REVIEWS OF Garden of the Gods Market and Cafe IN Colorado

Kristen Maiorano

This places deserves 5 stars. The staff is incredibly friendly and the food is super delicious. Well prepared and thoughtful creative but not over the top dishes. My server was so sweet and friendly and gave great descriptions of the food items to help me make my selection. When I dropped my fork, she immediate brought me a new one without even asking. The shrimp & grits and the hubris rancheros were both incredible. Highly recommend. This place is fantastic

Sharon Lucas

Wow! This place is great! I got a bloody Mary and the avocado toast and they were made perfectly. The hostess Jade, Was very helpful since it was our first time there. Great customer service. I would highly recommend coming here. Donte was a great server.

Lavon Welch

We had such an enjoyable breakfast. The staff was what you would want. The food was really good (and that kind of compliment about good tastin' food doesn't come easy from a guy from New Orleans). It was a little crowded but my wife and I still were able to have good conversation. I definitely recommend it for breakfast.

Matthew Shattuck

Excellent food! Some restaurants are okay and some seem like their mediocre Garden of the Gods Market and Cafe is superb and a MUST go resturant if visiting Colorado Springs. The food was very nice and came out perfect. Although there was one instance where a meal came out wrong, but the server immediately fixed the problem. We loved that the outdoor area was dog friendly and one time sat in the rain outside just to eat the food. Take time out of your trip or everyday life to come here because you will not be disappointed. You probably will want to come back again!

Carl Backstrom

I think I got them on an off day on my first visit. Their machine was down so they cancelled all orders for soda. They were also super busy at lunch and there was no room in the parking lot. Food was also very slow. Side salad only consists of lettuce, dressing, and a few croutons (not uncommon). Otherwise, the food was good.

Melissa Vallejo

The staff is great, quick and friendly. The place is clean. The food is trying too hard. I ordered the blueberry lemon French toast. French toast it is not. It's is two slices of lemon blueberry cake. The syrup is cold and the coffee is not great. My husband did enjoy the mountain man hash but the toast we were served was the end of the loaf. Small and hard. The waitress saw this and brought us a new slice which was much better than the first. Why did the kitchen think the first slices were acceptable. Anyways, with the combination of meh food and their high prices, we won't be back. I think it's kind of a tourist trap. There are better places at half the price.

Kelly Duncanson

I didn't visit the restaurant, but the bakery is DELISH and fairly priced

Katherine Blum

Everything here is delicious! It all tastes very fresh. The staff is great as well. Always an excellent meal!

Emily Beer

The people who work here are wonderful and so kind, and the food and market are incredible. Thank you for the lovely experience, you've stolen a piece of my heart!

Christy Fopma

Delicious options, fresh and creative, great service. It’s pleasant to eat here. The only issue is how loud it is when it’s busy, and it’s always busy because the food is so DANG GOOD.

Justin Bartholomew

Our family checked this place out after a morning hike. The food here is too notch. We all tried each other's food and we're very happy. I highly recommend this place for breakfast and I am excited to come back and try what they have for lunch. Great service and atmosphere as well. The little store attached is also great, we got some items from the bakery and they were super good. If you go here you will have a great time.

Dominic Bono

Amazing food and an eclectic but not daunting menu even for picky eaters. They also made the best Chai latte I've ever had. Get there early, there *will* be a line

Juan Bell

Had a great experience eating here! Dante was our server and he was very attentive and polite! Food was delicious would definitely recommend the shrimp and grits. Well prepared well seasoned not to spicy and the bacon on the shrimp definitely complimented the entire dish!

Julie Jones

Excellent location for quality Cafe food. Got there about three, it wasn't crowded. I had a cousin come into town and she asked me to go back here. This place has a nice feel to it. Menu is like a cafe in Boston I liked.

Amy Crocker

Friendly service and fresh food! A great find.

Daniela Fawcett

The food was delicious a little pricey. It’s a wonderful brunch place they serve breakfast all day. It has the farm to table concept. The breakfast plates were small and I left hungry, but like I mention before I have a large appetite.

Cheree Frederick

Such a wonderful brunch/lunch spot! The decor and atmosphere are beautiful, the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, and the food is exceptional! They have a wide variety of unique options and everything I've tried there has been wonderful!

Griffin 3

Fairly good food, good variety, served in a pretentious atmosphere. The New Yorker (a Reuben) was actually spectacular, and the custom-seasoned fries were amazing. The special sauce that came with the sandwich was a perfect accompaniment to everything at the table: spicy yet creamy. The breakfasts ordered by my business mates were both generous and tasty, but $80 for three breakfasts, drinks and an appetizer seemed on the pricy side, taking advantage of the tourists.

