One of the best local coffee houses for all of the above. Thankfully they also have a little food. Refills are not free, but very cheap. Wish they had more outlets.

I got lucky and got a parking spot right up front and was able feed the meter as time went on. Coffee was good but I'm not a coffee snob so, what do I know? I got a medium drip and a refill and it barely cost me $3.00. I think it was on special. I found a tall top... More

They serve great latte's and just plain coffee if you wish. I love their light roast! They also serve food, but the most I've eaten is a bagel (which was good, btw). Most of all, the staff is very friendly!

This coffee shop is locally owned. They hire mostly college students. And those that they hire are very well mannered, courteous, and accomodating. They have a good selection of coffees. There is an upstairs suitable for small meetings; and there is an outside patio upstairs as well. I go there once a week. My favorite order is hot chocolate made... More

What kind of coffee do you want? It's here. Do you want to mix with the downtown professionals in Colorado Springs, they're here. French press is big enough for a 1/2 hour business meeting for two. (If you get one each, you'll buzz for the day) I go every time I get downtown. It's this good.

When you think of Colorado Springs, you may think of the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak or the US Air Force Academy. And while those are all worthwhile attractions in our fair city, located right in the heart of the city, we pride ourselves on being not only a local coffee house, but kind of an institution as well. Offering a great deal more than coffee, our menu extends to give locals and visitors alike an amazing selection of loose leaf teas, fresh fruit smoothies, sandwiches and desserts. Sit down and stay a spell, and enjoy our complimentary wi-fi for a bit, too. Whether you're on your way to the office, stopping in between classes or just visiting our little corner of the world, we invite you in any day of the week. In fact, take a look at the specials we offer on any given day.
