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, 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.
Great food and atmosphere. The meats are tender and true to expectations of Texas Smoked BBQ.
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.
Good place to shop for some home supplies when living in Falcon, CO.
Ate there again today. The place continues to improve; I give it 4 stars as I reserve 5 star status for places like the Broadmoor.
My wife's Fish and Chips were nothing short of awesome, the 3 large pieces were each a good 8-inches long and thick, the crust was crisp and not oily like so many places, and the french fries were addictive with their amazingly thin coating, staying crisp to the end.
My caesar salad had great grilled shrimp that were perfectly done.
The chocolate torte dessert is enough for several people and a must for chocolate fans.
Lastly, one way I judge eateries is by the quality of their restrooms, and CMB has about the nicest, cleanest restrooms I've ever seen.
You won't be disappointed here. Go.
Cheap booze, nice staff. Usually close to empty though. This is great for a friendly social time but not a good place to looking for a new spouse.
Tong-Tong is my go-to Korean restaurant in Colorado Springs. The service has always been outstanding, with attentive, friendly servers that go out of their way to make you feel at home. They have always been ready with a smile and a suggestion of what I should try next. The food is likewise outstanding, with the wide assortment of soups being particularly good.
Everything from standards like bulgogi (thin sliced marinated beef) and japchae (a sweet potato noodle dish) to more unusual dishes like sundubu-jjigae (a spicy soft tofu soup) are served sizzling in their dishes and incredibly good. Unless you ask for it spicy, the level of hotness is under control, so this non-Korean can enjoy it without sweating the whole time.
I would suggest trying it at lunchtime, as their lunch menu has most of the standards at substantially reduced prices (around $6.99 for most). Even at lunch, you receive a wide assortment of traditional side dishes with your entre. The staff will gladly refill any of them if you ask for more.
The only knock on this place (and the only reason I didn't give it five stars) is that it could use a good remodel. The carpeting is worn in many places, the booths and tables have seen better days, and the restrooms, though clean, need some maintenance work.
Still, that shouldn't deter you from trying this place. Before you know it, you'll be a regular like me.
I had an awesome experience here!!! If it weren't for the owner I never would have survived my first day stripping. She not only set me up with some great stuff but also gave me inc-readable advice that saved my life that day. TOTAL LIFE SAVER. I would recommend to every one. (Oh and she even let me use the bathroom!!!!) Maybe you were just rude? Eh its standard procedure to see anybody's ID when entering an adult store. (duh)
Front Range is sadly underrated for their wonderful marriage of very very good food and quality music. No words can describe their delectable meals. And whoever books their bands really know what they're doing because we've seen some great acts come through here, most of them traveling from afar. Not sure why they advertise it as "southern rock" because musicians have come from Philly, Boston, etc., and have a wise variety of soulful sounds. If you want excellent food from a restaurant that has great taste in music, this is the place to be.
As a former Palmer student and frequent down-towner, there is nothing bad about KC that isn't wrong with any other downtown breakfast place. My potatoes have never been burnt, and I have never heard the staff curse. I've been earing here for three years. It is a DINER, so the food is bound to be greasy, but nothing compared to a place like Taco Star, for instance. I've had everything on the menu. All the bad reviews must be from some really sophisticated eaters, because to a normal person who doesn't get fresh herbs for her food everynight, this place is good.
Pikes Peak Alt. Health and Wellness, It is what the Ideal Dispensary is. Plain and Simply the bud is Connoisseur Level! The Staff IS Polite, Friendly and Knowledgeable. They have the PASSION for QUALITY over quantity not that its lacking lol. The Focus and Attention to Detail that is Absolutely necessary to Provide the Level of Smoke that you get from "PPAHW". All of the buds I have tried sampled has something that is wonderful and tasty. P98 has beautiful deep hues of purple in its dense and heavily frosted buds. The Champanel Kush is a rarity to find it's looks are not Deceiving and the smoke is so smooth. The Alien Rock Candy has been my Favorite so far it has Everything I look for in a
'Lime Green Bud" that is also nicely frosted. The flavor it gives on intake is soothing and clean and the exhale is the same with a great lemon or lime taste but on a sweeter side. I reed about what they wrote on weed maps about the description they gave for the buds and was skeptical for sure, when I arrived and it was quiet, clean well put together. I got a few strains took them home and examined them one by one and each was flushed and cured well and showed care taken to Produce High Quality Smoke and Very Heavy Effectiveness.
My husband used to live on the east coast, this was the closest to NY pizza that he's seen in Colorado. The staff was great, pizza hot and tasty and the cannolis (especially the chocolate ones) are to die for!!!
A little worn from the years...but it has been exactly like it is for 30 years...the food has never varied and is classic American tempered Chinese...and very inexpensive. It is the perfect match of expectation and result.
This looks like an absolutely delicious dish of gelato, homemade too!
The bar is under new ownership and it's about to take The Springs by Storm with live entertainment and much more.
Lots of improvements both inside and out. The owners and staff work very hard to keep everyone coming back again and again. If you are looking for a place that has something for everyone's taste, you need to check them out!
My experience was exquisite and I hope to repeat it. I was there Nov. 20 and whomever was "in the kitchen" rocked! Scallops! omg...The ambience is rich and the bill proves it. <3 the place for a nice date
I would give 5 stars except for the service is not as reliable or respectful as it could be throughout the staff. Staff is older and assumes you know what you want and where to find it. They don't take kindly to having to walk around the store themselves. I hope I'm not being fair and this was just one person among them who displayed this lackadaisical attitude to a first time customer who plans to be a repeat one if it hounds you to death. lol STILL this is a phenomenal store as far as its content. Unique and well stocked.
