Re: True Grit Cafe
This answer is several years too late for you, JanetLC, but maybe it will help somebody else. Yes, the views of the mountains from Ridgway are spectacular - one of the most scenic spots in the state. (It was barely more than a road junction and gas station 35 years ago - it now boasts many luxury homes.)
RMNP is also spectacular, but no more so than the San Juans, which is the range you see from Ridgway. So, unless you love to put extra miles on the car, or have other reasons to drive up north, you can avoid many of the tourists by staying put in the southern part of the state.
