The Village Buttery - Ruidoso, NM

If you are EVER in or near Ruidoso, New Mexico, you won't want to miss this great place!  The name gives away the yumminess, doesn't it?  Well, if you're a butter fan,  it does.  By the way, did you know that Ruidoso really is a village?  That's what the locals say!

This buttermilk pie is delicious!
The chocolate mousse was good, too.  It was too dark-chocolatey for me and my family, but I know some people that would be glad to have that type of dessert.
Here's a close-up!
The owner, Elliott Taylor, makes all of the bread except for the whole wheat variety. His croissants were so good!
Everything was good!
What was neat about the place was that the young guy that owned it seemed to really enjoy doing what he does. He caters, bakes, serves, greets, and gets to know his customers - even if they are only visiting. He was dressed in "Rickie Fowler" golf attire - just like a couple of our boys were! They had a 1:00 p.m. tee time, and Elliott and his waiter/friend had one scheduled for 3:00 p.m., so they saw them on the course.  Too bad they got rained out :(.

What I noticed about being in Ruidoso was that it was much like West Texas and SW Oklahoma - warm, friendly people who were excited to tell you about their town, but also interested in finding out about their visitors.  

If you do happen to go that way, bring me back a piece of that buttermilk pie, okay?  I'll reimburse you! :)
