The growing number of great new businesses on Main Street over last few years here in Buena Vista has been very exciting see. Now the Buena Vista Roastery has added to the selection with a gorgeous new space featuring an impressive array of fresh baked goods made daily on-site in addition to their high-altitude coffees roasted on-site. BV Mayor Joel Benson and his wife Laurie Benson own the business; I caught up with Laurie on their opening morning.
“Ever since we bought the Roastery, we’ve had a dream of creating a really cool space for the community… This will give people a place to hang out, gather and have fun.”
Asked about the food on offer, Laurie listed bagels and an assortment of cream cheeses, empanadas, cookies, muffins, and seasonal pastries. They are also working on a beer and wine license and will begin to stay open until about 10pm around the holidays. Desserts and live music will also be on tap for the evenings.
They have only been open a couple weeks now, but the new Roastery space has already become a favorite local hang out. The freshly-made baked goods come highly recommended, as do their breakfast burritos and gluten-free breakfast tacos. And wash it all down this holiday season with an egg nog latte. See you there!
