For almost 15 years this small, family restaurant with a big reputation has been serving authentic German fare. Despite its heavy German lean the interior does not, thankfully, go overboard with German decor. The menu includes potato and sausage soup, weiner schnitzel, Rouladen, sauerbraten and goulash. The full bar includes a limited wine list and a nice selection of, German and European beers. Saturdays feature live music.
This sophisticated looking bakery has become a landmark on busy Centennial Boulevard. Diners appreciate that there is a separate take-out area so as to eliminate the usual hurried bakery atmosphere. Sandwiches are a popular lunch item. Try a buttery, flaky croissant sandwich, and it will not matter which meat you choose—the croissant makes the sandwich all by itself. Daily chef specials include pasta and pizza. Dessert options are a sugar lover's dream. Buy a slice of carrot cake or take a whole one home. Also open for dinner.
This gem of a place is the dining surprise of Old Colorado City. It is akin to stepping into a restaurant along the Mediterranean coast. The interior is amazingly light and airy, and manages to blend casual with elegance. As the area's only full-service Greek restaurant, it prides itself on complete authenticity. Aegean lamb, brizoles (pork chops) and chicken Mavrodaphne are just some of the Greek dishes that cram its menu. There are also dips, salads and plenty of Greek wines.
This popular pub brings Colorado Springs a hint of Ireland. The interior is very "United States-version-of-an-Irish-pub" typical and includes the expected dark wooden booths and brick walls. Nevertheless, it is appealing and offers a nice change from the usual chain look. Pretzel & Guinness sausage kabobs, corned beef and cabbage and bangers and mash are dinner menu highlights, as is the traditional Irish breakfast. Guinness is served on tap, so yes black and tans are available.
For a taste of the German experience, try this fabulous restaurant. The interior reflects the theme of the menu without going overboard. Accordion fans will want to visit on the weekend when live music is played. It is hard to say if you should order the potato pancakes or the bacon potato salad to go with your wurst and homemade kraut. Both are delicious, so sampling each might not be a bad idea. The potluck platter is the best choice for hearty diners who like to share.
