Stopped here for a coffee whilst taking a walk through the Historic District. We got two lattes and one cake. This came to over $14. Not too impressed.

Stopped for hot drinks and cake whist passing through Colorado Springs. Both were very good especially the chocolate eclair I had. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We stopped by here by chance. The wines were very good & the service was the best we had all weekend. They offer free samples of various CO wines & also sell wine by the glass or bottle. The prices were very fair. They also have painting classes available. I would definitely go back.

We bought several bottles of wine here. Very cute little shop & the wine tasting was great. This was our highlight of The old Colorado Springs area.

My wife loves coming here for coffee when we are walking around Colorado City. We have also done a free wine tasting of Colorado wines which was awesome. Definitely one of the best stores in Old Colorado City!

Located in a quaint corner storefront in Old Colorado City, this a perfect spot to relax with a cup of coffee, tea or glass of wine. Join a wine tasting or the wine club for opportunities to learn more about local wines. Sign up for a painting class taught by classically taught artists and bring home a unique souvenir for...

The Sweet Elephant was a neat little surprise! We were looking to have a glass of wine or two someplace a little unique and this establishment fit the bill. In addition to the wine tasting/purchase, you can also buy jewelry, household things and skincare. This was a funky little surprise, and the folks working there are incredibly welcoming and friendly.
