Have Lunch with us on the Patio!
We have launched our Patio lunch at The Sanctuary. This will feature salads, & toasty panini sandwiches - all of which go great with an iced coffee, glass of wine or whatever you love. These can be made to take out with you for later, or just enjoy them in the best patio in town! Main restaurant is closed for lunch service.

Who We Are
We started our business in 2022 with a particular goal in mind: providing a unique dining experience in Alamosa. Thanks to our experience and dedication, we’ve managed to bring something special to our hometown. Providing dishes that are fresh and hearty, we serve Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.

Beautiful Bourbons, Classy Cocktails & Excellent Espresso!
The Sanctuary is a classy & relaxed cocktail lounge as well as a great place to pop in for an espresso drink. Come in and enjoy a craft cocktail, excellent scotch or a delicious latte!
The Friar’s Fork was founded by husband and wife team, Denise Vigil & Nealson Vialpando. Denise has 30 years of experience in the hospitality/restaurant industry and paired with Nealson's ability to build about anything, this dream at last is a reality. The Friar's Fork & Sanctuary was created in the footprint of the former historic St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Alamosa and is the ideal buiding & location! The Friar's Fork serves Italian/Mediterranean Cuisine with the Sanctuary being an upscale cocktail lounge & coffee house. It's a place where people from all over the San Luis Valley can meet to enjoy our tasty dishes and comfortable atmosphere. The Friar's Fork mission is to be a blessing to it's employees and the guests we serve.