Victoria Thomas

Go early on a Saturday & just enjoy the food & ambiance. Y’all. If you’re looking for responsibly sourced & perfectly prepared Southern hits, you gotta hit up GG! For starters, the grits!!!! They are fabulous! And the buttermilk biscuit is the best in town. Eggs taste delicious & are perfectly cooked. Ordered sunny side up and they came out perfectly sunny side up. Can’t wait to come back & try a pimento cheese sandwich! Lots of other non-Southern things on the menu but it’s always nice to see Southern food done well outside the region. ❤️

Dane Bressert

Excellent experience. Brock was an incredible server. He really made it a fun breakfast experience for my wife and I. The food was delicious and prompt. The mimosa carafe was insanely delicious. Can’t recommend the lavender/gin concoction enough.

Joy COSnative

Always love this place! The food is so good. Service is great. We're still enjoying homemade flour tortillas chips from the market!

Kaleb M

Extremely good breakfast. Wait staff is nice and restaurant is clean. The inside is modern and very ambient. The food is extremely good. You can tell the ingredients are fresh and each dish is made to the chefs best ability. I have never bought anything from the market but everything looks good.

Julie Margaret

Absolutely amazing menu! The food is top notch! Don't feel like cooking or perhaps you're needing a dish to take to a dinner? The Market is wonderful. Grab and go! Macaroni and Cheese is the BEST my family has ever experienced! Great gifts too... Hot sauces. Cakes. French pastries. Exotic cheeses. Designer pickles. Etc, etc. Must try!!!

Krystal Dawson

Hands down, some of the best food I have ever tasted. I had the shrimp and grits and avocado toast. Portion size were huge, and big enough to share. Can't wait to go back.

Mikki Gates

Bothered by the way we were just treated trying to purchase a cake for my grandmother's 88th birthday. First, we stood with flowers in our hands while the two employees ignored us to talk about their tips, then when they finally acknowledged us we were greeted with a slap on the counter (I assume indicating that I should set the flowers down). I said, "We'd actually like to purchase a whole cake as well" and was immediately given a grimace and rude response of looking around me at the cake counter. The cake we wanted in the counter had slices taken out of it, so the grimace was because it wasn't whole, I again assume. I said, "We weren't sure if there were whole cakes someplace else". One employee was kind enough to say I'll go check in the back, yet the other (and obviously more senior employee) stopped her and had her look in just one spot. "Nope, sorry..." was the response we received. Not, "Is there another cake you'd like?" or anything resembling customer service. I totally get it - talking about your tip out is way more important than helping customers. Welp, you just lost at least $60 in sales - might not seem like much, but if your employees keep treating people this way it will definitely add up.

Kristen Deenihan

The food is so fresh and delicious! The service was excellent too! Go during the week if you can to avoid big crowds.

Aaron Tucker

Good breakfast. Ginger was excellent in serving me while I worked over the phone.

Kevin Delange

This restaurant was perfect! Every dish we ordered was fantastic and the service was great. We especially loved the grilled cheese and green chili grits. We'll be back!

Kat Hanson

We were seated and tended to immediately. I appreciate that this place serves freshly squeezed OJ - something you don't find often unfortunately. However, $7 for a glass of it seems a bit excessive. The food came quick and was very good though it didn't blow me away. My latte was delicious.

Inglebert Dickens

Definitely a must if you're in the area or are a local. I'm from Nevada so this was a treat! We hit this place up after spending the morning in Garden of the Gods (which is also amazing). I had the BLT and most of the others in my group had the Cheeseburger. Both were absolutely to die for, even though the food took an extra minute or two to come out of the kitchen (well worth the wait). For checking into the restaurant on Yelp! we were given a coupon for a free treat in the Market which was a $5 pastry!

Chip Rea

Great food and solid service. Great background music too

Seamus O'Halloran

Editing my review to mention that our waiter was just fantastic, good food great service and THERE WAS A PUPPY that the hostess was holding while a customer was busy with something. Correct thing ever, lil yellow lab.

Kristine Hulet

Lots of seating. Decent variety in the breakfast menu. Service got slower as they got busier (had to ask for my bill). The market is amazing with a lot of refrigerated food choices and beautiful pastries to choose from.

Wesley Steinmetz

You got to stop by this place for breakfast or lunch. First, the Wagu burger with garlic aioli fries were terrific. The servers here are very personable and attentive. After breakfast or lunch definitely check out their market- bake shop. I recommend the coconut cake, German chocolate cake, and the curry turkey salad to take home with you. Peggy in the bakery was super friendly, engaged in her job, and especially helpful with some really great recommendations.

