Re: “Coquette's Bistro and Bakery

Went to the new location on South Tejon over the weekend. I was a little disappointed over three things: there was no off-street parking, the truffle fries were soggy, and there was a MASSIVE increase in prices. Only the latter is worth any angst, but $11 for a GLASS of wine seems excessive. On the positive side, I did enjoy the expanded menu, as I was growing tired of the usual choices at the N. Tejon location.

Re: “Judge Baldwin's Brewing Company

Horrible! I sat at the bar for over 5 minutes befor the bartender finally decided to make contact with me. He (Pablo) rudely and disrespectfully referred to me, a 58 year old woman, as hun several times while serving me a beer and asking for payment. Pablo never offered to pour a second beer when he saw my glass was empty, nor did he offer a thank you or goodbye when I finally decided to just leave. Pablo, Im not your hun!

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

Oh myAMAZING (and I do not use that word to describe muchat all!). Let me set the scene for you of our first impressions of this little gem. I was on vacation with my sister (first one ever!). All we had in mind for this trip was coffee, hiking, food and relaxation. On our way to the 7 Bridges trail, we saw this quaint looking caf on the side of the road. A quick passing glimpse gave us a good impression and we were anxious to check it out after our hike. Fast forward past our awesome hike and we were on the road again heading back to Sacred Grounds. To our surprise, the place was now glowing with soft strings of lights and had live acoustic music being played on the outdoor patio. The setting could not be more perfect, but the awesomeness was only just beginning. Zack stopped by our table to tell us the dinner options (no menujust a few choice selections). HmmmRussian potato cakes.those sound differentlets try them. While waiting for our entre, I decided to check out the inside. On my way, I passed a table of locals (you 3 know who you are, but we will keep you anonymous) and couldnt help but notice what looked like an awesome dinner option as well: Fiouchi. I asked Zack to add one of those to our order. There needs to be a drum roll here or something because these two entrees were nothing short of perfect in their presentation when they arrived. They passed the appearance test with flying colors, but what about the taste test? Let me just tell you.AMAZING!!!! The combination of flavors in both dishes far exceeded our wildest expectations!!! So much so that when we were both chewing our last bite of fiouchi (happened to be at the same time), I said to my sister...this is so good that I am still chewing my bite because I dont want the tastes to come to an endto which she saidME TOO!!!!! It is important to note at this moment that we both live in the Chicago area, so believe me when I tell you there is no shortage of fine food where we come from, so when we both say that Sacred Grounds could easily stand their ground (did you like that pun Zack???) among the best in Chicago, you can believe it. As the evening slowed and turned to soothing cocktails, coffee and hot chocolate, the owner (and chef), Natasha, came out from behind the swinging door to check in on everyone. She had such a happy and wonderful energy about herwe just loved her. We told her how positively amazing her creations were and that we would be back every night of our vacation for dinner.and we were!!!! We also had lunch there and stopped for provisions to bring with us on our hike too! This place is an absolute must for anyone looking for the best place in Colorado Springs. Next time I am in town, I am going to try to make sure I am in walking distance so I can go there for every meal. Now that we are back in the Chicago area, my sister and I are constantly saying that common saying of The Mountains are calling and I must go, but I think I am going to adapt the saying to say: The Grounds are calling and I must go! When you stop by, please tell Natasha and Zack that The Sisters say hello!

Re: “Shri Ganesh

I've have been to every Indian resturant in town and this is by far the best! No watered down curry sauces. Everything is full of favor. They actually give you the right proportion of meat verses sauce. Everyone is super friendly and goes the extra mile to make sure your satisfied. Lunch buffet changes daily with different items. Very clean, unlike a few other places I've been too. I saw some people walk in 2 mintues before lunch service closed and they willing, with arms open and smiling, still seated them and the whole 9 yards. Now that's great customer service. Won't go anywhere else now.

Re: “Colorado Coffee Merchants

I honestly think there coffee is the best not just because I used to work there but because Eric takes the time and consideration for the best tasting coffee and when that thing is running the customers loved the sound and smell I did I would always ask questions and it opened up my view of coffee making it was like you always knew it was fresh.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine

Ive had treatment from a number of different doctors, Toronto, and New York, but Dr ozalogbo the herbal doctor is the best Ive experienced. Hes very good at considering your whole situation, so hes not treating the symptoms, but their underlying causes. My herpes is gone, i have run several test to check myself and am fully cured of herpes through the use of Dr. ozalogbo herbal medicine. He is a very nice and understanding to talk to regarding health issues and i will advice you give him a contact, dont wait for whatever disease you have to bring you down without consulting Dr. ozalogbo, he is good at what he does. email him ozalogboshrine@gmail.com

Re: “Icing on the Cake

The occasion was my daughter's adoption party so we needed cakes. First time order from Icing on the Cake and chose two cakes. Both were equally DELICIOUS!!! This was not only my opinion but the opinions of the 40 plus family members. Chocolate and carrot cakes were our choice and have to say, hands down, the best carrot cake I've ever eaten!
Thank you so much for providing exactly what we ordered for our event, Mischa! Yourself and team, definitely have a talent! We were all very pleased!!!

Re: “Good Company Bar and Restaurant

I used to love this bar and frequent it quite often ($$$$) but I seemed to have gotten myself banned for life (a little extreme) when I gave my honest opinion to some new patrons that one of the bartenders wasn't good at mixing drinks and they should get a beer instead. They took it as me trying to "sway" their customers to go somewhere else. Not the case..... they just need to get rid of that bartender. I'm sure her drinks would be much better if she wasn't flirting with all the men so much or showing people pictures of her kid on her phone. It blows that they wouldn't hear my side of it that girl with the blond hair cut in a bob with some sort of accent blatantly lied. So now I'm salty and now I'm going to work really hard to "sway" people from this establishment.

Re: “Mi Viejo San Juan

I will revisit Mi Viejo San Juan. Last visit was not a pleasant experience. At the time I wanted to chalk it up to a 100% Puerto Rican looking 100% Irish or possibly a really bad day. Everything I ordered was dry and or overcooked.

Re: “The Caddie Shack Restaurant at Valley Hi Golf Course

Have not returned to the restaurant for a year after a dismal meal. Today my group had 4 different meals. Everybody raved about their food. I had fish and chips and it was superb. The batter was light and the fish cooked to perfection.
I suggest: even if you are not a golfer, go and treat yourself.

Re: “Carniceria Fruiteria El Ranchito

Best tacos in Colorado Springs at nearly the best price$1.49. Don't miss the refrigerated buffet with its host of salsas and sides, such as roasted peppers and sliced radishes. The carnitas tacos are wonderful, but there are plenty of other choices.

The tostadas at $2.99 include beans and your choice of meat as well as avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, and Mexcian cheese.

Place is inside a Mexican grocery. The sign is on a post near the street. There is not a noticeable sign saying El Ranchito on the building.
