The History of Mountain Shadows Restaurant

Did you know Mountain Shadows Restaurant has been open for over 30 years? The original restaurant was opened in Lake George, Colorado west of Woodland Park, Colorado. In the early 1990’s, the restaurant moved down the pass to Old Colorado City and have been serving locals and tourists ever since.

Mountain Charm and Comfort Food

The Mountain Shadows Restaurant is located at 2223 W. Colorado Avenue in Old Colorado City, Colorado Springs, CO. They are open from 7:00am -2:00pm every day except for Tuesdays. They have two menus, the Breakfast menu and the Not-Breakfast menu and several different drink options.

The Breakfast menu had the traditional eggs and bacon, several types of omelets, pancakes, french toast, gravy and biscuits, and green chile specialties. The Non-Breakfast menu included salads, a variety of burgers, specialty sandwiches, and specialty plates.

When you’re thirsty for more than just water, you can have the traditional drinks such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or lemonade. Or you can choose from Irish Coffee, Bloody Mary’s, a variety of Mimosas, or several different micro brews.

When my husband and I went recently, I decided to have a Veggie Omelet with toast and homemade jelly with a side of fruit. It was delicious! My husband choose the Bleu Bacon Burger with fries. There’s a whole layer of Bleu cheese on the top of the burger! He really enjoyed his meal too.

We then decided to get the Giant Cinnamon Roll (which serves 6 people!) to go. It was so mouth-watering and the frosting had a creamy maple flavor. We’re definitely getting the Giant Cinnamon Roll the next time we visit!

A Visit From Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!

Back in 2015, Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives heard about Mountain Shadows Restaurant in Colorado Springs while driving through Colorado on his East West Flavorfest. He wanted to check this place out for himself. So he had the monstrous Mountain Roast Beef Sandwich, piled with cheese-smothered slices of roast beef, mushrooms and bacon, and the Giant Cinnamon Roll with a decadent glaze that he called “Maple Madness”. Needless to say, he wasn’t disappointed!
