If you dislike big brand coffee shops, that can be found in almost every town. Abhore the cookie cutter chains where every coffee shop looks alike. And if you are looking for a quirky, locally owned coffee place…Then I have the perfect place for you when you come to Colorado Springs.
NEMO’S is the place to you want to go for great atmosphere, wonderful food, and coffee that will keep you coming back for more.
The Anderson’s run the place offering organic coffee, substitutes for milk: soy, almond and coconut. More than most other coffee places in town, trust me I’ve checked.
They also offer a plethora of other goodies to stave off the hunger pangs. Sandwiches,salads, biscotti, and Hubby’s favorite…the sausage breakfast burrito with salsa. If given the option, Hubby will choose to go to Nemo’s to get me coffee so he can have his favorite.
Nemo’s is a coffee house and your favorite lunch spot all rolled into one locally owned pretty package.
When you walk in mismatched table and chairs greet you, along with a couch for relaxing, shelves ladened with books invite you to pull out your favorite and curl up on the couch or easy chair and read to your hearts content. All while enjoying your favorite cup of coffee, or tea.
If work is your aim, then pick a table, as I’ve done to write this article. Spread out a bit and let the creativity flow.
Nemo’s is the place I prove to myself just how much I enjoy my creature comforts. Though I have options of things to eat and drink I typically get the same thing…a caramel swirl with coconut milk. The only variation being whether it’s iced or hot. Another favorite is the homemade biscotti (I highly recommend their white chocolate macadamia nut), they even offer gluten free options.
Hubby’s favorite drink is a sweetened iced latte, and of course their sausage burrito.
When in doubt ask about your allergy. Tracey is very knowledgeable about what exactly goes into the food she serves. Check out their website, she make most of her offerings from scratch, to the point that she even grinds her own wheat. Talk about attention to detail!
Go get your turtle power and let me know what you thought of the place. You can go inside or drive through, which ever you choose you won’t regret it.
Nemo’s is located at 2114 E Pikes Peak Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80909 719-635-2745
