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: “Ola Juice Bar

This is the best. Tasty and healthy and friendly and downtown. What else do you need?

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: “European Café

This is a hidden secret of Colorado Springs. The restaurant is located at 1015 W. Colorado now and the phone number is 632-6309. The food is some of the best in our city. They strive for quality and freshness. Everything is homemade. My favorite restaurant.

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

Hello everyone my name is Ray and me and Joe just took over management roughly a month ago. I can assure you that this place will be turned around and bring back a friendly and bright culture to this community and this amazing restaurant. We are already seeing improvement by getting returning guests and compliments saying " thank you for taking over". We are starting to do a Fish fry on Fridays as well as a prime rib dinner on Saturday's. We are going to be known as a restaurant and bar. We are calling it Valley Hi Pub and Grill. so come see us and give us a chance to make a great first impression.

Re: “Which Wich

I was honestly surprised by how good their sandwiches were. It is a bit complicated-seeming at first, having to find a specific bag (out of about 10) to write down exactly which things you want on your sandwich. Nonetheless, surprised by the quality and the wait times are reasonable.

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

Anyone who is a customer or past customer could help me by sending owners or GM's name. I am moving back to COS and I want to turn that restaurant around. So that local neighbors can enjoy it. ikchefe@gmail.com

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: “The Caddie Shack Restaurant at Valley Hi Golf Course

It could be that Club Manager is keeping wages and morale low. Will not rate, just commenting on probable cause. rovinchef

Re: “Creekside Cuisine & Craft Beer

It is a beautiful restaurant in the midst of fun-loving Manitou, CO. The food is delicious and quit eclectic at very reasonable prices, especially given the location. The staff was on the ball and very friendly. Definitely a place I will be recommending to my friends.

Re: “Creekside Cuisine & Craft Beer

I've eaten here several times. Pizzas, BBQ pork sandwich, street tacos, fried pickles, fresh potato chips, and local craft beers were all delicious. Service was friendly. Thank you for re-opening such a beautiful location by the creek. I look forward to being part of your growth.

Re: “Ritz Grill

We just had our wedding reception at Ritz Grill and I can't even begin to find words for the service, food, and the entire amazing experience. From the time we met Amberdawn and began scheduling our reception, to her incredible team that took care of our party on the night of our reception - everything was PERFECT! Riley and Christy (our bartender and server) were loved by everyone in our party! They took great care of everyone (and Christy makes GREAT drinks!), and above all else, all the kids that were in attendance were treated like royalty as they sat up at the bar, ordered their "drinks," and chatted with the bartenders. The food was delicious and loved by everyone, and Riley knew who had food allergies, and what they were before we even had a chance to confirm everything with him. If you are looking for a cool atmosphere, amazing food and service, and to top it off - AFFORDABLE - Ritz Grill is as great as it gets!

Re: “Flatiron's American Bar and Grill

Learn the meaning of brunch. Made reservations thinking I was getting brunch only to realize the management didnt know the definition of bunch. They offer late breakfast but NO brunch. I should have gone to Ihop for this quality. Misleading and adding the wording brunch to a menu is just a lie... shame on you.
