Gold Hill Java, downtown Colorado Springs

There’s a great new cafe called Gold Hill Java downtown on the corner of Tejon and Boulder, where that Boulder Street Roasters place used to be. Their original location is in Woodland Park, so you may have heard of it before.

We stopped in today for a cafe latte and an Italian cream soda. They have four sizes of coffee drinks, which was good for me today because I was able to get a small 8 oz. latte. I had been drinking coffee all morning plus we just had lunch so I was too full for a big old coffee drink.

They have a huge menu of drinks but they also have my fave, about 8 different food items that you can order as either  a sandwich, a wrap, a salad, or a pizza. And they have ice cream and house made baked goods, too. One of their special baked goods is a daily bread pudding special. Bread pudding is good, but that’s a strange thing to have a different one of everyday. I’ll have to try it to see what it’s all about!

They also make affogato, which is an awesome drink made with vanilla ice cream and espresso. I haven’t seen it too many places so I’m pretty happy they have it so nearby. The special affogato this month also includes hot fudge in it. Wow. Speaking of fudge, they also have a bunch of different house made fudges. LOL. Fudges, is that a word?

They also roast their own coffee beans, which must have been what my dad and I smelled when we left the house the other day when my parents were visiting. My dad asked if there was a coffee roasting place nearby and I said I didn’t think so. But I guess that was it.

The decor is cute enough, MUCH better than what was there before. Also, there seem to be fewer people loitering outside which was always annoying.

They don’t have the greatest hours, Sunday through Thursday til 7 pm and Friday and Saturday til 9 pm. I wish cafes here would stay open late every night. And by late I mean till at least midnight. But I don’t know any here that do, so, we’ll have to take what we can get. Also, free wifi.

Overall this is a welcome addition to this part of downtown and I am looking forward to going back many times. Let us know what you think of it if you go!
