Re: “Agia Sophia Coffee Shop & Bookstore

This place is great at making coffee, food, and a place to contemplate, study, read, etc... Coming from the NW, a place know for many coffee shops, it makes me happy.

Re: “R&R Coffee Café

If you like gourmet food and excellent service, then don't pass up this little gem. They roast their own coffee and sell several fine blends by the pound.
Food is prepared by a chef/baker with a 5star resume. They serve breakfast and lunch Monday-Saturday, and unbelievable dinners on Friday evenings.

Re: “Stir Coffee and Cocktails

Cool, hip coffee shop that's a wonderful alternative to you know who.

Coffee is great. My pecan pie was right out of the oven, warm, sweet and gooey.

Order at counter, take your selection to a table. Outside seating too. Not pricey.

Yard sale coffee cups and flatware, funky old metal lawn chairs from the 1940s, in a renovated gas station ... recycling and re-purposing at its best.

Girl at the counter was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Free Wi-Fi and parking.

In the Old North End Neighborhood (ONEN), in the BON Shopping Center, at corner of Jackson and Wahsatch, a few blocks from Penrose Hospital just off N. Nevada Ave.

Closes at 3PM most days. I'll be going back.

Re: “Cafe 225 Coffee Shop and Venue

new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.

Re: “SwitchBack Coffee Roasters  

I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.

Re: “Nemo's Coffee

I worked next door to Nemo's and was in there all the time. They have great drinks, and are willing to make things that aren't on the menu. All of the food there is delicious! Breakfast burritos, muffins and scones (made fresh every morning), croissant sandwiches, and salads. A little pricey but definitely worth it. The owner, Tracy, always remembers me and asks how I am doing. She is wonderful! Some of her staff is a bit forgetful and don't seem like they want to be there, but if you catch Tracy everything will be amazing.

Re: “Agia Sophia Coffee Shop & Bookstore

A quiet, gentle place overlooking Colorado Ave. with plenty of corners to disappear into with a book or your thoughts. Unassuming atmosphere, good selection of coffees and teas made a cup at a time.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

It would be awesome if they could hire an actual busperson who would actually clean the tables with disinfectant - I try not to think about when I eat there. Yuk.

Re: “Coffee Cup Café

Been there several times. Clientele a bit rough, lots of F bombs. Food was hit and miss. My egg/sausage sandwich was to die for the first time I went, then never came close in later visits. Burnt toast. How in the hell can a place that's been around this long burn the toast. Their other location in Gleneagles also burns the toast. An amateur operation.

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

The coffee itself is fine, but the owner, almost religiously expouses her alternative sexual lifestyle. I'm most bothered by the gay reading material strewn on the tables. Then she has "groups" come over and meet there. It's awkward to say in the least.

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

My family and I have really been treated rudely here. We have a disabled daughter who was mocked and made fun of by the barista. My daugther was really upset and started crying. I told the owner and she did nothing. I live next door to this place and I'm disappointed in their behavior. We won't go back again.

Re: “Colorado Coffee Merchants

These folks really think their coffee is really something special. While in reality they produce below average air roasted beans at outrageous prices. They use an air roaster which they will tout as a superior method but for some reason most of the award winning micro roasters across the country shy away from this method which is basically a giant popcorn popper that quickly roasts the coffee as opposed to a slower more crafted process (I recommend doing your own research air vs drum roasting). Air roasting is in fact a less accurate (lazy man's method) to roasting. This largely due to the fact there is no way to sample the roast as it progresses and it basically takes most the human crafting element out of the process. The problem is at this altitude roasting conditions are quite variable depending on barometric pressure and humidity and to not being able to sample the beans as they roast (which air roasting does not allow, you just set the temp and forget it) creates an inconsistent product (although I'm sure they would say its more consistent b/c they roast it for the same time every time). In addition, these guys think $1 an ounce for coffee is a good price which is in all honesty highway robbery. The owner and his wife are very proud of their establishment but in fact know very little about coffee and have really not been in the industry that long. When asked simple questions about freshness and how to store coffee they provided incorrect answers. They promote storing coffee in a freezer which they sell in other shops. Freezing beans is one of the worst ways to store coffee which is now widely understood by most serious coffee drinkers ( freezing expands the few water molecules in the beans and generally affects the overall flavor). In addition, they claim to be Fair Trade certified but the website does not list them as members. Colorado Springs for whatever reason has a lot of local coffee roasters and these folks really do fall on the bottom of the totem pole. Just don't settle on these guys beans you can find a superior product for 30% less without looking very hard at all. Try looking at any of the roasters that have been here for 10 years + there's a reason they've lasted that long and it certainly has nothing to do with there not being a Colorado Coffee Merchants around before.

Re: “Colorado Coffee Merchants

I having bought my espresso beans from Eric and his staff for years. The coffee is extremely fresh, typically roasted with days of purchase. It produce sweet, complex espresso with loads of crema. The staff are consistently welcoming and pleasant.they also make delicious drinks for in-house consumption.

Re: “Kairos Coffee and Tea

Rek Lee What evidence do have to prove "homeless" and "drug addict"? I could say that about you right here very easily, may be true, may be false, who knows? And what did you do when told you were not welcome? Anything? Or just post this comment?

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

Everyone ….please note the dates that these reviews were posted!
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.

Re: “Coyote's Coffee Den

Fremont County's best coffee! I love the service and the owners are great! I chose to pay more for a cup of coffee at the Coyote Coffee Den rather than the local gas station! The Breakfast Burritos are the best in the County also!
