Cool, hip coffee shop that's a wonderful alternative to you know who.
Coffee is great. My pecan pie was right out of the oven, warm, sweet and gooey.
Order at counter, take your selection to a table. Outside seating too. Not pricey.
Yard sale coffee cups and flatware, funky old metal lawn chairs from the 1940s, in a renovated gas station ... recycling and re-purposing at its best.
Girl at the counter was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Free Wi-Fi and parking.
In the Old North End Neighborhood (ONEN), in the BON Shopping Center, at corner of Jackson and Wahsatch, a few blocks from Penrose Hospital just off N. Nevada Ave.
Closes at 3PM most days. I'll be going back.
new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.
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.
A really neat place, worth the visit. Plenty of free street parking. Excellent food and coffee, low key, quiet, friendly. A hidden gem in the old north end.
Great cup of - Carmel Macchiato w/ extra foam was the best. I asked for Extra foam & I got what I wanted! Yum! (add to that the Cheese Danish .....)
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.
Better than ever now...and it has always been good!
Great sandwiches & coffee! ARTISTS' RECEPTION SUNDAY, DEC. 8 from 6:15-8:15 for DIANE & PHIL VALLEJO ARTWORKS
Great shop love the smoothies !
Quaint "old victorian" shop with great people and a great vibe. Used to be Firehouse BBQ, located in a renovated turn of the century fire station on Colorado Blvd. just off of 8th street. Conveniently located just outside of downtown Colorado Springs; 2 blocks or so from I-25 just west of 8th Street.
Feels a lot like a neighborhood hang-out. Great place to watch the game, read a book, have a conversation, or just take some down time.
Jeff and Caryn Andrews are the owners and are usually there meeting people and making them feel like family. I highly recommend this place as a "must visit" for locals and guests.
Wonderful atmosphere, quiet and a good place for a meeting or to study. Serving some of the best coffee in Colorado Springs, the staff is almost too friendly :)
What a much needed space for our city! Great home away from home cooked food with a friendly family feel...You will leave feeling fully fed from soles to soul! Cafe Con Leche is bold and sweet, perfectly balanced extremes of flavor, and the Arepas Con Pollo is so good you could eat them for dessert cold, breakfast hot, on the go, take it home...Just take it in slow, savoring each bite and each bit of love that it is seasoned with...
If you are in, then you are in...otherwise you are out, out of luck to get served
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.
The coffee itself is fine, but the owner, almost religiously expouses her alternative sexual lifestyle. I'm most bothered by the gay reading material strewn on the tables. Then she has "groups" come over and meet there. It's awkward to say in the least.
More than just rude, some of the barristas are downright hostile. They had this one girl who looked like she fell on her father's tackle box. She was always snippy. I stopped going there a long time ago. I prefer to go to Canyon Cafe on 8th and Cheyenne Blvd.
My family and I have really been treated rudely here. We have a disabled daughter who was mocked and made fun of by the barista. My daugther was really upset and started crying. I told the owner and she did nothing. I live next door to this place and I'm disappointed in their behavior. We won't go back again.
It would be awesome if they could hire an actual busperson who would actually clean the tables with disinfectant - I try not to think about when I eat there. Yuk.
WOW...stumbled on this place while at the Ladies US Open...smiles all around, great coffee, and a breakfast sandwich to die for. Just a couple blocks from the broadmoor. Check it out!
I've passed the location for years but stopped in last Saturday and we got some tea, a smoothie, and a hummus sandwich. Such a neat, funky little place inside with a cool simulated wood stove, nice couch, and several larger tables for parties of four. Next visit I'll have to get some coffee. Since this is right up the hill from me, I plan to stop by more often now. If you are going to Cheyenne Canyon, stop by. It's right down the street.
