Great restaurant, could improve vegan choices
Posted on 04 / 09 / 2013
I've been here three times, and it's one of my favorite restaurants in the Pikes Peak area. The staff clearly know a lot about the food and wine, and put quality first.
My first visit here, I had a delicious vegetable sandwich with a white bean spread that is sadly no long on the menu. The two other times I've been there I had the Thai Noodle Salad and the Rice Noodles with Spicy Tofu (which are very similar). Both times they were delicious. My friend and I "shared" the Crostini with Figs and Pears--we asked for the cheeses to be placed separately. However, the crackers also contain butter, which seems like an item that could be easily substituted to accommodate vegans! I know they change their menu regularly, so hopefully they can incorporate a wider variety of vegan options and/or substitutions.
For dessert, I had the apple crisp with a cashew-based faux "whip". On this last visit in particular, my friend and I stayed for a long dinner and were very well taken care of!
I wouldn't recommend this place for a quick bite, but for a high quality meal where every item is carefully thought out, it's fantastic!
High quality food, Knowledgable servers
Slower meal, Limited vegan substitutions
