A quiet, gentle place overlooking Colorado Ave. with plenty of corners to disappear into with a book or your thoughts. Unassuming atmosphere, good selection of coffees and teas made a cup at a time.
Good pizza, good calzones, both with great toppings options, but the sandwiches are GREAT. Especially the cold turkey sandwich. A fresh tasting sub with "better-than-your-average-sub" bread... crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. Simple. Casual atmosphere, friendly service, inexpensive and family friendly.
Amazing food, service can be slow on the weekends but it is worth the wait. The green chili kicks some heat too. I am not brave enough to handle the red chili yet. Biscuts and Gravey are devine. Love Western Omelet,
I liked it the ppl there are friendly and the fiid was good alittle bright with all the white but good
Love this place! really good reen chili. the staff is always on the spot. i have never waited more than ten minuets for my order. i look foward to going there everytime.
Found it by accident on a real estate buying trip, ended up living here. Having lived for over 50 years in CA and eaten 5-star Mexican food, I give Amandas a 4. Good, but not excellent. Was disappointed when we first went there that there was no carnitas! How can you have a Mexican restaurant without pork? However, the rest of the menu was decent, I'd say 3-stars.
Well, sometines good things happen. Amandas now has carnitas, and decent carnitas at that, my rating is now a 4. If they want a fifth star, they need to begin making their own chips, serve them warm and improve the dipping salsa. prices are reasonable, booze is tasty, good margaritas. Parking on weekends is horrible. Outdoor dining next to the creek a plus, if you can avoid the T-storms.
Love the atmosphere. Very Southern. Food is pretty good. Great drink specials and occasional live music. Shrimp poboys and oysters is what I recommend
Fantastic fondue! Prices are though high so bring your walet and your credit cards too. Private settings that are comfortable, just hope the waitstaff doesn't forget about you once they put you in your cubby.
Good food, rustic surroundings, decent prices.
Good hometown place to take the family for a relaxed breakfast lunch or early dinner.
Fantasic doughnuts and even better biscuts and gravy.
Huge tasty burgers at reasonable prices. You must try the green chili soup, it is great.
Great food, good service but they are very busy, especially in the summer so plan on a wait. Try the Horney Margarita and hope for a booth.
If you like pasta and fruit and yum in the tummy, you'll love Rasta Pasta. An overall wonderful dining experience in a laid back atmosphere. Something for everyone, meat and veggie alike. Go eat and enjoy the peaceful vibrations of the island. The citrus spice salad dressing is tangy goodness and the Chicken Montego Bay is one of the best dishes on the menu (especially one-up spicey). The Chocolate Jammin' combines jerk and dark chocolate to make a dreamy syrup over vanilla ice cream. For a morning treat, try a zesty Bloody Mary done irie style. Families and single are all fit in together. Bob Marley would be proud of this new Colorado Springs downtown eatery.
Saw a sign out front recently that they were celebrating their 1 year anniversary. Glad to see a restaurant stick around in this cute little spot. Attentive, knowledgeable service. Fantastic Vietnamese coffee. Flavorful, filling, and unique food options. Love the noodle bowls and the soups, especially this time of the year! Seriously, try them out in a group and you can all try each other's dishes.
Most of their food is pretty basic, sandwiches, bagels, pastry kind of stuff, but their Mate Latte (Yerba Mate green tea with steamed milk) is the absolute best I've found anywhere in town. The fact that they are right next to the Cheyenne Mtn. library, walking distance from my house and have a great patio, make them one of my favorite summer Saturday morning fixtures.
We decided to finally head across town and check out this award winner. The ambiance is nice and the staff very friendly. Starting out with a margarita is definitely the way to go! The chicken mole was very good and had layers of flavor but none were overpowering. The only problem were the sides, the beans and rice were somewhat bland and need to be perked up a bit. This was well worth the drive and we will be heading back to try the chili colorado.
OC Academy has been my home port for the entire decade. Food's good, beer's better, people are the best!
We love this place from the PO'Boys to the mother of all hamburgers. We just wish the plates came with more of those SUPER FRESH and GREAT SEASONED french fries.
