Love this gem in Crested Butte. Everyone is friendly and the food is great. My usual are veggie Momo's. Feel like I'm back in Nepal. Had chai on ice. If you're in Crested Butte, visit the Sherpa Cafe. Affordable and great.

The café is a simple and intimate atmosphere. It is a small place, and at the time we visited it was not too crowded. We made small talk with other patrons sitting near by, as the seating is pretty close. The chai tea is perfection!...More

Simple nepalese recipes but not a cosy place to be for a long lunch. Not the best experience for a group.

Indian cuisine is a dining-out staple for my family, and this restaurant has emerged as a new favorite. The food was excellent. From the appetizers to the Indian and Napalese main courses, everything was flavorful, fresh, and perfectly seasoned. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere...More
