There are so many great restaurants to choose from in Colorado, but during our short visit to Colorado Springs, we stopped at a cozy German style eatery called Edelweiss. Dining here might have been one of the best decisions we made that week. Everything was delicious from start to finish.
They have an adorable outdoor biergarten to enjoy on nice summer nights, like on the night we visited. It was tastefully decorated with lights, umbrellas and heaters. A comfortable spot for a meal day or night.
On the way into the restaurant, you will walk past multiple dessert cases that are filled with the most dazzling, mouth watering desserts you will ever see. I took a bunch of pictures on the way in so I knew what to order when the time came.
Ok, ok. Enough about the adorable decor, lets get to the menu! Without further ado, we present to you- Edelweiss! A charming restaurant serving authentic German cuisine!
Let’s start with their beer menu. They have an extensive beer list with a lot of beer from German breweries ON TAP!!! They also have some other choices available in bottles if you can’t find anything you like right away. In addition to the great beer list, there are plenty of great appetizers to choose from. Even though they all sounded tantalizing, we enjoyed a complimentary basket of gigantic, soft and fresh kaiser rolls with butter. In addition to that, most of the entrees include either a seasonal side salad or a cup of the soup of the day to start with.
Next up- the food! There is so much to choose from and we really wanted to try it all (while also saving room for dessert). We decided on 2 entrees and split them- the Hähnchen Normandy and the Rouladen. Everything had such a rich and authentic flavor. The sauces and sides were perfect complements to both dishes. I really don’t think there are any bad choices here, but these two dishes were outstanding! If I ever find myself in Colorado Springs again, I will definitely stop here for another fantastic meal. The real tough choice would be to either get the same dish that I know is amazing, or to explore one of the many other offerings on the menu.
NOTE- if you are on a strict no meat diet, the menu will be much more limited. They do have soft pretzels and a few pasta dishes that do not come with meat, otherwise you can just save room and try some of their amazing desserts instead.
Speaking of desserts- there are so many to choose from! There are all kinds of cakes, pastries, and tortes to try. Desserts with fruit, chocolate, nuts and everything in between. The slices of cake also come with a towering pile of fresh whipped cream. Again, I am quite convinced that anything from here will be amazing, so go crazy and try something new!
With such great food and a cozy atmosphere, the tables fill up fast. Reservations are recommended- especially if you want to sit outside, but are not necessary. The staff are very friendly, informative and helped us decide on what to order, since everything sounded so good! I had to pinch Paul a few times throughout our visit here to get him out of his slack-jawed, dreamlike trance.
If you find yourself in Colorado Springs and want to try something new, be sure to stop at Edelweiss! If you do decide visit here or have been here in the past, send us a message below and let us know what you thought!