Chris stoph

Very nice atmosphere. Quality food. Decent cup of joe. We were seated straight away. Average price for food in the area, would most likely stop here again. Staff was very attentive and friendly.

Anna Prosise

Such a fun find! Great place to go if you’re looking for some great “farm to table” food. Brock was the best server we have ever had. His kindness, and willingness to give us the best possible experience are both qualities that have been lost in the service industry. Will be coming back!

Kyle Mead

Great food. My wife and I like to try new places and really only go BACK to places we really like. The management of this office has ties to a couple other Colorado Springs restaurants and they know their stuff. My mom and dad asked us to go back because they liked the breakfast so much and my mom enjoys looking around the in store market. Always a good choice if you can get's packed after about 9am on the weekend.

Carly Kayee

Hostess that greeted me and my friend gave us both dirty looks. I came in smoke on my face and said hello so maybe it’s my fault for coming in happy? and we came in at separate times and they didn’t even say hello or acknowledge us with anything but a look, I asked our very kind waitress and she said her name was Jay or Jade, food was great and drinks were great, but the fact that we were greeted with such negative energy. I almost didn’t want to go back in because I was in such a good mood and got a look because of it I guess. 10/10 would recommend for the food but maybe they should teach the hostesses to be nicer maybe

Matthew Hexter

If you’re looking for a quaint restaurant in the Springs be sure to check them out! The Brooklyn sandwich is absolutely amazing! And the Springs Slope Sangria made with Evergood Elixirs Snow Bunny is to die for! Wow. Good stuff!

Ramon Lapenta

First time was pretty good, second time with guests was quite mediocre today. Ordered my eggs done and came back raw, had to send back and waiter had a bit of an attitude about it. Pancakes on cold plates, cold syrup and cold butter. One of my guests asked if it was possible to put ham on an omelette, waiter said no. Then I was told the cost of my plate was waived because of the trouble, and I didn’t check the ticket carefully before leaving. I didn’t want to keep making it worse for everyone so I just paid and left, now I realize they only discounted $4.50 out of $15. Will not come back.

Scott Stone

We waited for a table for 20 min all while looking at 10 or more open tables. We were told to visit the market place while we wait, clearly a sales gimmick. When we finally got to a table we sat for another 10 min without water or anyone stopping at the table at all. So we left!! The place is way too expensive to have such poor service!!

Brian VanBlarcum

Great breakfast and polite staff. Had the Lemon Blueberry French toast and hash! We stopped here on our way up Pikes Peak.

Patricia Smerchek

We just got home and decided to try garden of the gods market because I couldn't get dinner ready anyway we tried the meat lasagna

Ginger Frost

Great food healthy choices wonderful service. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

Jessica Teague

This was a beautifully designed cafe!! The food was extraordinary- I had the Southwestern Benedict, and the spinich was deliciously sauteed, the hollandaise that mixes with the crumbly bagel really had warm taste from the cumin. I adore the mixed green chilies that were spread out and gave a nice heat to overall taste. Fresh squeezed orange juice every day at this cafe so fresh you can taste zest in it!! Will definitely be coming back for more!!

Danyiell Lindoerfer Eckrich

Food and service was wonderful!!!!! They do not do substitutions for the most part but everything was amazing anyway!!! They do list their clean food vendors at the bottom of the menu which was so cool! To be that transparent about what is going into your meal was really great! Happy eating!!!

Dan Quick

Consistency and quality ingredients here. Always satisfied and found each of the FOUR meals I ate here over three days to be entirely delicious.

Steve Lanning

We have frequented this place since they were in their old location in a tiny shop and we love going there almost every weekend to either enjoy their kitchen brunch and/or to pick up their delicious quiche of the week. We've enjoyed their soups, vegetable lasagnas and much more. We highly recommend Garden of the Gods Market and Cafe.

Kenneth Leiviska

Fantastic food. Had the Colorado Wagyu Cheeseburger. Very fresh with lots of flavor. Lots of veggies, sauces were good. The fries were also fantastic, and a large portion of food overall. Definitely recommend. I also was pleased they do serve a gluten free bread.

MaryBeth Massey

The food, drinks and service were amazing! What a perfect place for a lingering brunch! We ordered the bottle of champagne and juice flight to make our own mimosas. The lattes were beautiful! The avacado toast was to die for! My friends ordered the quiche, Benedict and lemon-blueberry french toast, all of which were sensational. Thank you for a wonderful morning!

Matthew Kilgore

Crowded but for good reason. Really great dishes at reasonable prices. Even with the crowds they hustled us a table and service was great.

