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: “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: “Grant Pharms MMC

Absolutely love Grant Pharms! They take such pride in their medicine and their budtenders take time to get to know their patients. They have great buds, great concentrates, and great atmosphere. If you need help finding new strains for yourself, come check out Grant Pharms!

Re: “Grant Pharms MMC

BEST dispensary! I looked around the area, went to over 15 other so called professional medical marijuana shops and there is nobody that comes close! I became a member with them & have been treated with the best service, most professional crew and managers that I have seen in this industry. The prices are NOT the cheapest but the old saying "you get what you pay for" rings true here in CO. Spgs! Why buy something that is inferior and wont do the job? Get the best... go to GRANT PHARMS

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.

Re: “Edgewood Inn

My daughter was married at the Edgewood in May and I cannot speak highly enough about the experience! The staff and accommodations were excellent. Many of our guest's made a point to tell us this was the funnest wedding they had ever attended and I think a large portion of the credit needs to go to the Edgewood owners. They were easy to work with and very helpful through the weekend. The building and setting are so beautiful you have to see it to appreciate it. I recommend them without hesitation and would use their services in the future!

Re: “The Canna Center

So far, I've only bought edibles there, they have the cheapest edibles I could find, and I did my research. Their little hard candy edibles are 5 mg each, 20 in each bag, very easy to take with You! The women were nice and helpful, they are also the furthest east medical marijuana shop in Colorado springs, which is great for those of us in Falcon!

Re: “LivWell - Tejon

Had to check out the other LivWell locations after shopping at the murray store. The tejon store is so homey and comfortable. My first visit in I was made to feel as if I've been coming there forever. The staff knows what's up and recommended some awesome products for me . I'll be back!

Re: “LivWell - Murray

Great experience at LivWell. Their rewards system makes you feel good about splurging a little more than you might normally would. $25 to sign up as a member and another $25 for referring my friend to member up! Great spot, recommend everyone check em out!

Re: “Mother Muff's Kitchen & Spirits

Couldn't disagree more with the review. The critic must be some elitist arse, who'd be better off reviewing obscure restaurants with square plates or butcher's paper for a plate. Anyway, the three or four times I've eaten at Mother Muffs, the food has been great. Just what you'd expect after reading the menu. I've had BLT, fried raviolis, cheese sticks, and a burger. All were tasty. Service has been great. Prices are decent! Nice atmosphere in the front room. Olde school, pub feel!
