Re: “Seeds Community Cafe, Wild Cider, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

Cider in America is in full Renaissance. IIRC, it's actually the fastest growing segment of alcoholic drinks. It's well worth seeking out non-mass market ciders, although some are quite good. I got hooked on them a few years ago and am fortunate that a local pub carries a very large selection.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

Agree with Ralph, our All Natural Burgers were best fast food burger to date.
Agree with Jah, Green Line Grill has an awesome burger and fries.
If Carl's is homophobic then I'll not darken their door again, same for Chik-Fil-A.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

We had a coupon for 2 for 1 on the new "All Natural Burger." I could not justify paying full price, but what we had was as close to what they look like on TV as I've ever seen. The cheddar was real, the ground beef was lean and fresh tasting, the toppings were fresh and the bun was something a step up from a normal hamburger bun. I know nothing of Carl's Jr. politics, but for half price it was the best burger I have had from a fast food joint.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

Can't give Carl's Jr., or any company that actively hates on our homosexual brothers and sisters any of my dimes.
But nice try Carl's to jump on a bandwagon while still being a sexist, homophobic organization. Green Line Grill, Quijotes' Mexican Hamburger, Drifters, Short Stop, and BJ's Velvet Freeze are all much, much better alternatives than this hateful chain.

Re: “Muffin topped

I just re-read your review and just need to say give it time they haven't been open long enough to work every bug out. You know this all too well as you have worked in the industry for quite awhile. So let them iron the kinks out and revisit.

Re: “Muffin topped

I have since been in to alter the heating procedure for the cinnamon roll and so there should not be any more issues.

Re: “Muffin topped

I love the food. you forgot to mention the fact of the place is absolutely spotLess and doesn't smell like urine anymore. I love the fact that I can lean up against the bar and not worry about sticking to it by the years of all the grease that the last owner neglected to clean.

Re: “Muffin topped

I make the cinnamon rolls and there isn't much possibility of the cinnamon roll being dry with all the tallow and butter in it Unless it was heated up too long I may have to run a few reheat ideas by them. -shawn The sourdough boulangerie

Re: “Sorrisos kicks out addicting mountain-town Italian

Thanks for the insight, Shawn. The use of cream in carbonara is far from agreed upon.

Re: “Sorrisos kicks out addicting mountain-town Italian

This is not the first, look up PAWS in Anaheim, CA.

Re: “Springs expects the nation's first dog-friendly eatery, CCM expands again

The Watering Bowl did this in Denver but the health department caused so many problems for them they had to stop allowing dogs inside. The Bark Bar in Denver was not an indoor restaurant, but a dog park bar and coffee place and again, neighbors and code enforcement shut them down. Local government would not give guidelines to how to comply before these businesses opened, so hopefully it will be different in the Springs. I'm really hoping governments can work with business people to make the concept work because for the few months I could take my dogs inside the Watering Bowl, it was awesome.

Re: “Garden of the Gods Gourmet's swank new spot and a new bbq truck

Our first and last visit to the cafe was disappointing to say the least. I would have given the cafe 2 stars for ambience, but after having to work our way through the maze of chairs to our table, it gets 1 star.

We ordered the beet salad with blackened salmon, the Friday fish and chips, (I hope they don't serve it any other day of the week) and the carnitas taco. All dish with pathetic and far from gourmet.

I guess the gourmet word for blackened is burnt. The only this that could have saved this meal was to scape of the burnt portion and ask for lemon which never came because our waitress forgot and spent her time folding napkins. The salad portion consisted of 4 beets and maybe a half cup of lettuce. A stretch of the term salad.

The fish and chips had greasy stale fries, oily flavorless cabbage, (I guess this was the cold slaw), two pieces of what appeared to be fish but on further investigation was just a thick over fired crust with dried out fish skin on the inside. At the end of our "lunch" and when our "waitress" was finished folding the napkins and looked up at her tables, we finally got the opportunity to let our waitress know about the meal. She said she'd take "a couple of bucks off". Real gourmet style I must say.

The pork carnitas looked like ground up baby food in a corn shell. Thats all I can say about that. Other than it didn't resemble anything I have ever seen ordered that had the word carnitas in it.

Shame of you...... 3 strikes..... your out!
