Overnight oats were delicious

Had overnight oats, small jar but lovely! .75 extra charge for oat milk is a bit annoying but will go back!

Delicious light breakfast!

Amazing coffee, vegan options and friendly staff makes this the perfect breakfast location! We had the bagel w/vegan butter and the avocado toast modified to be vegan. And did I mention that the coffee was amazing?

Pros: Vegan options, Amazing coffee, Friendly staff

Flexible and Delish

Friendly baristas and crew every time I go. Always willing to sub out meat and dairy for me, whether in a breakfast sandwich or their granola.

Pros: Vegan Alternatives, Tasty, Gluten-Friendly

Very disappointing

So the breakfast sandwich, which is like a bacon, egg and cheese on a bagel, had a *star next to the egg that said vegan substitute available. So i asked if that meant the entire sandwich could be veganized. The girl condescendingly told me that “bacon and cheese aren’t vegan”. So why say there’s a vegan egg substitute on an otherwise non vegan sandwich? So stupid. So then i ordered the granola with oat milk (in place of yogurt) and the same girl who felt she needed to tell me that bacon isn’t vegan, brought it out drizzled in honey. The coffee was decent but I wouldn’t put this place on happy cow.

Pros: decent coffee

Cons: rude staff, poorly marked menu, not many vegan options at all

I’ve been going here at least once a week for about a year now. Everyone that works there is so nice and super knowledgeable about their vegan options! Get the waffles before 12pm! They also have vegan pastries :)

Pros: great service , several options , calm and welcoming environment

The food quality has gone up, but the service has gone downhill a lot over the last year. The last time I was in, the food was brought to the table before the drinks. I ate my entire meal before the drinks finally showed up. The table next to me had the same thing happen to them.

Their coffee is some of the best in town though, so it's still worth popping in from time to time. Just be warned, they don't do a good job of keeping things in inventory, so be prepared to have a plan B or plan C if things are out.

Pros: Location is in a quaint neighborhood, Lots of great natural light, Good coffee

Cons: Bad service/management, Lack of outlets, Noisy street when sitting outside

I really enjoy the coffee here, and the atmosphere. It's very chill and the staff is great. They are very focused in taking care of the customers, so it's not always the fastest experience but it's worth it. They can make all the drinks with alternative milk; usually have both soy and almond milk available. Old School Bakery supplies the baked goods, which usually includes vegan goodies

Pros: Homemade vegan cream cheese!! That isn't gross!!!!

This place is incredible. I would argue that this is some of the best coffee I have had in Colorado Springs. They make an incredible latte and have multiple options for non dairy milk. They have a small menu, but almost everything either is vegan or can be. The pastries are vegan and they have a vegan cream cheese for all bagels and such. I will definitely be hanging out here more often! Plus, the staff is lovely!!

Pros: Great staff., Awesome coffee., Several vegan options.
