Taos Pizza Out Back regulars were looking forward to the aptly named Taos Cafe Up Front, located across the street from the pizzeria, which opened last Friday (November 18). The new coffee and breakfast place has been in development for almost three years.
Patrons will be greeted by the smell of freshly baked bread and Buffalo Bart, a bison head looming over the cafe’s warm hearth. Classic rock plays at a low volume, making it a place where patrons can talk, read, or write. Like Pizza Out Back, each table is stocked with crayons and a sheet of drawing paper, an invitation for local artists or kids to draw. When the weather is nice, guests can enjoy the patio, which has swings under the shade of tall elms.
