This was a fun little out of the way local place. The Cuban mojo sandwich and shrimp soup are winners. Make sure to save room to share the almond butter cake. It was refreshing, not too sweet, and delicious. The staff was very efficient, friendly...More

We had heard good things and were not disappointed on our first visit. Nice, interesting cocktail menu. Great service - one of our servers had worked there since it opened years ago. The sample platter (Shuga's favorites) offered a good selection with a little salad,...More

This place is small and so special. It’s always busy and bustling so be prepared to be cozy. My favorite is the Shugas Cafe Tray! It’s a sample of the best they have in my opinion. An adult juicbox to wet your whistle with some...More

We all had a cup of soup (more like a small bowl) with the 2 bruchetas. I had the always yummy thai shrimp soup and one of my companions had the special cream of asparagus which she appeared to enjoy as well. Everything was good...More

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.
