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
Been there several times. Clientele a bit rough, lots of F bombs. Food was hit and miss. My egg/sausage sandwich was to die for the first time I went, then never came close in later visits. Burnt toast. How in the hell can a place that's been around this long burn the toast. Their other location in Gleneagles also burns the toast. An amateur operation.
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.
Great, affordable dishes with awesome service! Go now and eat outside before it gets too cold!
Food, service and atmosphere are all top notch. If you've heard of Shuga's you've heard of their coconut shrimp soup. Order it. The 'boards' are super fun -- a beautiful and delicious array of cheeses, meats, veggies, breads/crackers; fun to share. Dessert is also to die for. Bring your wallet but you'll leave happy.
Amazing food! Breakfast and lunch have a wide variety of entrees made with fresh and innovative ingredient combinations. The pistachio-crusted salmon with artichoke ragout and baby potatoes is fantastic and their fruity french toast is delicious. The quaint atmosphere and private booths make for a great lunch for girlfriends.
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....
luv this restaurant!
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.
This restaurtant has gone over the mountainside,(beyond going downhill). There are seven members of the waitstaff. Of those seven, there are only three worth keeping on staff. Of the remaining four "servers", one is quite rude with customers. The other three just don't care. The food is never consistant. One time one gets a hefty portion, the next time you get the "kiddie plate. (You still pay full price either way.). If there was a change in managment's attitude, perhaps there would be a more positive mood with the staff.
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.
The location is superb. . . right there on the course. When the weather is warm the outdoor covered patio is perfect for sitting back, sipping a cold one and enjoying the day. Menu is better than to be expected for a public course. But don't expect anything too far out. Standard fare of burgers and such.
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.
Visit Wines of Colorado (just barely up the pass!) in the spring/summer/early autumn for a true Colorado experience. Choose an outdoor table and enjoy nature's ambience with a big, fat, delicious (and lean!) buffalo burger — their stand out menu option — and red potatoes. A great place to go as a group and you'll almost feel like you're in the comfort of your own back yard (except someone else does all the cooking and cleaning up!)
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.
If the Mediterranean Diet is like eating at Med Cafe, I could follow it. I rarely order off the menu (although every time I have, I've been pleased) but opt for the "salad by the pound". A scoop of baba ghanouj, a scoop of Greek salad, some red pepper hummus, a spoonful of kalamata olives and a soft, warm pita... it can be a different meal each time. Their soups are good too and they have a soup and salad special that's the perfect size for lunch.
