Your review is honest but this is definitely a restaurant everyone in the area should try. The breakfast is great and affordable -- hands down the best value for your money in Woodland Park -- especially better than the over priced Hungry Bear.
I agree the place is a bit quirky but as a WP resident this is appreciated. Obviously this reviewer isn't a 'mountain' person.
I've only been eating at the Dutch Kitchen for about 40 years. I've never had a bad meal or a bad piece of pie. The food is always fresh and always just the way I like it. The pies are all made from scratch, and all good. The rhubarb raspberry rumble is one of my favorites, with just the right combination of sweet raspberry and tart rhubarb. I had the Dutch apple Thursday evening and it was great. I don't put whipped cream on my pies, though.

WTF? Their website is void of any info, other than name, address and email link. Menu?
I am loving the new Sahara in Manitou. The lamb was out of the world and really enjoyed the Sahara Salad when I was there. Also, the coffee is fantastic, done to perfection and is perfect after a wonderful dinner there. Very good customer service as well. I will be back!
Great Middle Eastern food for everyone and the best I've found in the area! The service was excellent service, the menu diverse and flavorful. I will definitely be visiting Sahara Cafe again!
Good article--I love frozen yogurt. Sound interesting--another yogurt place that is healthier than Pinkberry is U-Swirl. http://u-swirl.com/franchise.html It's popping up all over the place--and it's really good.
We've been won over by the great food and amazing staff at Sahara's. We've tried all the area Middle Eastern places, and lived in the Middle East ourselves, and Sahara's is the best -- both for the fresh salads (I love their fattoush) and meats and the welcoming staff. If you like Middle Eastern food you'll see what makes this place special. Great for carnivores and vegetarians. Yum!
and i will make sure my baklava is not dry ever again
thank you so much for the great article
we already started remodling the didning area hopefully it will look better the next few weeks
the old tables already gone since wedn. the 18th of May and the lighting will be changed the next few days
thanks for you support
personally as i have told many people many times.. would i eat CUY... YES!!! boshintang.. i would eat that as well. infact any thing that uses cuy in south america is often subsituted with feline protein. pezzetti di cavallo uses horse fat in italy, stracotto d'asino is a dish made with donkey yes italian as well. Would i eat these things YES.. are you a freak show peta person.. my god i think you are.. and if you are then well i hope you never need a animal transplant or medical bi product made from animals... like insulin or interferon. animals are FOOD.. (yes i have pets) why are you complaining that people eat animals? Dont you ever wonder if that lettuce silently screamed as it was ripped from the only home it has ever known and violently and ruthlessly handled and shredded/cut into that lovely salad you ate? maybe thats food for thought?... soylent green anyone?
AkamaiRabbit, food and a cuisine is a story about people. If you would take the time to learn about another culture, you would understand the importance of rabbit, dog, cat & how the entire cute & fluffy & delicious animal kingdom plays a roll in our own culture & history. As for this “local” menu, I wouldn’t worry about the loss of too many bunnies. Unfortunately, “chefs’ in this town believe in ripping off Thomas Keller & David Chang and serving us horrific interpretations of their foods. How about doing something original? Please; learn how to properly cook & please stop serving us rotten fish heads & terrines of moldy cat food.
Nothing against little kids and dogs, but not running around the crops that I'm going to eat. clearly there is no food safety program at Fruition Farms. This farm would instantly fail any third party audited food safety inspection. Chefs who use product from this farm had better make sure their liability insurance is paid up.
"Eating rabbit is offensive to millions of people who have rabbits as pets in the United States. They are the third most popular pet in the USA behind cats and dogs. Some estimates put them at 1.4 million upwards to 4 million pet rabbits. It is not an issue with the Bugs Bunny or Thumper, cartoon characters, as the rabbit meat producers and some chefs like to suggest. There is a growing number of people who know these animals as pets. Plus, the so called "meat" rabbits such as the New Zealand Whites, Californians and Harlequins, are routinely sold as pets and are affectionate house rabbits. People don't want to eat animals (designated as "meat rabbits" or not) that will nudge their hand for affection. There are places in this world, particularly in some areas of Asian countries where dogs and cats are consumed as food. We don't eat cats and dogs in this country because of cartoon images in the movies or on TV - some people understand rabbits for what they are to them - great pets. Rabbits purr (softly grinding their teeth when petted), can be littered box trained, clicker trained like dogs, enjoy affection, bond with their owners for life and other animals, and can be cage free in a bunny-proofed home. We don't poach Poodles or simmer Siamese cats so why should we braise a bunny or make one into meatloaf. As omnivores, we have choices and that choice can mean Not eating some animals like cats, dogs, horses or rabbits. Rabbits are butchered for meat at 7 weeks old before they are weaned at 8 weeks, they are not covered under the Federal Humane Slaughter Act and only 20 to 25% of the commercial rabbit meat producers are inspected according to industry statistics. There is nothing cartoonish about eating a baby rabbit - it is grotesque and repulsive to millions of people who know them as pets."
Hi Dave (nat),
To answer what I'm going to assume is a real question, I began with that phrase because regardless of how a restaurant institutes cost-cutting measures, there's a difference between the real thing and not, and one shouldn't be mistaken for — or graded like — the other.
Hope things continue to go as well as they have at the Gazette.
Congratulations on one of the most misleading intros of your career. Why start by saying imagine house-cured meat when there is no house-cured meat to be found? Your job is to inform, not confuse.
I didn't know the Broadway Deli was closed, but all I can say about that is good riddence. We used to go there regularly, but we noticed the food quality kept getting poorer. But the main reason we stopped going altogether is that they always had Fox News on every TV in the place. What a way to lose an appetite.
It would be nice if Joanie would open a second store there.
I agree that lunch is stellar there, the air is cleaner there, the view is incomparable there, and yes, the staff is second to none there. But the breakfast? Bryce, perhaps you should wake up your tastebuds before you critique the burrito, huevos rancheros, or breakfast sandwich. The burrito, which is large and overstuffed, and, with the pleasantly spicy green chiles, ranks as the best on the mountain. There simply is no other breakfast within 3 counties that compares. Joanie's Mountain Gourmet Deli is far above anything in area - in more ways than one!
Be nice if they'd open one in the space recently vacated by Broadway Deli on N. Academy.
Great natural light in a cool, airy open space and with Josh and Caitlin on hand in the morning, you've just gotta dance when they do. Love the pepper jack bagels and each cup of coffee is perfectly handmade when you order it. Come for the caffeine hit, stay for the wireless and the company.
