In style breakfast spot Snooze opens location on the north aspect of Colorado Springs | Woodmen version
Morning meals get even tastier thanks to a Denver-based restaurant that brings its creative menu to the north side of Springs.
Snooze, the popular breakfast and brunch restaurant, is opening a restaurant on April 24 at 7587 N. Academy Boulevard, Suite 120, on the corner of N. Academy Boulevard and Agora Point. Known for its fun, quirky breakfasts and entertaining atmosphere, Snooze is a popular morning meal for many Coloradans.
Since opening in 2006, Snooze has grown in popularity, and local residents have requested that the restaurant open a location in Colorado Springs. According to Snooze Communications Manager Becky Fairchild, Snooze was happy to accommodate its customers.
“We’ve heard from the Colorado Springs community for a while that they wanted their own snooze location,” Fairchild said. “Although it was always part of our plan to have a location here, we wanted it to be the right place and we found it.”
It’s their fun, flavorful food that put Snooze on the morning dining menu. Chile Verde Benny, Juan’s Breakfast Tacos, and Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes give these popular dishes a quirky twist, and their Smashed Avocado Benny, an English muffin made with green chili and smashed avocado, is a visual treat too.
A variety of drinks such as Dirty Drunken Chai, Morning Marg and Rummmosa highlight the morning cocktail menu. Breakfast burritos and tacos as well as egg and pancake meals are standard dishes.
Founded by Jon and Adam Schlegel, Snooze has restaurants in Boulder and Fort Collins, as well as Arizona, California and Texas. With every new location that Snooze creates, the restaurant tries to improve the environment by planting one tree per employee at its partner Godoy coffee farm in Guatemala. Snooze plans to plant 2,100 trees on Earth Day, Monday.
For its pre-opening charity breakfast, Snooze is partnering with the Catamount Institute, Colorado Springs Food Rescue, and Home Front Cares to raise funds and support from the community and neighbors. Snooze also celebrates special holidays to give back to the community. On National Pancake Day, Snooze donates 100 percent of its pancake sales to local community gardens and participates in planting, weeding and mowing jobs, Fairchild said.
“This snooze is really special as it is our first location in this market. The Colorado Springs community has been traveling to Denver for some time to enjoy our (food). So we are very happy to answer your inquiries about a new location, ”said Fairchild.
“We not only open in a community, but with the community.
“We want to have a positive impact in every neighborhood we live in and that starts before we open our doors.”
