The Colorado Cupboard is one of the few independent businesses left in Longmont and a great place to get gifts with the holidays coming up. It's my first stop for treats for people homesick for Colorado, as their pantry section stocks lots of goodies. You can go all out and build a gift basket or just pick up some bits and pieces for a care package. They are now the tourist info stop and have the milk from the Longmont Dairy, as well as ready-to-go meals and frozen entrees from Cooking With Jazz, a local caterer. The cafe closed but they still have a coffee bar with coffee from the Unseen Bean--it's a good place to sit and read a book. Note that they aren't open on Sundays.
My experience has been that the customer service has been consistently good and the staff are helpful but don't hover--maybe Fireal caught them on an off day.
