Food & Drink

After the Ride: Local Favorites

Shuga's Restaurant & Bar Try the Brazilian Coconut Shrimp Soup with the Quiche of the Day. It's the best soup of it's kind.
Jack Quinn's Go on a Saturday when Big Paddy's playing and get Katey to be your waitress. She kicks ass.
Mediterranean Cafe aka Med Cafe A true gem in the downtown area. There is nothing here that is not top notch.
The Rabbit Hole Drink a lot. Have fun. They'll take care of you.
King's Chef Diner Feel free to make fun of the entitled who bitch about the music, that they don't take plastic, or that the staff didn't kiss their whiny ass. They can go to Dennys.
Western Omelette Thick cut Bacon! Good sourdough toast, just get the hashbrowns crispy.
Mountain Shadows Restaurant Great food, fantastic service. Ben, Kasey and Tara are practically members of my family! Love this place. :)
Wimberger's Old World Bakery Best bread ever! Great meat selection. Some things are very expensive, however.
Front Range BBQ Nom! Get the beef brisket sammich and a sweet tea! For a side, go with the red beans and rice, fries were alright though.
La Baguette Bakery The best French onion soup in town.
Jives Coffee Lounge Have known about Jives since the owner told me about his dream as we sat together in Starbucks. Rock ON, Randy! The atmosphere is even better than what you described. Love the coffee and espresso too.
Dat's Italian! Excellent food. Family-owned and very nice people.
Pizzeria Rustica Bring your dog sit on the patio and order the Margherita and house cab!
Garden of the Gods Gourmet This visit was a struggle from the moment we entered the restaurant
Paravicini's Italian Bistro Ted Sexton and Franco Pisani, the owners, opened their doors, just minutes from our Old Colorado City home, to rave reviews and Franco, the head chef, deserves every one of them.
Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q 18 people I know on foursquare have been to Rudy's So it has to be good right. Which is is ver good.
Amanda's Fonda You can buy salsa to go! Trust me, you will want to take some home with you!
The Saraha Cafe Good, inexpensive food, great service.
Coyote's Coffee Den Really surprised that the food here is quite good. It's not spectacular, but for a dusty hole in the wall in Penrose it was a pleasant surprise.
