Great atmosphere and even better coffee. Now if we can get another batch of two Africas from Switchback next door.
There's a bartender named Laken, she's pretty awesome and liberal w the drinks. But also a tease in a good way
Went to the new location on North Tejon for a Saturday evening dinner. The food was tasty and the servers were well-informed and attentive.
Lots of real flavors, interesting combinations, and suitable portion sizes for the price ($9-$23). Our group liberally shared a representative set of dishes, thus I was able to find several things that I would partake of on my next visit. I chose the pan seared duck, which was perfectly cooked and well paired with the sweet potato/parsnip puree. The desserts were also rich and delicious.
My only complaints concern breaking in the new location. The dim interior made the miniscule text on the 1-page menu VERY difficult to read, and you'll have to raise your voice to have a conversation in the somewhat noisy dining area. Nevertheless, this is a place worth re-visiting.
Cool little hangout! Great coffee and staff. Very friendly. Cool Friday running "club". Reduced priced coffee after a run...not too shabby!
This place is a joke.. The cooks do not know whar there doing.. the chef is a discusting.. i order two different times there.. first i ordered a club sandwich.. witch was very discusting the Turkey that was in the sandwich had a weird distinct color and a smell. And the veggies are discusting had to trow it away.. and second is there California Burger. The chicken was raw.. i will never again eat there or even suggest that place to any one..
If you get to Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs, and you find yourself in need of sustenance, you might try PB & Jellies in the food court. The ambience is... Well it's the mall. But the food is terrific. I had a Reuben sandwich and I've got to say, it was the best Reuben sandwich I've ever had.
I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.
The above reviews crack me up, some rang true BUT... It's NOW NEW OWNERS.
So give it another try and I promise you won't be disappointed.
Went for lunch today to try the new menu. It had a lot of interesting food that all sounded sooo good. I had The Bomb sandwich. That is a perfect name it was truly the bomb, it had egg salad and pastrami. My husband had the Peking chicken and asparagus fries which were amazing. My son had fish and chips and he liked those. OH yeah started with the Man Candy, you can't go wrong with spicy/sweet bacon.
These guys really would rather you go for breakfast to the place next door on Tejon street so they can sit our front and smoke.
The food is awful and certain things go off the menu, like hash browns, at lunch because it is too much trouble to cook on the grill with lots of pending orders.
Bought $40 in gift cards for them 2 years back when they had the powers location (which closed shortly after due to tax fraud). I went to the downtown location to use my gift cards and they tell me they are not the same restaurant. The back of the card clearly states the downtown address for use. Then they tell me it's because they devalued the cards due to not using them. I feel completely ripped off. Don't buy gift cards!!!
If you are in, then you are in...otherwise you are out, out of luck to get served
Boring and careless
I stopped into Maggie's while my dad was having eye surgery. I come from a family of waitresses and this place was very much like the place my grandma and mom worked at for years. Although it would be considered dated by today's standards the hostess and waitresses were very nice. The food was really good and was served quickly. The prices sre very reasonsble for the amount of food you get. I would recomment this place to anyone!
This is the real deal homemade kind of place...best pancakes in town. Deciding what you want is not easy because it is all fresh and tempting. Perfect place to relax and enjoy.
Tried to get a good lunch to go. Waited 30 minutes for a sandwich. Only one person actually working in the kitchen, 3 boys running around not sure what they actualy acomplished. One keept washing his hands in the floor cleaning pucket and then trying his hands of his pants to go on a costumer table. Hair flying all over the food and service. Finaly got my lunch to go. The salad was old and tasted nasty totaly expired already, so was the bred, to cover that up the bred over butterd and greacy, the, non of the ingridience where fresh or properly assembeld together, the whole sandwich I waited 30 minutes for tasted like soap since most of the items on the sandwich have long expired and should not be served to anyone anymore. Well that was my first and my last expierence there. Its so sad to see nobody takes home cooked meals serious and actually present what they promis.
I ate at Omelets Etc for the first time yesterday and it was exceptional. i love the family owned restaurant feel. The food and service were exceptional! My coffee would never get half empty before someone was filling it up. Great food too, the green chile was great. I think I found my new hometown cafe.
I absolutely LOVE this place. The owners are very open, loving and caring. We hold our meditations upstairs and we rent the place to have a Metaphysical Meet and Greet. I bring my 3 year old autistic nephew and they are very accommodating for him. A wonderful atmosphere, a peaceful outside table, and great food and drinks.
I go to Flatirons each Monday to play poker. I find the food here especially delicious and very well prepared. The Flatiron steak is tender and cooked to perfection. The potatoes are a rare delight and the mac and cheese is to die for! I appreciate Megan and the other fine servers that are considerate and remember the menu items you enjoy. A lovely evening for anyone looking for good food and fellowship.
