About the Thai Iced Tea ice cream....
No real "creative thinking" or "experimentation" there. I've been eating Thai Iced Tea ice cream for years from Bhan Thai on Centennial. They put in a Glacier Ice Cream stand a few years back and have a few flavors created especially for them, included Thai iced tea. It's AMAZING, and needs no "dialing in."
I have eaten there several times and each time had something completely different. The bumble wrap is great and the new "the works" bagel is incredible. My family and I have never had a bad drink or meal at Gold Hill Java Downtown. I would recommend this coffee shop over any other downtown for its quiet, welcoming atmosphere and amazing friendly staff! Don't let the Indy discourage you from trying this new place you will be pleasantly surprised and you'll recommend it to all your friends and family. I have recommended it to all my friends and family and they have given it rave reviews. AS usual the Indy doesn't know what they are talking about and last I looked they aren't food critics they are biased writers with their own agendas! rag paper to say the least.
Gold Hill Java is a wonderful new neighbor to north-end Tejon businesses, residents, and shoppers. The coffee shop is always sparkling clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and welcoming. So far, we've tried the M wrap, the Bumbel wrap, and Polly Olly wrap--they've all been delicious. And that bite of fudge included with meals is heavenly! Give them a try--we don't think you'll be disappointed. John and Pam Ramsey, Tejon Street Music.
I live walking distance to India Palace, and so it's my go to "I don't feel like cooking" place to eat.
Every time I have eaten there since the new management has taken over, each and every dish has been spot on and perfect.
In fact, I enjoyed the Lamb Korma much better here at India Palace than I did while I was in England at no less than 3 curry houses that I went to. (My fiancee is from England, so he eats a lot of curry)
The Chai tea is a wonderful blend for when I want to be decadent.
Suddenly it makes sense where I had seen Raj Kumar before, I used to eat at "Taste of India" (it was a friend of mine's favorite curry house). Thank you for that realization as I couldn't place where I knew him from.
No More Bluefin!

Good stuff, well worth the visit.
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.

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
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.
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!
