We love going out for breakfast, I mean LOVE going out for breakfast. Especially, a small, locally owned place, with good, hearty food, that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg! Sandy’s Restaurant in Colorado Springs, is that place for us. We have never been disappointed, and we love the cozy feel we get every time we go in. We have been in several times since we found Sandy’s a couple years ago, and it is our favorite breakfast spot close to home. Most of their menu is homemade, and it tastes as such. This last time we went in, on New Year’s Day, I tried something new, I got the Chili & Cheese omelet with hash browns. The omelet comes in two sizes, the full size has 6 eggs, and a small size. I got the small size, the waitress called it the half-size, so I assume it has 3 eggs, but don’t quote me. It was smothered in their homemade red chili and, of course, cheese! The hash browns were perfectly cooked, and golden brown. Todd got a create-your-own omelet with bacon, ham, sausage, cheese, and smothered in their green chili. He also substituted the hash browns with french toast. Every time we go to Sandy’s he gets something smothered in green chili, he describes it as having good flavor and mildly spicy (he likes spicy foods). He says it has just the right amount of heat for breakfast. The food is always good at Sandy’s, and the atmosphere is comforting and welcoming. We will most certainly be back, over and over again. If you are in the area, swing by and try them out. Sandy’s is open early, and open for breakfast and lunch. They are located at 6940 Space Village Avenue, near the Peterson AFB North gate.
As big supporters of local businesses, one of our favorite things about Sandy’s is that they have been a part of the local community in Colorado Springs since the 1970s. When their regulars walk in, the waitresses know them by name and know where they like to sit. I could hear the conversations between the people who worked there and their customers, and it sounded more like old friends than a business conversation. We happily recommend trying out Sandy’s if you are in the area. It can get busy, so it may be a bit of a wait, but it is certainly worth the wait. You can check out Sandy’s at their website at https://sandys-restaurant.business.site/ and you can find them on Facebook.
