Had a chance for a girls night out. The Mediterranean board has olives, goat cheese, and amazing hummus. The bacon jalapeno Mac and cheese doesn't disappoint. Topped off with coffee, almond cake, and live music it was a great visit.

My husband and I went here on a dark and stormy night, lol, literally. It is cramped, dark, and very loud. It does seem to have a college vibe to it and I can see where it could be appealing to a different crowd. The...More

After climbing to the top of the 7 falls, We stopped at Shuga's restaurant for lunch (based on TripAdvisor recommendations). There was ample outdoor seating but the weather was not meanble for outdoors dining. The smallest indoor space had a wait line but after 10...More

We loved our visit to Shuga's for lunch. It's built in an old house, and you can eat on the porch, in any of the first floor rooms, or even in the backyard al fresco. The menu is not extensive, but really perfect for lunch....More

The restaurant is located away from the numerous eateries associated with the Old Colorado City and immediate downtown area. After a 20 mile bike ride, our group of 4 was very hungry and I didn't want to drive the 2 miles across town for some...More

No real gluten free options but their salads - they made that clear from the beginning. The salad nicose was very good and a great price. Server was to the point, all business.

I believe they do have gluten free. I know that Coquettes gluten free bakery will be moving in a block away from Shugas.

There is outdoor seating, but it's more of a funky than swanky vibe. Yes, you can see the mountains.

Established in 2001. Shuga's was created by Alexius Weston as a place to hang out with great food and really inventive cocktails. She had just come from the Northwest area of the country and wanted to create a cool space where she felt comfortable. Initially focusing on Vivace espresso as a delicious mainstay, the place soon morphed into serving amazing paninis, salads, and the out-of-this-world Brazilian Coconut Shrimp Soup. The infusion of Lavender Martinis and cocktails created with care helped launch Shuga's into the forefront of the local Colorado Springs food scene.
