“Great place for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

For great downtown Colorado Springs atmosphere and consistently excellent food and service, try the Olive Branch. My favorite for breakfast is the "Flying Dutchman" -- give it a try.

“Great Place for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I was in town for a couple of nights with the family, tried this place for breakfast on a whim and came back the next day. They have really good omelettes and options for kids. The service was friendly, and the biscuits are delightful. But the pièce de résistance was the fresh-squeezed orange juice.

“Substandard”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We popped over on a Friday night, since the wait was forever at Jack Quinn's next door. We should've waited. We were seated immediately, but then not greeted by a server for 10 minutes, and they weren't really super busy. (I suppose this should've been a sign). The menu has variety, but unfortunately, most of the food tasted like I could've cooked it myself, using ingredients from my own kitchen. We basically overpaid for food that had no real effort in it. They clearly aren't using quality ingredients.

However, the house salad was an interesting blend of flavor and texture. Greek inspired with a dill sauce.

But honestly, I would pass this place up in favor of Jack Quinn's for pub fare, Phantom Canyon or The Ritz.
