A hidden gem in Durango!

I love Turtle Lake - for their mission, for their founder (Katrina, what a sweetheart!), and for their food.

You can only get lunch there on Tuesdays and Fridays, so be sure to put it in your calendar. They are not open for breakfast or dinner - or on other days.

They serve the healthiest vegan food in the 4 Corners, focusing on locally grown and organic live foods. You will feel great when you leave! Light, energized, and satisfied.

Pros: exceptionally healthy food, prepared with love and awareness, you'll meet great people there!
Cons: very limited hours, some items have honey in them
