I love this place. It’s a hipster haven with great atmosphere for light food and drinks. On a warm night the tables outside are heaven. Nice little neighborhood minutes from downtown and the people who work here are super nice.

We visited Colorado Springs in August 2018, and found this place on Yelp. It is located in a kind of a residential neighborhood. Upon arrival, we just loved the atmosphere. What made it better, was the staff. Our waiter was great :). Our food was...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

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.
