This place is a great local gem. Awesome patio (though small) and cool little setting. We love to make our way in while cruising around downtown. Unique food selection, and lovely cocktails. Definitely worth a stop.

It's kinda cool, kinda hip. The menu isn't long but it is rather diverse for how small it is. Prices are kinda' high for what you get, but you're paying for the uniqueness and the attempt at freshness. Service can be spotty/slow. But this is...More

I finally made it to Shuga’s and I have to say, I don’t get it. This place is way overrated. It’s not bad food but it is certainly mediocre at best. If I’m going to pay this much for food, I expect better than what...More

Rolled up into this cute little neighborhood by accident. Decided to pop in. So glad I did. This is a summer restaurant if I’ve ever seen one. Yes, it’s perfectly lovely in other seasons I suspect but if I HAD to choose one season -...More

Homemade soups, great sandwiches, Interesting tasty salads. Loved my delish cocktail. We sat on the dog-friendly patio. The prices are SO reasonable for these tasty treats. You must try the shrimp bisque. This restaurant is in a home so it's not a super clean swanky...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.
