I had a great BLT there and there was a mix of people in the bar when we arrived- families, a single and two women. There is a juke box for music. The bartender/server was very attentive.

The Tavern has a great atmosphere and the pikes peak sandwich was healthy and very good. The coffee was tasty. The staff was friendly.

I didn't eat there so I can really recommend the food but I wanted to stop in because I love Rime of the Ancient Mariner. The staff was friendly and the layout was real neat. Exactly what you would expect to see from a name...More
