Poor Richard's pizza is wonderful. They also have great vegetarian dishes. This is a hip, funky place that seems to cater mostly to locals. Their salads are great too. Be sure to try their house-made vinaigrette salad dressing.

Not a big restaurant, kinda small, but definitely a local fave with good food. Totally cool being connected to the best toy store and best book store also. The stores are all in a row with open doors between them

Love this place. I used to eat here during an internship in 2000/01, so when hubbie and I returned to Colorado Springs for a visit, I took him there. It's a bit granola-ey, with lots of vegetarian selections, so I wasn't sure he'd go for...More

Great Veggie Burgers...I haven't tried a lot of the other things on their menu, but what I see that they bring to other people looks good! (Especially their pizzas)
