  • It’s been a couple years since owner/chef Lateisha Scaffe took over this long-time Jamaican spot, whose drabs appearance and surroundings (think: order via a window, get a key to use an upstairs bathroom) belie the flavorful dishes the kitchen produces. First timers may wish to stick to a plate of the more familiar jerk chicken ($12 white meat), bright with baking spices and pepper essence, soft and sauced like barbecue, and always a treat with sappy fried plantains.…
  • East Colorado Springs restaurant The Collective has announced a five-course beer dinner for Wednesday, August 2, at 6 p.m. The beer will be provided by Longmont's Left Hand Brewing Company — you know, the one responsible for putting milk stouts on the map.

    Chef Justin Edgar has designed the menu, stepping notably above the unpretentious American eats turned gratuitous that usually come out of the Collective kitchen.…
  • After months of repairs and renovations on its new 616 S. Tejon St. location, Coquette's Bistro & Bakery (coquettesbistro.com) has reopened. The gluten-free eatery held limited-seating, limited-hours soft openings on July 20 and 21, before a full opening on Saturday, July 22.…

  • We like to see a focused menu — not too many items, all polished and perfected. Sosa’s Pupuseria does just that, churning out diverse pupusas for $2.75 each.…
  • We’ve highlighted coffee cocktails, or mocktails, several times in the recent past here, from Story Coffee Co.’s Old Fashioned spinoff, to The Principal’s Office’s “brewhito” (a mojito twist) to Urban Steam’s gingerbrew. Point being we’re having as much fun trying these drinks as the shops appear to be having creating them.…
  • After months of repairs and renovations, Coquette’s Bistro and Bakery has reopened in its new 616 Tejon St. location. On Saturday, July 15, co-owner Michelle Marx announced via Facebook that the gluten-free eatery would be holding limited-seating, limited-hours soft openings on Thursday, July 20 and Friday, July 21, before a full opening on Saturday, July 22.…
  • If sheer variety makes a taproom great, then Growler USA is the best in town, far and away, boasting a hundred-tap wall behind the bar. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t find hiccups at this Oregonian chain.…
  • Talk about bad luck. We stopped by recently opened Whirlyball for lunch on Wednesday, July 19, only to find the space closed and under heavy renovation.…
  • Side Dish Less than a year after opening, Inertia Coffee Company (4650 N. Nevada Ave., inertiacoffee.com) has expanded into a second location.
