Family-friendly options abound in Colorado Springs.
1. Adam’s Mountain Café is a quaint, sunny spot in nearby Manitou Springs whose repertoires skew fresh, local and healthy; though it offers kids’ selections, even picky eaters might just as soon go for the likes of the sesame-lemon chicken or vegetarian nachos on the regular menu.
2. With its rustic cantina-like atmosphere, Carlos Miguel’s is another good bet for the youngsters, who get free beverages and scoops of ice cream with their meals.
3. Drinks and dessert are also on the house with the children’s entrée at the more upscale, Southwestern-themed Sonterra Grill.
4.The Airplane Restaurant isn’t a gourmet destination. Rather, it’s your basic burger joint with one of its dining rooms housed in — you guessed it — a Boeing KC-97 tanker. Pint-sized adventurers adore it.
5. The Golden Bee at The Broadmoor is open to children up until 8 p.m. — and it’s a winner, too, with its fun pub menu featuring fish-and-chips, cheese-smothered chili and gooey desserts.
