Our favorite cafes: Rico’s, Shugas, Montagues, and Dogtooth

We love Rico’s. Sometimes we sit inside, sometimes out on the back patio, and sometimes on the sidewalk cafe area.

They have all sorts of fancy wines, and they sell them in 3 oz. as well as the usual 6 oz. glasses which is really great if you don’t want to drink too much or if you want to try a few different wines from their extensive list.

They also have a few beers and some cocktails. Happy Hour is 4-6 Sunday -Wednesday.

They have really good coffee drinks, teas, an iced tea bar, and hot chocolates. Recently I had one of their spiked espresso drinks with vanilla vodka and chocolate liquor. Yum!

As you probably know, Shuga’s is my favorite place in town.
They have a full bar including a bunch of really creative and unusual cocktails, a full espresso bar, and a great food menu. The menus all change seasonally.
They have Happy Hour from 3-6.
We usually sit inside because it’s so pretty but they do have a nice back patio as well as sidewalk seating in front.

We’ve only recently discovered Montague’s at 1019 South
Tejon Street, Colorado Springs, CO. (719) 520-0672
The decor is full on Victorian old lady, but the coffee and desserts are awesome. They have pretty good food, too.
They don’t have a website but they do stay open pretty late- you should call for their hours- they vary.

The cakes at Montegue's are really excellent. They even have some gluten free.

Another one of our faves is Dogtooth Coffee. You can get a yummy sandwich, or espressos, or the best gelato in town. We like to sit outside on the patio, and you can bring your dog!
