This coffee shop offers a great cup of java and many other hot drinks. The prices are very reasonable. It is usually pretty quite inside, so it is a great place to read a book or study. The atmosphere is definitely not that of a chain, which is a nice change from the typical Starbucks. They also do a lot to support local CSM students.
While I have not bought a bike here, they are my local stop for parts and tips on keeping up my bikes. The service is great and they are extremely knowledgeable about their products and are not afraid to admit when they don't have answers to every question. This small bike shop just recently increased their bike selection to include Specialized bikes, so I will be looking to go there for my next bike...
This coffee house is tucked off the main drag through Englewood and being right across the way from the library offers access to many businesses, while still providing a great place to get away for a cup of peace. Their drinks are good and they have much more than just coffee.
This UCC retreat center is a fantastic place that gets you away from the chaos of the world and makes you feel that much closer to God and his magnificent creation. The view of Pikes Peak is amazing, especially through the the chapel wall doors. There are lots of cabins, venues for performances and large gatherings, dinning hall, and the staff is great. I have been going to La Foret for many years and have never not enjoyed my stay.
My grandparents have been taking me to this place for years. So I have very fond memories to accompany the delicious food. It is a restruant with a lot of character.
Though I've never had a cheese steak from Philly, the ones made at South Philly here in Golden are delicious. They use fresh ingredients and have everything from an orgininal to something load with mushrooms, peppers, hotsauce, you name it. It is just a little place, but it has a big taste.
Woody's has fantastic pizza and even better deals! It is a local favorite for Colorado School of Mines students and Golden natives. It is a busy place. Check them out when they do trivia night on Sundays or come any day of the week to cash in on their steal deal on the menu for the salad and pizza bar. Did I mention that the pizza is delicious?
This is definitely one of the better Chinese restaurants in Golden. It is clean and in a great location in downtown historic Golden. Keep yours eyes open for it though, as it is located downstairs in one of the buildings on Washington. The food is great and the service is very hospitable. And of course there are place-mats to help you determine what animal you are based upon what year you were born!
Though the location is not always obvious to the naked eye, once found, this store is like a hidden gem in downtown historic Golden. This store, geared towards mountaineering and other outdoor sports carries very high quality items. The gear can be a bit pricey, but there is variety and quality in all their items. The staff is knowledgable about the equipment as well as good places to put your gear to work. There are also lots of good book resources to help you continue to grow in your sport.
Big Daddy Bagels has great bagels and then some. The smoothies, the coffee, the sandwiches are all great. Plus the staff is really friendly and enjoy serving you. This is a great place to stop early in the morning. The also have great deals on mixed bags of bagels.
