Re: “Stir Coffee & Cocktails’ strengths lie in its coffee shop roots

I've been to Stir on several occasions and ALWAYS find it very satisfying - to the friendly staff, to my favorite chicken salad croissant sandwich - it never has disappointed. Hardly mediocre, and the books are very real. Sad to read a review that is sub-standard at best, giving very little credence to the unique atmosphere and fun, friendly folks who work there.

Can we give a bad review to the review and a high five to Stir?

Re: “In-N-Out Burger announces Colorado Springs location; people freak out

I just hope they plan on initially opening enough stores in the springs. Can you imagine the hell that would ensue if they initially opened only a single location?

Re: “In-N-Out Burger announces Colorado Springs location; people freak out

Great, exactly what we need... another mediocre burger chain and another ho-hum California business that we were doing just fine without. If you want California businesses, move to California.

Re: “Stir Coffee & Cocktails’ strengths lie in its coffee shop roots

To quote one of my favorite movies

"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends.


Dont forget many times going off menus is the best

Re: “Wyatt’s Pub & Grill is no slouch

Wyatt's is the best "bar food" in town! The fish and chips, pork sliders, and pizza are our favorites. The staff is also great, we love having Wyatt's around the corner!!

Re: “Coal Mine Dragon's punishing lunch buffet

Re: “Coal Mine Dragon's punishing lunch buffet

I've always thought the same thing.
Who wants this buffet when there are several better in the area. It's not like their delivery is any better.

Re: “The Purple Toad fails to live up to its promise, despite cool mascot

Is it me or does it seem as though Mr. Schniper had already made up his mind about the place before even stepping foot in the door? He clearly has been disappointed by the Cow and is unable to be objective knowing this place is owned by the same people. The Purple Toad is by far the nicest place to eat in Falcon- the service is always excellent and the decor is both upscale and comfortable at the same time. What kind of a person slams a locally owned business for hanging up the American flag for crying out loud? This is Falcon, not L.A. or NYC and the place fits right into our neighborhood perfectly.

Ive eaten there a dozen times and everything Ive ordered has been fantastic. They actually do have a chef working in the kitchen who came from Patty Jewitt / Garden of the Gods Gourmet and was a contestant on Hells Kitchen. The reviewers opinion of just 3 out of the 40+ menu items is not a fair representation of the place as a whole...and Im sorry but Im pretty sure that most people prefer cocktails that taste smooth not being able to taste the alcohol doesnt mean there is a problem- it means the ingredients in the recipe are well-balanced. This is restaurant 101 stuff here... but I would certainly hope that the food writer at the Independent would know that already.
