The folks at Canyon Coffee make you feel right at home from them moment you walk in the door. The espresso is excellent and the cinnamon rolls are to die for. Amanda made me feel like I was a regular customer. I wish I could make Canyon Coffee my regular joint, but I will stop in every time I’m in CO Springs.
People forget how awesome it is to read books, espescially outside. I take my daughter here and by the time we get home she usually wants more books, stop reading so fast! The prices can't really be beat, and I like to sometimes go on my own little book treasure hunts. You never know what you'll find!
I always have a great time at Gasoline Alley. Its an awesome place to have a crazy and fun time. The location is perfect for downtown. There is always a good crowd and the rooftop is the best part about it.
A fun, mellow, locals-driven venue ... come early if you want to sit. Local brews and wine come out about even with this crowd. As an out-of-towner I felt very welcome -- music (Tenderfoot Bluegrass) was local and a fun band -- not as much old-time as I like, but still a nice night out --- town is cute but a bit of a sideshow. After two weeks on N. Academy Drive inally found a place where CO Springs "lets it's hair down".
This brand new venue has huge potential! We LOVED the food - it is exceptional....the bernaise sauce on the Steak Tapas was among the best I've had. The salmon is a generous portion perfectly cooked in a ponzo sauce over spinach. We also tried the special which was a perfectly cooked Halibut. It is sooo rare to find a restaurant that understands how to prepare fresh fish in Colorado. While this is clearly not "fast food", but rather "made to order real food", we find the service warm and friendly and the atmosphere and music make for a pleasant wait. The perfect dry martini didn't hurt either. The Creme de Brulee was also the best I've had.....rich and creamy, yet light with a hint of cardemom and ginger! They also cater to the "Gluten Free" diners.... We hope they are so busy that they will expand service to weekdays or lunch as well.
Great food, Great people, Live Music 3 nights a week along with Open Mic and Karaoke and Free Line Dance Lessons! All the fun of the big clubs in a neighborhood bar!
Bryan and Scott Jewelers is by far the best jewelry and fine antique store in Colorado Springs. No othere store in the city can compare. By going to Bryan and Scott, one can see items of exquisite beauty that can usually be found only in large cosmopolitan cities in this country and in Europe. It is truly a connoiseure's treasure.
A great place to listen to music and food is very good as well
A real road house and the entertainers seem to enjoy that
One of the best bands around! Jake has his own style, plays great music and puts on one hell of a show. Go Jake!
The service and the music is great. The pool table is a great addition along with the beer pong table. But check out the bartender/owner Mike. Talk about hot! Look out girls here he comes!
Great food! Great live music! And defintely the best staff in town. Fun and relaxing place to come hang out. The Cheers bar on the north end of town.
Nosh's lunch menu was updated since the last time I had visited and it took me twice as long to order as I wanted to try EVERYTHING. I settled on a cup of squash and apple soup (although their new option for a soup trio was tempting) and their Brussel Sprouts with polenta, candied lemon zest, manchego and a Korean sauce/condiment called Kochujang. I was not disappointed. The soup, especially, was divine... the brussel sprout dish a nice mix of sweet and savory and good textures. Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert so no report there.
On my 'to try next' list: the roasted cauliflower plate with garlic, miso and caramelized onion and the chicken pistou sandwich. GREAT service - especially if you get Aspen.
Great coffee! nice place to just chill and have a coffee or a tastey lunch. soups are good did i mention the coffee? I lived in the the NW and this place reminds me of places in Portland and Seattle.
Stopped in to Oscar's for a late lunch last week and a Black and Blue Burger with home fries. It was darn near a 10! One of my favorite places to stop when Im downtown.
@ Ishhod -- get the real story about the "physical altercation" before repeating your slander. Granted I'm a fan of Oscar's and I've gotten the full story from Phil (the "OWNER") and I've been at the bar when the "female" in question has called well intoxicated to scream at the employees. Get some facts behind that story. Oscar's rocks -- go for the killer burger!
Always good! We stop in every week.
One of the best bars to hang out in. Great staff.
The only place in town that I feel both socially and morally comfortable shopping.
Here is a savory taste of the open blues jam on 31 Jan 10....
What a night!
Met a new friend there and had a great time, great live bands, awesome DJ's, great service and great parking, a great place to dance!
