Bonfire coffee is well designed, has plenty of outlets, great food, a very friendly staff, and serves good fare at a reasonable price. Finding a great coffee shop in the mountains of Colorado is difficult to do, which leads me to Starbucks on some occasions...MoreHermes; Thank you so much for your glowing review. We try very hard to offer a great product - it is nice to hear we have achieved our goal. It has been our pleasure to serve you.

I stayed in Glenwood and wanted a great smoothie. Found this place on Google. Tonic Juicery is wonderful! They are artist at making their own juices and tonics. Wonderful taste and good for you. Hidden and out of the way, but darn it - find it, you won't be disappointed. I had the avacadolada that was tangy, gingery and filling.

Sat at the bar. Nice setting. Food is not anywhere near Denver sushi quality. Fish is poorly cut and uneven. Sashimi is cut super thin nd almost see through. Sushi rice is formed like little fat cigars. Tea is quite diluted. Service is good.

Ate at this restaurant recently and while one of us enjoyed the Veal Piccata, the Beef Cheeks were slimey and rissotto unevenly cooked. I would give this restaurant another try, but never again with the beef cheeks.

Phat Thai

Reviewed By Timaca - Flagstaff, Arizona

I like a lot of vegetables. I also need my food without sauces as I have multiple food intolerance issues. Phat Thai was perfect for me! I ate the edamame, brown rice and stir fry vegetables (without any sauce). There was plenty for me for dinner AND enough for lunch the next day. I liked that the take out containers were compostable.

The menu was enjoyable to read, so were the t-shirts (they do NOT have locations in London, etc). :-). We enjoyed sitting outside for our meal.
