Re: “Muffin topped

I have since been in to alter the heating procedure for the cinnamon roll and so there should not be any more issues.

Re: “Muffin topped

I love the food. you forgot to mention the fact of the place is absolutely spotLess and doesn't smell like urine anymore. I love the fact that I can lean up against the bar and not worry about sticking to it by the years of all the grease that the last owner neglected to clean.

Re: “Muffin topped

I make the cinnamon rolls and there isn't much possibility of the cinnamon roll being dry with all the tallow and butter in it Unless it was heated up too long I may have to run a few reheat ideas by them. -shawn The sourdough boulangerie

Re: “Sorrisos kicks out addicting mountain-town Italian

Thanks for the insight, Shawn. The use of cream in carbonara is far from agreed upon.

Re: “Sorrisos kicks out addicting mountain-town Italian

What do you think a carbonara is its a cream based sauce finished ala minute with egg yolk

This is not the first, look up PAWS in Anaheim, CA.

Re: “Springs expects the nation's first dog-friendly eatery, CCM expands again

The Watering Bowl did this in Denver but the health department caused so many problems for them they had to stop allowing dogs inside. The Bark Bar in Denver was not an indoor restaurant, but a dog park bar and coffee place and again, neighbors and code enforcement shut them down. Local government would not give guidelines to how to comply before these businesses opened, so hopefully it will be different in the Springs. I'm really hoping governments can work with business people to make the concept work because for the few months I could take my dogs inside the Watering Bowl, it was awesome.

Re: “Garden of the Gods Gourmet's swank new spot and a new bbq truck

Our first and last visit to the cafe was disappointing to say the least. I would have given the cafe 2 stars for ambience, but after having to work our way through the maze of chairs to our table, it gets 1 star.

We ordered the beet salad with blackened salmon, the Friday fish and chips, (I hope they don't serve it any other day of the week) and the carnitas taco. All dish with pathetic and far from gourmet.

I guess the gourmet word for blackened is burnt. The only this that could have saved this meal was to scape of the burnt portion and ask for lemon which never came because our waitress forgot and spent her time folding napkins. The salad portion consisted of 4 beets and maybe a half cup of lettuce. A stretch of the term salad.

The fish and chips had greasy stale fries, oily flavorless cabbage, (I guess this was the cold slaw), two pieces of what appeared to be fish but on further investigation was just a thick over fired crust with dried out fish skin on the inside. At the end of our "lunch" and when our "waitress" was finished folding the napkins and looked up at her tables, we finally got the opportunity to let our waitress know about the meal. She said she'd take "a couple of bucks off". Real gourmet style I must say.

The pork carnitas looked like ground up baby food in a corn shell. Thats all I can say about that. Other than it didn't resemble anything I have ever seen ordered that had the word carnitas in it.

Shame of you...... 3 strikes..... your out!

Re: “Caspian Cafe, Illegal Pete's, Stir

Banoffi Pie is an English dessert pie made from bananas, cream and toffee from boiled condensed milk (or dulce de leche), either on a pastry base or one made from crumbled biscuits and butter. Some versions of the recipe also include chocolate, coffee or both.

Its name is a portmanteau constructed from the words "banana" and "toffee".

Re: “Meal of fortune

Great Burger of the Day with rosemary mushrooms and killer bacon. Done perfectly, delivered quickly and the restaurant was filled with kids laughing. What's not to love?

Well I'll believe it when I see it. Him not reopening again and again. Kind of reminds me of the movie groundhog day!

Re: “Meal of fortune

I ate there this summer. It was very expensive and all three burgers were RAW. I asked at least 5 different employees for 'help'. I finally walked up to the cashier area and asked for a manager of mangers. All the other 'managers' would grimace at the bloody meat and the raw, like oatmeal, veggie burger and say "sorry". The manager of managers kept telling me she was trying to meet me "half way". Half way to being cooked? I finally got my money back and went else to eat. Really sad. It will close sooner or later.

Re: “French Fry Heaven feels corporate through and through

This company has closed down franchises in New Jersey and Texas. Apparently customers nationwide are coming to the same conclusion concerning these french fries. Clearly these comments are NOT made to hurt anyone as a previous commenter mentioned but rather to bring product inferiority to the public.

Re: “Monument's DeVine Grill casts to seafood lovers

Took my wife for our anniversary dinner. Food was good, but portions were odd, her portion seemed very large, and mine seemed too small. Blackened Ahi was good but nothing too special. Steak was ordered medium but sent out rare to medium rare. They informed us that the shrimp wasn't good enough to serve so they substituted scallops, and the scallops were excellent. The soup was good. Restaurant was pretty empty on a Friday night. We got there at 6:15 and there were ~5 tables. We left about 7:30 and maybe 2 more tables had been seated. Overall happy with dinner but not too high on the "we will go back again" scale.
