Ancient Way Café
"We reserve the right to serve everyone"
Here at the Ancient Way Cafe we strive to bring you a healthier, more natural way to dine. We choose organic foods whenever possible and none of our offerings contain MSG. The beef is hormone free and is personally selected from Colorado Custom Beef in Ft. Collins, Colorado. Our eggs are from free-range, happy chickens from right here at the café. We are open everyday from 9 am to 5 pm, (closed on Wednesdays) and you can order from a wide selection of breakfast and lunch possibilities. Our Friday and Saturday night gourmet meals are listed below and are served from 5 to 8 pm. It is best to make a reservation! Check out our excellent bakery offerings too!
Come cozy up to our pot bellied stove, sip a good cup of coffee and have a delightful butterscotch, pecan, almond toffee scone this morning. A great way to start a beautiful fall day in the Zuni Mountains.

“The most bestest sweetest place to get fed, loved up and sheltered. Always a happy time.”
“Lovely establishment in a remote spot. I love the El Morro for breakfast. Dinners on Fridays and Saturdays are by reservation, and a harpist entertains. This is a special place with awesome folks running it. I feel at home when I am there.”
“Fantastic food, great staff and a cozy cabin for the night! The view from the bluff is amazing.”
