Re: “The Upper Room Coffee

Quaint "old victorian" shop with great people and a great vibe. Used to be Firehouse BBQ, located in a renovated turn of the century fire station on Colorado Blvd. just off of 8th street. Conveniently located just outside of downtown Colorado Springs; 2 blocks or so from I-25 just west of 8th Street.

Feels a lot like a neighborhood hang-out. Great place to watch the game, read a book, have a conversation, or just take some down time.

Jeff and Caryn Andrews are the owners and are usually there meeting people and making them feel like family. I highly recommend this place as a "must visit" for locals and guests.

Re: “Christal's - Austin Bluffs

I had an awesome experience here!!! If it weren't for the owner I never would have survived my first day stripping. She not only set me up with some great stuff but also gave me inc-readable advice that saved my life that day. TOTAL LIFE SAVER. I would recommend to every one. (Oh and she even let me use the bathroom!!!!) Maybe you were just rude? Eh its standard procedure to see anybody's ID when entering an adult store. (duh)

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Front Range is sadly underrated for their wonderful marriage of very very good food and quality music. No words can describe their delectable meals. And whoever books their bands really know what they're doing because we've seen some great acts come through here, most of them traveling from afar. Not sure why they advertise it as "southern rock" because musicians have come from Philly, Boston, etc., and have a wise variety of soulful sounds. If you want excellent food from a restaurant that has great taste in music, this is the place to be.

Re: “Bambino's Italian Eatery and Sports Bar

Never will go back to Bambinos since the owners did not renew the lease on La Creperie, one of downtowns oldest remaining quality eateries. Will not patronize their hamburger joint effort, The Skirted Hiefer. Nothing like adding one more burger joint to an already saturated burger market in this town, but hey, good luck on your half thought out business plan. The pizzas and "Italian" food at Bambinos were always mediocre at best, much, much better choices in the town. Arrivederci!

Re: “Eagle's Nest Wellness Center

Sadly I can't fully agree with the previous reviews. The edibles are delicious but the prices for medicine are too high. 35$ and eighth out the door isn't very attracting. They need different shelves with different prices. No new patient specials and no members benefits worth signing a caregiver over. The joints are mediocre and not worth the money. I'd much rather drive down to the springs where I actually have a selection of something that works in my price range. They NEVER update their menus so I never get to see any strains they have or prices. I don't feel happy or comfortable going in there not knowing what I want and my total being way more then I expected... Free popcorn and drinks doesn't pull me in considering I come for the meds. Put out a 25$ shelf for those strapped on cash and I MIGHT consider coming back and writing a better review.

Re: “Carey-On Saloon

The Carey On is my favorite country bar! They have a great dance floor, fantastic music, and the staff is friendly and fun. I often go by myself, and I always feel safe and have a great time. I love seeing the owner LeShawn and DJ Johnny Law wandering through the crowd making everyone feel welcome. I love this place!

Re: “JP Wellness - S. Academy

you got to try jp wellness best prices and bud.
JP Wellness

This spot is truly the best and so close to my beloved home of colorado springs. This spot has amazing OGs and awsome other strains. But bottom line the staff know everything about there strains and the prices are affordable. I recommend this shop to all my fellow cs smokers. Coming straight out of the City of Colorado springs

Re: “The Herb Shoppe

Great place! Been going here for a while. Very clean, and the staff is really nice. Big selection of edibles, actually thinking about making them my caregiver to get the 10% off. They have a few other good benefits too like a free massage once a month or something and deals on herb. Non member prices are pretty cheap anyway, on weekends they do $40 quarters for all stains but a couple. The quality is awesome too. They have a bunch of good strains, I like the Kong kush the most it just reeks like real kush should and is super potent. They got a bunch of good tasting sativas too. Carnival, golden goat and juicy fruit are a few of the ones I like. I also tried some hash oil they had that tested at 70% THC!! So good! Definetly the best place on the west side

Re: “The Canna Center

Horrible service and poor quality Meds. I thought this place would be great from all the super reviews. Highly disappointed, the Meds were anything but quality. The people were stuck up and rude. If you have high expectations do not go here! You will only be wasting your time and money. They are way over priced for the dirt they try to sell. :(

Re: “Trinity Brewing

Beer is good but service usually really sucks. I avoid the overpriced food and the owner. I do like the diverse guest tap offerings but they too are overpriced. Have a couple cold Flos and go down the road to more friendly people.
