Colorado Springs, Colorado (and area) restaurants
Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods and the Airforce Academy attract thousands of visitors and tourists to Colorado Springs every year. Residents can also claim some of the best dining and restaurants in Colorado. Nearly every fare imaginable is well represented, including authentic Italian, Coffeehouses, Colorado cuisine and even establishments offering vegetarian cuisine.
A remarkable array of high quality dining can also be found outside the city limits, especially to the west in nearby Manitou Springs (sits at the base of Pike's Peak - see photos). North of Colorado Springs is the town of Monument, conveniently located between Colorado Springs and Castle Rock off of Route 25.
