Small restaurant where you place your order and it will be brought to your table. It's connected to a bookstore and toy store by the same owner. Different and interesting. Pizza is delicious and the slices are huge. I loved the salad with house dressing. Wine bottle was 1/2 off on Sunday and they had an amazing guitarist playing. Beware... More

Cool place - book store, toy shop, restaurant. Each shop is excellent - the smell of new books and candles, the sound of toys and laughter, the smells of fabulous food. In fact, the food was incredible! My salad was so fresh! Tried their pizza...it was wonderful (and I'm from Boston so I know good pizza). We sat outside on... More

My wife and I spent almost two hours here. This place is attached to a bookstore that has new and used books; and attached to a toy store. The gentlemen in the book store were very knowledgeable and especially friendly! The guy in the toy store section was equally nice and helpful.

It isn't quite accurate to call Poor Richard's a restaurant as it is also a tea/wine shoppe, book/gift store, and toy store! The food is casual fare, good and in most cases quite healthy! They have several vegetarian and vegan choices and (not so healthy) yummy pizza. Enjoy the food, but be sure to save time to browse the fun... More

I have been going there for years. They are consistently good, and friendly. Pizza is very good. Good salads with their own delicious dressing. Food is freshly made. Homemade pastries. Good soups. Funky atmosphere.

We decided to come here after the usual lunch rush hour and we had a great time eating pizza, letting the kids play in the play area in the back (mainly for young tots), and then we went and perused the toy store, coffee shop, and book store. There is a lot to look at, which makes it great for... More

Poor Richard's offers great food, a unique gift store, toy store and a fabulous wine and chocolate bar including local entertainment. The owners are hands on and often there. Staff are all great and ready to assist you. During warmer weather the outdoor patio provides the perfect spot to relax. You will fall in love so come check it out

Poor Richard's has been in business for a very long time and the food remains consistently great and tastes like homemade. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. If you're visiting Colorado Springs stay away from the chain restaurants and try Poor Richard's. It's located in downtown. There's also a wine bar next door and a toy and bookstore that are... More

Good food with a variety of choices. Self serve table service. The connecting stores of coffee shop, gifts, toys and books can keep a person happy there, for hours. Something for everyone and all ages!!

As much as I loved the pizza (avocado/bacon/artichoke), I loved the atmosphere. Chose to sit outside with the lovely murals and fountain. Little gem inside as that the restaurant is hooked onto a toy store, coffee bar, wine bar, bookstore, and some live music on chosen nights. Excellent introduction to the culinary greats of the Springs. Highly recommended.
