Great diner. Type of place where you read the newspaper, eat a hearty portion of good ole American food and have the waittress call you "hon" while she refills your coffee several times over....
I have loved Adam's since it was in the tiny little spot Mona Lisa now inhabits. I spent many Saturday mornings in front of a turkey burrito and sherry potatos at the community table making small talk with other locals in my teenage years. As they have grown in size, with their two later incarnations, they have continued to provide excellent service, superb, fresh and healthy food, without relinquishing that big table and the homey community feeling.
To me, Adam's is a place to go to eat and celebrate friends. Whether it's breakfast or lunch, I love sitting there with an endless cup of coffee, truly unique food options and gossiping with a good girlfriend (or 4!) A fun place to stop after an early morning hike in Manitou or to take a long lunch and share dessert! A small town, eclectic Colorado feel and flavors that delight. Nothing on the menu has disappointed but it's often hard to stray from my first favorites to even get to try anything else!
The best coffee and espresso drinks in Colorado Springs.
Mmm. Just thinking about Med Café makes me crave their food. I love the spanikopita--order it with the salad and dolma. You get to pick your salad from the salad bar. Or check their hand-written list for each day's specials.
I can't get enough of Adam's Mountain Café. Sunday brunch means a tough decision between Orange Almond French Toast and Whole Grain Pancakes. At lunch I often pick the Rural Italian Lasagna. And for dinner? I try not to fill up on the Crostini with Figs and Pears app before selecting another veggie-heavy dish. Yum. Oh, and don't forget to order the Seattle Orange Spice House Tea--hot or cold, it completes the meal.
I was honestly surprised by how good their sandwiches were. It is a bit complicated-seeming at first, having to find a specific bag (out of about 10) to write down exactly which things you want on your sandwich. Nonetheless, surprised by the quality and the wait times are reasonable.
Was lovely food; prepared nearly as desired. Husband had the K' quiche that was slightly under-cooked, that will be requested to be more done in the future. Wife had omelette with cream cheese as one of the two included ingredients, so as to get the fried potatoes, to near the requested crispiness. Shared a side order of bacon. We both brought books to read, as we always do, and were well rewarded after the wait. We left properly satisfied. Went 3/8/15, while they were short staffed.
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.
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.
Great, unique food with many vegetarian/vegan options. Live music is pretty good. The patio in the summer is the best.
Fabulous food and drinks - great service. Live music would be nice.
comfort food in the form of sandwiches!
The perfect dive! Great food and fabulous service. The owner is a little nuts but is rarely there.
I was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy (celiac disease) and it's been kind of a nightmare trying to find a restaurant with appetizing gluten-free fare. Following my first meal at Coquette Creperie, I realized that this gluten allergy business wasn't going to be so bad after all. The food is absolutely delicious and the variety of tastes from crepe to crepe never allow boredom to enter into the equation. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable and the staff have always been friendly and extremely attentive.
i was afraid to try a "gluten free" crepe but my partner is very intolerant of the gooey stuff so I gave in...glad I did. kinda magical filling in my bada bing (spicy italian sauce and great sausages) and we even had to try a dessert with fruit filling..a few cocktails later we realized we just didn't want to leave the cool comfort zone. ..who needs gluten anyway
The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.
Corner Cafe is nothing short of delicious. The soups, the sandwiches (hot AND cold!) and the salads are all to die for. But the best part? The absolute REASON for going? The french fries. I'd venture to say they may be the best in town. And if you need the perfect sidekick to the fries, go for the bacon cheeseburger. It melts in your mouth.
Also, the service is impeccable and if not for the somewhat steep prices on some items (expect to pay $11+ for a sandwich, fries, and a drink) I'd rate Corner Cafe 5 Stars.
Great casual environment with not-too-expensive food. Love the spinach-feta quesadillas and the turkey avocado sandwich. And the YUMMY carrot cake.
