Cavallo's Restaurant is fast becoming a local hotspot in Ouray!

Our job just got a lot easier!

Sid and Kelly Cavallo have truly outdone themselves with their new restaurant which proudly bears their name. Offering breakfast and lunch with a distinct Cajun style, Cavallo's has already filled a niche in Ouray's dining world.

Cajun food has a reputation for being spicy, but not so, insists Chef Sid. The perfect Cajun dish is full of flavor, not spice, and he demonstrates this truth with dishes from traditionally recognized biscuits and gravy to a decadent twist on eggs Benedict.

Lunch is an adventure your taste buds will be ready to repeat with salads and shrimp po'boys just the tip of the iceberg.

A cup of chicory blend coffee freshly roasted by local coffee company Exotic Earth is a great compliment to any breakfast choice. Lunch can't get much better when paired with one of a rotating selection of micro brews provided by local breweries Mr. Grumpy Pants (Ourayle House), Ouray Brewery and Two Rascals.

Open seven days a week from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm, Cavallo's is a definite must during any visit to Ouray.

But Wait! There's More!

From movie night, to improvisational jazz guitar, with preset menu options that change every week, there is a whole new reason to visit Ouray this winter!

November 21, 2013, don't miss the Farm to Table Harvest Dinner! A collaboration of ideas between Kat Papenrock from the Ouray Chamber and Resort Association, Kris Dunham from Kristopher's Culinaire, and of course, Sid and Kelly Cavallo, the menu is sure to be a treat

What would Tuesday Night Dinner Cavallo's style be without  music? Ben Gaude is a Jazz and Blues guitarist from New Orleans who has traveled with several bands in Colorado and New Mexico, guaranteed to be the perfect compliment to a terrific meal!

Friday, November 8, 2013 is the first Friday Night Dinner & a Movie! Thats right, doors open at 6:00 pm, and once all the dinner orders are in, sit back and enjoy a new film every week as you enjoy an excellent meal, local beers and the company of friends old and new.
