coffee shop of choice - they have the best roasting in town (by far,) great pour-over coffee and espresso drinks, and a super friendly staff. It is a bit out of the way, being on the north end of town, but I guarantee it will be the best coffee you can get here in Southwestern Colorado.”
