Amazing! - Edit

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

Downhill - Edit

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

Noms! - Edit

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!!!!

OH MY YES. - Edit

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.
