Re: “Sahara CafĂ©

Love to visit the Sahara every single time I find myself in Manitou. The family is warm and welcoming and service is sweet and timely. The SAGE TEA is the best beverage I have ever imbibed and I highly recommend it on ice! YUM, want some now. The ice cream is also yummy and anything on the menu is FIRST CLASS!

Re: “Piramide Boutique

Love the hemp clothing, designed with comfort in mind, and perfect wear for the artist in you. Sometimes it's a bit more hectic than I like, maybe because it is tourist season then, but there is another store in Old Colorado City! That is an alternative to seasonal crowds. They have everything you could want at Pyramide! Hats, jewelry, bags, and scarves included.

Re: “Marika's Coffeehouse

Marika's coffee shop is truly the one place you must stop for coffee and a choice of many rich delectable goodies while you watch the people go by. If you aren't into the folks, you can spend a couple of hours just looking at all the art on display! It is fascinating. A great local hangout, you'll meet artists, writers, belly-dancers, no telling, but it is a fun and colorful place to hang.

Re: “CC's Packard Hall

A fine event scene on the reknowned Colorado College Campus. Historic architecture and wildly phenomenal acoustics make this one of the best kept secrets among COS most cultured population. Many offerings are free for the enjoyment of the community, and the community <3s this, turning out in good numbers for every event. <3 Packard Hall and Colorado College!

Re: “Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

A challenging place to commune with nature, both flora and fauna abound. The hills are a bit tough now that I have a severe enough ankle injury. Concern for my ability to navigate the mountainous scenery and habitats make me nervous about going so far this year, but I WILL GO! SOON! I hope to get a season ticket. I can't wait to see all the beautiful and well-cared for beasties! And some of them are wearing clothes!! ;-P Great place for people watching as well as animal peeping.

Re: “5th and Main Espresso Bar

Fast FUD! Cheap Coffee (Organo Gold). No Dessert! Focaccia on pannini tasted like cardboard. You do get a bag of chips and a pickle probably from Sam's Club or Cosco. Make sure you stop in the restroom first for paper towels...napkins are like tissue paper. Overpriced! Never Again!

Re: “Saigon Grill

One of my Favorite places!! They will treat you right and the food is always yummy! I miss them being on the westside, but will still make the short drive to support them. Love the noodle bowls! JoJo always knows what we want when we walk in, great service!

Re: “Nosh

Re: “Saigon Grill

The Saigon Grill is a wonderful small family Vietnamese restaurant on Circle, close to Platte. Every dish that we have tried (on multiple visits) has been excellent.

Appetizers and main course dishes are all freshly prepared with excellent service and very reasonable prices.

The Saigon Grill at 337 N. Circle Drive is a treasure among the many Asian restaurants in town!

Re: “The Healing Canna

This place truly is the premier mmc In Colorado springs. I have been to many others but this place has it all...super friendly helpful staff and incredible meds. No other center I have been to can touch this place in quality or professionalism. I will be going back for more:)

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Good place with usually good music. Open mic Thursdays pretty much sucks. Bartenders are friendly (Hi Jamie Hi Ashley) until 2 AM then you better go! Hey they wanna go home! The smoking area is freezing in the winter. Men's room is small and smells. Deck out back is okay. A better sound system would be nice.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Gringo...I guess it is personal...I am a better beer drinker than anything else I do...but I always feel dissed and abused and robbed at Trinity. Never felt so taken at any place i have bought a beer in Colorado Springs...so I do take it all as you perceive.

Also...every single brew pub in the Springs makes generally better beer...so why be abused and have your evening spoiled when you can drink better beer and your patronage be appreciated somewhere else.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

I have not been there in some time but when I was I really appreciated all the Belgian ales on tap. That is very hard to find. If you appreciate Belgian ales you can do worse.

Tejon- I usually like your reviews but it seems like it's personal with you. You have too many entries on here and it's watering down your comments. Just my thoughts.

Jason is kind of a hippy dude, I met him when he was the brewmaster at Bristol's. He certainly has talent.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Just mentioned this to a friend who immediately regaled me with tales of rude treatment and whacko bad beer...the verdict is in.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Just to make sure my review above registers...I am posting again.

Lots of people who were excited about this place when it opened no longer even consider going...I never hear someone say, Hey I was at Trinity last night. It is an closed crowd of which, unless you are a head case, you would problem not want o be a part.

Re: “The Omelette Parlor

It is as dirty and greasy a place as I have ever seen...and the food has been sitting out for hours before it is served, tough, cold, congealed...nasty

Re: “The Omelette Parlor

I won't go back until the place is cleaned. It is filthy with a layer of dust that's been accumulating for years. I wish the Health Dept would check it out.

Re: “A Cut Above - Fillmore

So what am I missing here? When I click on the link for your menu I get a list of hair cut prices.! So where can the MMJ menu be opened?
