We had planned to have breakfast in Palisade at the Packing Shed but upon arrival learned that it was closed permanently. We found The Slice of Life on West Third and they had delicious quiche and sweet rolls. The prices are very reasonable and the staff was friendly. I think it will have to be a "must do" on future trips to Palisade. I regret that I didn't think to take a photo there.
After our light breakfast we browsed through the Blue Pig Gallery where the art is always highest quality and from a variety of venues. We couldn't decide on just one piece to buy so didn't buy any.
Through the gallery back door and down the hall is another small bakery and a point of interest is the old elevator shaft shown here. You can even sit in it to much on your bakery goodies. Will have to try that in a future visit to Palisade.
Lastly we discovered Lisa's Scrapbook Boutique, a new business as of February. We didn't even know it was there. We found some small stamp sets and multiple colors of washi tape to buy and had a nice chat with the owner who has lots of plans for future events. We hope she does well! And I failed to get a photo there, too.
So that's a quick summary of the spring-time visit to Palisade. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
