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: “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: “SwitchBack Coffee Roasters  

Cool little hangout! Great coffee and staff. Very friendly. Cool Friday running "club". Reduced priced coffee after a run...not too shabby!

Re: “The Upper Room Coffee

Quaint "old victorian" shop with great people and a great vibe. Used to be Firehouse BBQ, located in a renovated turn of the century fire station on Colorado Blvd. just off of 8th street. Conveniently located just outside of downtown Colorado Springs; 2 blocks or so from I-25 just west of 8th Street.

Feels a lot like a neighborhood hang-out. Great place to watch the game, read a book, have a conversation, or just take some down time.

Jeff and Caryn Andrews are the owners and are usually there meeting people and making them feel like family. I highly recommend this place as a "must visit" for locals and guests.

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

I absolutely LOVE this place. The owners are very open, loving and caring. We hold our meditations upstairs and we rent the place to have a Metaphysical Meet and Greet. I bring my 3 year old autistic nephew and they are very accommodating for him. A wonderful atmosphere, a peaceful outside table, and great food and drinks.

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

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.

Re: “Coffee and Tea Zone

Best bubble tea in town! Friendly service and it's great place to bring your laptop to get some homework done or sit around and talk with friends.

Re: “The Coffee Exchange

Absolutely the best place for spicy Organic Fair Trade Chai downtown. They are one of a handful of places in Colorado Springs serving Boulder's freshly made Bhakti Chai and they do it right. When Tony say it's guaranteed to put fire in your belly, believe him. Their Chai keeps me going all through the afternoon.

Re: “Shuga's

Food, service and atmosphere are all top notch. If you've heard of Shuga's you've heard of their coconut shrimp soup. Order it. The 'boards' are super fun -- a beautiful and delicious array of cheeses, meats, veggies, breads/crackers; fun to share. Dessert is also to die for. Bring your wallet but you'll leave happy.
