Marigold Cafe and Bakery
This sophisticated looking bakery has become a landmark on busy Centennial Boulevard. Diners appreciate that there is a separate take-out area so as to eliminate the usual hurried bakery atmosphere. Sandwiches are a popular lunch item. Try a buttery, flaky croissant sandwich, and it will not matter which meat you choose—the croissant makes the sandwich all by itself. Daily chef specials include pasta and pizza. Dessert options are a sugar lover's dream. Buy a slice of carrot cake or take a whole one home. Also open for dinner.
This is the absolute best restaurant in Colorado Springs. The food is consistently excellent, their daily specials are some of the best choices, however ALL the food is great. Best steaks in town, seafood specials to die for, pork chop w/melted brie and fruit chutney is one of my favorite, and lunch is wonderful. The staff is extremely attentive and polite. It isn't always easy to get in since it is so popular but calling ahead, or best case making reservations, you are assured of a table. It's locally owned and operated (which is so special since there are so many chain restaurants today) and the chef is a real artist. I feel comfortable going there super casual or dressed up for special occaisions. There really are no criticisms except that they are not open on Sundays, but I guess everyone needs a day off so, hey, why complain? I forgot to mention their incredible bakery/dessert menu...TO DIE FOR! You'll see!
