The people that work here are super friendly and super cool and the chef dishes out some tasty bites of vittles. Love the metal cafeteria serving trays that the food is presented on. Don't really have a favorite. Nice easy menu that doesn't assault you...More

Shuga's is becoming the Grande Dame of the neighborhood! I have been enjoying Shuga's since it opened. The menu changes slightly with the seasons. I usually order the Araceli Nicoise. However, I decided to go with the Oliver Green salad. I have had it before......but...More

This is off the beaten track in the downtown area and is worth a trip. Before I go further: when it is busy it is VERY LOUD: high ceiling, open design, no attempt at sound deadening (they could even put it under the table and...More

Thanks for the suggestion of putting the sound baffling under tables and chairs. We will definitely look into that and see if it helps!

We went to this restaurant after spending a few hours at Seven Falls. My friend’s dog was with us and we were happy to find out that they allowed dogs. We sat outside on the patio (of course, with a dog we couldn’t sit inside)...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.
