Florissant isn’t known as a place to eat and drink. But I implore you: Go. Even as the no-stoplight town has resisted development, Iron Tree has proven a strong contender in the Pikes Peak region’s culinary scene.

Chefs are firm in their locally sourced, made-from-scratch devotion, and oh yes, the burgers, pizzas and sandwiches will make you salivate. Then there’s the in-house brewery that calls itself Funky Town, concocting funky brews indeed. Click here for a menu and more.
