Service was slow and NOT friendly. Coffee drink was overly sweetened but interesting in concept. Burrito was great, but we ended up having to wait for one person to get a coffee while the other sat and ate. Was a nice environment.

Give this hidden gem a try. The comfortable relaxing atmosphere makes it even better. The coffee beats the other guys hands down. Service was great, friendly, and fast. Worth the trip.

I have been here several times. It is right outside of the Army Base. The coffee is good. Lunch is a little expensive but good. I have had the chicken salad and bagel and lox. There is nothing to complain about here. The ambiance is relaxing and nice.

Friendly staff. Sharp interior. Ordered 2 coffees. Both were hot and perfect flavor. Speed seemed great. Just what we needed that afternoon after 3 long days of travel.

I am somewhat of a coffee snob and I enjoyed this coffee. The outdoor/ indoor seating was plentiful. I had to run next door to Safeway to buy myself some gluten free soy free food. If you do not have food allergies, the breakfast choices ranged from great looking pastries and quiches to breakfast burritos.

The coffees rate right up there with more well known coffee establishments. They offer a good selection of pastries and freshly made sandwiches to go with you coffee. Staff is always friendly and very responsive.

This cafe is close to both Route 115 and Interstate 25 as well as Fort Carson, the U.S. Army Mountain Post. I had dropped someone at the COS Airport very early and was wanting a real good cup of coffee. Being unfamiliar with the area, I asked Siri on my iPhone for a coffee shop. It was just after 6:00...