Mathias Isassi

The atmosphere is comforting and the overall vibe is great! The hostess was polite and attentive. Food was INCREDIBLE!! My wife and I shared the Market Benedict and Lemon Blueberry French Toast. One of the BEST breakfasts we've ever had!!!


Everything about this place is awesome. The inside set up is bright and welcoming. The menu choices are unique and there is a good variety to choose from. Our service was courteous, timely and appreciated. The food quality was excellent, my wife had gluten free pancakes and I had a Cuban. The bakery store is nothing short of amazing and there was so much to choose from we has a hard time making a decision. The people working there are super nice and must love their jobs.

Ariel Gullickson

Favorite place for breakfast and a mimosa (or 3)! Go durring the week to get the best experience though, the food comes out much better than it does on weekends. All the servers I've had are wonderful. If you dont mind sitting at the bar (which I prefer) Allie and Colby are my favorite! LOVE chatting with Allie and enjoying the good food and drinks.

Christine Parker

This was pricier than expected but almost everything was way worth it. The only thing that wasn't 100% was the biscuits and gravy. The wagyu burger was really good, the grilled cheese was great. My kids loved the hot chocolate experience. They were friendly and super understanding of our rowdy kids. I did get a few bakery items (pecan bar, lemon lavender cookie sandwich, brownie and mini apple muffin). They were OK. I'd stick to their entree options myself.


I can sincerely say that we had a 5 * experience! The moment we stepped in the door we greeted by friendly staff. Our waiter was just as friendly and helped us out since it was our first time visiting. The food was delicious (Good portions for the price), and the bakery had some amazing treats. We literally almost got one of everything.

Lorenzo Garcia

Excellent service. Really good food cooked with fresh ingredients. I love it everytime!

James N. Salapatas

Food eclectic and tasty. Service professional and friendly. Market goodies outstanding

Cheyanne Bohnen

Love this location took cooking classes here when I was young and it was such a fantastic experience!

Mike Muskat

Very well run restaurant. Very crowded on a Sunday morning. Extensive drink selection with unique breakfast and lunch options. Excellent service.

Jessica B.

This place has easily become my favorite. Service goes above and beyond here. My waitress Kristen truly went above and beyond providing customer service. Compliments to the chef too, food was amazing!

Vicki Shattuck

We were visiting from St. Louis MO and found this restaurant on our first day. We loved the Southwest Benedict SO MUCH that we came back later in the week and sat in the RAIN (we had our dachshund with us) to eat it again!!! Wonderful food and excellent service!!!

Lisa Vezzoli

We stopped by for brunch on Easter Sunday and absolutely loved our visit! The food was amazing (the daily omelette special was so delicious!!), the service was spectacular, and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for! Thanks for giving us such a great experience. If we are ever back in Colorado Springs, we will be stopping by again!

Joshua Wrye

Definitely a must if you're in the area or are a local. I'm from Nevada so this was a treat! We hit this place up after spending the morning in Garden of the Gods (which is also amazing).

For checking into the restaurant on Yelp! we were given a coupon for a free treat in the Market which was a $5 pastry! This place was definitely a highlight of our day. The service was impeccable and the food was on-point. They even offered a sliced banana to my little niece (1 year-old) so she could eat while we waited for our food - so sweet of them! The next time we're visiting our family, this will be a must on our journey. Stop on by and grab a bite to eat - you won't be disappointed!

Logan May

The food and drinks were amazing! Our waiter Tyler was very knowledgeable and helpful! Great experience would definitely recommend.

Nick Newman

The lemon blueberry French toast was superb. I high recommend the hash with cheese. Amazing service and very cool restaurant atmosphere. I would say it’s a little overpriced, but what bougie brunch place isn’t overpriced.

Bill Evans

I have been here a number of times before. This place is normally pretty decent. Today I came and they were a little busy. I expected it to take a little than normal. I had a table sit next to me that was greeted and given their drinks before my server even came to greet me. It took over 10 minutes for her to come to me. When she finally did arrive she wasn't prepared to provide service. I simply left. I am not going to pay $25 for my meal (as an individual) and not be taken care of properly. Not going to name names. But it will be a while before I come back.

Tom Sanchez

Great breakfast and to my surprise fresh squeezed orange juice. Awesome!

Siri Norman

Amazing. Was just looking for anywhere to eat breakfast and ended up with a culinary experience! I had the Southwest eggs Benedict with a truly exceptional brown butter hollandaise sauce. Strawberry preserves seemed homemade. Bacon was

Will Vitale

Outstanding service, and brilliant breakfast. It felt as if I consumed my weight in deliciousness. Highly recommend to anyone coming through the springs.
