This delightful little neighborhood cafe and coffee house has changed ownership in the last two years and deserves a fair shot at a new start! We have been there at least three times and have enjoyed each visit. The owner is a very pleasant woman and her staff is kind, efficient, helpful and very adept at making your time there pleasant and memorable.
Please treat yourself and give them a try! It is very enjoyable and relaxing.
The selection is wonderful, the yarn is everything from fine to bulky, acrylic to mohair, the store smells like a mildew basement but I can even call that character...
But the help, has much to be desired. I've been here a few times and every time it has been rude, seemed more worried about their precious stash than running a business, and after my last experience I decided I would happily pay a little more for the same thing for a smile and a respectful employee who was willing to help me.
I picked out several skeins of alpaca yarn, went to pay and their machine was not reading my card (I had used it not 5 minutes earlier to get gas and lunch) and I suggested typing in the number. She glared at me and said no that charges me when your card comes back declined and I'm guessing it will having this many problems reading it and then I'm out 2$. She then proceeded to tell me where an ATM is and how I need to go get cash and bring it back to purchase because she doesn't have time to play games with my card. (I've had this happen twice out of the 4 times I decided to grin and bear the help. First time I obliged and went and got cash not having time to go somewhere else)
This last time I said thanks but I will take my business elsewhere or order my yarn needs off line.
Sometimes it's worth it to put your customers first knowing you will reap the rewards of a returning happy customer. Good customer service reaping positive Word of mouth is key to growing mom and pop shops these days especially when there's "mega buy it all here stores" for everything on every other corner.
It could be that Club Manager is keeping wages and morale low. Will not rate, just commenting on probable cause. rovinchef
Great place to shop, unique items, good prices, nice people, vendors and customers, come back and find something different every time. Great way to spend a day, or two.
They raised prices... $30 an 1/8 total rip off
Best of everything specially god awful tattoos. Thanks for making my once ugly tattoos beautiful.
Best dispensary I have been to!!
Just moved to Colorado, went to a different dispensery and they were very rude and iffy about my out of state ID. At Maggie's, staff was very friendly and helpful. Good prices and great pre rolls.
Best live entertainment venue in Colorado Springs! Great sound and lights, very clean and classy environment, feels like Chicago, or New York.
The burgers are awesome. I don't know if it's the homemade buns or the grass fed beef. The ranch dressing is the best I ever had. Want a delicious burger and fries this is the stop in Colorado Springs.
Always a pleasant experience...with all my questions answered...I didn't feel out of place asking dumb questions...i still got the rock star service
Forgot to dobe star thing... Five stars..

I have a membership some other place. But today, I just wanted a pre roll, and needed somewhere close to where I was. My roommate had noticed the green cross n powers there other day. So I have this v place a try. Didn't have pre rolls, but the guy behind the counter, ordered a gram for a good price. He showed for different types, cant remember all the names, they were sativas and s hybrid which I like. They all smelled so fresh and juicy, so clean and crisp I wanted an oz. Of all. But running low on money. I chose ramulen diesel. Got home, fired up a bowl.. Taste like it smell s. Absolutely, great high.. Very pleased... Can't remember the fellows name that was working, but he was awesome, I may change memberships.... I will be back. Great bud, glad my roommate was paying attention, hard to find. If you pass it you have to go down and back. Unless. There is another way around. Rambling on I am enjoying there bud.. Anyways, great place, great bud, I will be back.

I love this dispensary. Mindy is top notch Budtender/Manager and is always willing to take the time to answer questions. My wife and I have been going there since Feb when we got our cards. Their Canna Creations edibles are awesome. I love the brownies, Canabombs, Nibs, and The peanut clusters. Our favorite strains are Roadkill Unicorn(sat), Tranquil Elephantizer(hyb), Romulan Diesel(ind), and ACE of Spades(ind).
Amazing sandwich's and great people.
You made an announcement on your morning show at 6 this morning that there is a hotel opening up I think in Manitou Springs you said that It allows you to legally smoke pot in your room at that motel the first of its kind you announced. just to bring you up to date there is a motel called the Manitou Inn that gives you weed when you check in you get an 1 gram for staying one night you get an eighth if you stay one week they have a special room behind the motel where you can go down and smoke your weed and drink your beer and other words just a great big party kids running in and out of this weed infested place and the police know about it and do nothingInn. I realize that weed is legal but for persons over 21 children should not be allowed in the party room as they call it. just to update you on your false information.
I haven't been there since last summer, since I've cut back on my shopping while getting rid of my excess inventory, but it's been one of my favorites stores to find unique and different things, so I hate to see bad comments about it. They sell everything from Antiques to handmade to garage sale stuff, which is why it's so fun, you never know what you'll find. The prices also range from overpriced, to great deals. I don't go downtown very often, but make a special trip now and then just for the Treasure Shoppe, and have been going off and on for years, so can't believe they've gone so far downhill in a year. If you just want antiques, stick to the actual antique stores, since just because they sell some antiques, doesn't make them an "antique" store. A lot of places are combining antiques with other things these days, which is great for people like me, and like they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure. I've always found great things there, at decent prices, since I look for items to resell myself. It's in the top of my top 10 stores to shop, so I really don't know what people are complaining about, they're obviously shopping for something specific and are looking in the wrong store. No matter, the Treasure Shoppe definitely gets a thumbs up from me.
Very helpful service.the girl working today Rebecca was amazing! She knew everything about the store and really helped me out. It is hard to find people that actually care about treating customers properly and she definitely nailed it!
It is a beautiful restaurant in the midst of fun-loving Manitou, CO. The food is delicious and quit eclectic at very reasonable prices, especially given the location. The staff was on the ball and very friendly. Definitely a place I will be recommending to my friends.
Dont waste your time at this places !!!!! Ive rarely EVER seen SO MUCH JUNK AND TRASH packed into one place . Walking through the store i was baffled WHERE ARE THE ANTIQUES ????? All i saw was a bunch of CHEAP OVERPRICED MOSTLY CHINESE IMPORTED CRAP trying to be passed off as collectibles .This is one of the biggest collection of pretty much useless CRAP ive ever seen !!! The word ANTIQUES need be forever stricken from the Shoppes name .Things are grossly overpriced and there is more current imported junk than should be in one place . There are NO mancave items as advertised and the best ANTIQUE i saw in the store was ME you can find much better stuff at the crappiest booth at any flea market than you ll encounter here. TREASURE SHOPPE needs be renamed Mary Ellens Lame Gifts and Chinese Imports. Your time at this stop will be totally wasted .Spend your time ANYWHERE but this cheap knock off of an antique store.Youll be severely disappointed and your parking meter fare will be wasted money.Donate the quarter to the closest homeless person and cut your losses.ZERO STARS MINUS STARS ACTUALLY.What a DUMP.!!!!!!
