Better than Starbucks Colorado Springs Food Guy found a coffee house that is better than Starbucks. I visited The Perk Downtown Coffee and Tea House located at 14 S Tejon Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. The coffee tastes fresh and that is because they own a roasting house just a few blocks away. Their baristas are friendly, super nice and very knowledgeable. I sampled several beverages during my visit. The sweet vanilla Chi Tea was robust and very satisfying. The lattes were made to perfection. The tropical smoothie was made with fresh fruits that you could taste with every sip. The shop has great décor and is very clean. There is also outside seating on both floors for warm summer days. However, the people are what make this coffee house better than rest. Everyone, from the patrons to the owners, Don and Kay Heaberlin, was very warm and inviting. If you need to take a quick break or just need a place where you can unwind, the Perk Downtown is the place to go. They have live performances by local artists. The Perk Downtown has great coffee and tea at great prices in addition to their wonderful service.

I've been there at different times of the day on the weekend and weekday. Nothing but positive good service. The only reason for 4 of stars is because at neither time did anyone (staff) ask if I was doing alright or needed anything when they stepped around the counter to wipe off tables. I'd totally recommend the "Perk" to others and I often do.

Was in town briefly, so I only visited twice, but I'll miss it. Baristas were super friendly, and the coffee was really great. Didn't have any food because, ya know, it's a coffee shop.

I've never eaten here, but it is a great place to grab a cup of tea and hang out with friends. Great atmosphere.

HORRIBLE experiences there! I had two completely unrelated incidents where their staff was so incredibly outwardly rude to me . . . one staff member almost came across the counter at me. I wrote a letter to the owner and asked for an apology and was completely ignored. I stayed away then eight years later, I decided to try them again. This time, I had another staff person tear into me. Unprovoked and beyond unprofessional. These people will NEVER get my business again - at either location. They had a chance to make it right and they made a choice to do nothing. They must hire the most angry anti-customer service people on the planet. Not only will I never return but I will definitely direct business elsewhere every chance I get.

Kathleen, I just happened upon your older review of our business and it completely threw me off. I guess my first question is where and when did this happen? Just so you know, we are The Perk Downtown and not affiliated with Pikes Perk. I first want to see if this happened at Pikes Perk or our shop. If it happened at our shop, was it at the time of your review? I ask that question because I have been managing since last October. Almost a year now. I have taken over running everything and I have replaced almost the entire staff. The past management drove away more customers than I can count and they have been gone since day one. We have gone to great lengths to hire and train only the best baristas possible. They give amazing customer service and it shows daily. I am hoping a praying that this was not one of our current staff. I should have caught this much earlier but some accounts online have just been given to me. It sounds as though we have lost you forever and for that I am so very sorry. Even though this is a past issue., I wanted to formally apologize. Please let me know if there is ever ANYTHING I can do to rebuild your trust in us.
