So I came in on Saturday and it was wonderful.
We beat th crowd, but your system for keeping things coming and the line moving worked just fine.
The coffee was hands down the best in town...really really just right, flavorful without being acidic.
The food was fresh from the oven...the empanadas were wonderful, especially when topped with your salsa.
I will be back...maybe even tomorrow!
Thanks for your hard work...you deserve to succeed, and we all need to support you so we can have a fun and delicious first class place like this in town..
Good morning Kyndra, there is no minimum to use the Wi-Fi. The empanadas come out by 11 am everyday.
Great...I'll be in. I do like it there, and perhaps you have improved the coffee over the former guy. Good luck! We all want you to succeed!
I'm confused. Is Wi-Fi free or not? Can't wait to try the empanadas...and hoping for some Peruvian ceviche!
Hello TejonTech and thanks for your opinion, but I have to say that we are here for the customers, and the FREE Wi-Fi with a 5.00 purchase it's now free. We will strive everyday to fulfill our customer needs, and hopefully your next review will reflect our commitment with these wonderful community, thanks.

The funny thing about this place is that it is always different than it appears...it is run for the benefit and out of the fantasy of the owners, and not really for the customers, other than those who obediently fawn over what the owner has in mind.
It is cliquish and loaded with funny little rules...like FREE Wi-Fi (with a $5 purchase).
Somehow coffee has become a side product in a Latino cafe...it is not just right for anyone except perhaps Pagan.
This guy Bryce should open his own place...I bet it would be awesome
It's a bar with pub food. It can be decent, but there is very little consistency. Burned one day but not the next. Stick with the pizza or a sandwich and a beer. The staff usually seems to have a "don't care" attitude.
Somehow these brew pubs like Trinity and the The Republic are so cliquish that craft beer lovers who have to attend to job and family don't seem devoted enough to warrant attention from the in-crowd servers at these places on their occasional night out with the guys.
I wouldn't trust food connected to the Underground to be much more than you describe.
For me...the Ivywild School rehab offers a much nicer and cleaner setting with proven food and beer for a cheaper price, nicer treatment, and a certainty that you won;t get food poisoning.
I haven't had a single bad meal from there in my MANY visits. Oh noes, it's a chain! Sorry if that cramps your street cred. It certainly doesn't mean it's not worth eating because they have more than one location. Weak.
Pretty sketchy...sort of looks like they hired panhandlers who really don't know what they are doing so what you get in your bowl is a total crap shoot.
I've eaten there several times and the only thing I like there is the Colorado Cheese Steak sandwich that you can only get during the lunch service.
Definitely one of my all time favorite restaurants in the Springs and the list is short.
Other than the wait staff being at best mediocre...the atmosphere, food, and owners are terrific...Our family has eaten there from day one and have long ago lost track of the number of fun and satisfying evening we have spent at Paravicini's...I would imagine over 75.
It's a chain restaurant. Nuff said.
I love reading the independent each week, but wow, I really have to disagree with the review of Tokyo Joe's. Our family use to drive up to Denver weekly to enjoy this restaurant and now that we have it here in the Springs we and all our friends have been going there twice a week and the food has been amazing each time. The place is packed everytime, so it's not just us that feel this way. The staff is so friendly, plus it's a super healthy option that even my kids want to go to often. So Bryce, you really got this one wrong in my and many others opinion. Makes me wonder if they did not advertise with you all or something because your review was so far from what most people are saying about it. Maybe you should give it another try or something ? We love it.
"....and salty, limp fries...."
Egads. IMO that is NOT a "well worthwhile" place to visit.
If a place can't get fries right, avoid it .... fries are so basic, so universal, such a "food 101" kind of thing that no decent place should ever serve salty limp fries.
@MatthewSchniper, that'd be 2,872,800 potential choices.
I love going to Swirl. The atmosphere is great.
I keep going back...and I must say nothing in town holds a candle to it. Just by far the most distinctive, tasty, fresh, and well presented Mexican food in the whole region.
Comfortable, clean, well ordered...I am fussy, and I always leave Q's delighted. Prices are easily fair for the portions and quality.
We all need to chip in and keep them in business...this is not your typical serving line Mexican food with hot floured cheese whiz poured over it. Nothing canned, prepared earlier in the week, or assembly lined. Just fresh, delicious, and yummy!
