New staff and new management have made some great improvements! I tried this restuarant again recently... and it was okay in the past.... but it is great now! The daily and weekly specials are great and the staff was super friendly and attentive. Thanks, Oakleys!
I have eatin at this place and with the horrible service and food not up to even bar standards, they need help. They had a chef and new manager in the summer that had great ideas and service track to improve it, but the owner let them go and fast. Hired some guy that was let go too. How about we let the owner go and save this place!!! HIRE BACK THE HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM FROM SUMMER. How bad great place to be.
The coffee itself is fine, but the owner, almost religiously expouses her alternative sexual lifestyle. I'm most bothered by the gay reading material strewn on the tables. Then she has "groups" come over and meet there. It's awkward to say in the least.
I just had lunch at the restaurant. It was quiet when I walked in, butfilled up soon thereafter. The soup was as good as ever; the wheat roll was heated, but was definitely fresh. The coffee was not as good as it has been. Some investigation indicates that it is the same owner, but with loss of identification as a "La Baguette" in Colorado Springs, there is a more than subtle loss of some of the ambiance that had made it a "fun" place to go.
More than just rude, some of the barristas are downright hostile. They had this one girl who looked like she fell on her father's tackle box. She was always snippy. I stopped going there a long time ago. I prefer to go to Canyon Cafe on 8th and Cheyenne Blvd.
My family and I have really been treated rudely here. We have a disabled daughter who was mocked and made fun of by the barista. My daugther was really upset and started crying. I told the owner and she did nothing. I live next door to this place and I'm disappointed in their behavior. We won't go back again.
It was a chilly, rainy night and we poppen into the La Tartine expecting the same wonderful food and service that we had at the La Baguette. The restaurant was lonely with only another couple that looked like they had been waiting for some time to be served. I ordered the quiche, but didn't have a choice of what kind because they were out of the other ingredents. My husband ordered the beef bourguignon and we both ordered the French onion soup, which was billed as "the best in town." While we waited longer than we thought was needed because the restaurant was not busy, the other couple finally got their dishes after about 15 minutes. Ours came about 10 minutes later with service that was clumsey, soup spilled all over the plate. The quiche was the smallest portion I've ever seen and my husbands bourguignon was disgraceful with scimpy portions of beef. We paid much to much for the experience and will never go back or will recommend it to anyone.
It would be awesome if they could hire an actual busperson who would actually clean the tables with disinfectant - I try not to think about when I eat there. Yuk.
My husband and I just had dinner at the Creekview Grill tonight. They food was very good, but the service was lousy! Unless you are there to belly up to the bar and flirt with the bartenders and waitresses, you will get overlooked. Sorry to say, but we will not be back for quite some time. Maybe someone reading this will realize there needs to be better management of the restaurant.
BEST carrot cake and French Dip we've ever had. Tons of mix/match menu options.
Thank you for all your wonderful support throughout our 60 year history. I just ran across these comments while inputting our new summer entertainment schedule on our creekside patio area. I am sorry to hear that someone had a bad experience with waitstaff....puzzles me a bit, since our servers are mostly natives of the area and normally have quite happy dispositions. I suspect there may be some personal issue with former waitstaff that no longer work with us. Anyhow, we aim to please in every way, and I will be passing this info along to my floor manager to insure that everyone is treated with respect and kindness. Thanks again to all of you wonderful people who make us possible! The Owner
The 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? The breakfast ranks as the best on the mountain. The breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, or breakfast sandwiches are expertly handcrafted by a staff with a culinary obsession. An obsession that drives the owners and staff to adhere to a strict regimen of quality without losing that small-town feeling that greets you with a genuine smile when you walk through the door. And the quality doesn't stop at 11am with breakfast. Lunch will tantalize your taste buds with sandwiches that are "built" and "crafted" with Boar's Head meats and cheeses and other fresh ingredients and breads, soups and salads that would make a French chef envious. Then there's the fresh baked cakes, pies and pastries - Oh well, there goes your resolve. Joanie's Mountain Gourmet Deli is far above anything in area - in more ways than one! Its the best experience you'll have at more than a mile and a half above sea level!
I've passed the location for years but stopped in last Saturday and we got some tea, a smoothie, and a hummus sandwich. Such a neat, funky little place inside with a cool simulated wood stove, nice couch, and several larger tables for parties of four. Next visit I'll have to get some coffee. Since this is right up the hill from me, I plan to stop by more often now. If you are going to Cheyenne Canyon, stop by. It's right down the street.
Nice sports bar, food is good and the staff is friendly
Wow. Fantastic, friendly service. Great quality meats. My fave sub shop! A lot of sandwich for the price. The type of subs you get in New England are so hard to find anywhere else. I am so happy to have found this place! Highly recommend!
Horrible service if you are non white! Stopped after church while visiting friends in Colorado Springs. Had to open other section to seat our group of 5. Other groups arrived after us, but our group order was the last taken. When our waitress went by, she never stopped to see if beverages needed refill. Food was delivered to all tables around us. When waitress asked another table if they were "fine and in need of anything", I spoke up and said" No things are not fine, we need our food" The reply was "well when it's cooked, I'll get it". Needless to say, we left. No service-no pay-no tips. Don't go there if you are non-white!
"Was" a great place, about 20 years ago. I live and work close here, A value menu beats this.
This is a great little mother/daughter coffee shop. Besides great coffee drinks, they have a wonderful little menu of homebaked goods, soups and sandwiches. This place is especially appreciated after a canyon hike or bike ride.
This place was awful!!! The food was bland, flavorless and may have been out of date. Half the menu was whited out and they had a sign up that said they were unable to get good produce. Yuck! save yourself the trip.
We often go to Mimi's for breakfast on Sundays. The breakfast and lunch menus have a wide variety of choices. The food is always good and served well. My partner is gluten intolerant, and Mimi's is helpful in telling her what is available to her. Sit in the room off the entrance if possible, as the room in the back is very noisy. The last time we were there, the server did not keep my coffee filled, thus only 3 stars.
