La Rosa in Palmer Lake serves New Mexican, though I have not found it to be much like the New Mexican food I know from the Santa Fe area. You might give it a try though - cute little place. La Rosa Southwestern Dining ‹ it's all about the chile!

Oh, and there is also Doug's Breakfast Lunch. Seems more like Albuquerque type diner food to me.

I've been to Manna several times and it is awesome! If you were blindfolded you would think you were at a gourmet restaurant. I highly recommend it. My favorite is the soup trio. I told the chef that I would marry him if he made soup for me every night!

Seriously though, the food is amazing. No booze though.

Last night, the Broadmoor opened up a new restaurant, Restaurant 1858 at Seven Falls. It's very nice (as you'd expect any Broadmoor restaurant to be).

Seven Falls has been closed for two years, after getting destroyed by flooding. The Broadmoor bought the property, and invested a lot of money in it. Gone are the rubber tomahawks in the gift shop. Gone are the colored lights. Gone is the traffic. It's much less kitchy than it used to be, and has a certain class to it that Seven Falls never used to have.

You park near the Golden Bee at the Broadmoor itself. They have shuttle busses running to take you to the Falls. There's a $14 admission fee. They're recommending spending a little time in the canyon, rather than just going to enjoy the restaurant. As such, casual dress is more than welcome in the restaurant.

My wife had a mixed Colorado grill, that was outstanding, particularly the venison sausage. They make trout about six different ways. I had trout with a bourbon glaze.

It's a little pricey, particularly when you factor in the admission fee. [It IS the Broadmoor.] But still, with drinks and wine, a shared appetizer and two desserts, we got out for under $200 (counting the admission fee).

Another nice addition to dining options in the Springs.

Wished Red, Hot, & Blue BBQ did not go out of business. Was a great place for BBQ.

That sounds expensive but I realize it is not clear from your post how many drinks there were, how many people involved. Can you give an idea of prices on the menu for food (not drinks)?

Default Vegan restaurant review! S 8th St.

The vegetable protein is actually chewy like meat, very tasty...get the $8 Cheesy Burritos...
and some open faced Sloppy something for $9...way more filling, btw.
The Messy Sloppy on a gluten free round bun very good.
Tortilla pie...um..more like a bowl of nachos...I suggest not ordering unless you really
like a lot of chips...it is not a 'pie', see.

Imitating Nosh, smaller portions, less food....thus, no big entree plates for $12-15.
Best Bloody Mary for $5-6 (I now know the secret ingredient)....best house Vodka ever,
very smooth ...Royal something...$3 or 3.50 on the rocks!

Generous pours! Music at right volume.

Opens 4- 2am gets busier by 6 pm.

1791 S 8th...corner of Cheyenne Blvd. 'The Burrowing Owl'

Wow I work a second job right near there and had no idea - they don't seem to have a lot of business - I wasn't even sure they had opened yet! Maybe its the hours - I'm not out a lot late at night.

Is it a bar scene or would it be suitable for a family dinner?

In the late evenings it would be people at the bar and sitting after dinner...
Family for sure earlier...that Broadmoor /Canyon crowd is pretty 'calm'.

BUT I asked for coffee at 6 pm ...and she said they didn't have any?
WHAT...Not that it wasn't made....didn't have it.
So on purpose when sitting at the bar tonight or a table at 7 pm...I am
going to ask for an Irish coffee and see what happens.

I'm going to try something new again.
Remember they open at 4 pm. At 6 the parking lot was full at their end.
They may have 60 different beers in cans or bottles no draft, just noticed.
Nice bathrooms, too...pink light over the Womens, blue over the Boys.

Interesting post as most of the springs is all commercial places. Thanks for updating because true family or unique eateries seem severely lacking in this town.
