Colorado Springs popular westside market and café moves downtown

Garden of the Gods Market and Cafe is open downtown.

Mitch Yellen, owner of Altitude Hospitality Group, couldn’t be more pleased that Garden of the Gods Market and Café opens Friday, April 16, at its new location at 616 S. Tejon St. in downtown Colorado Springs.

Executive chef Ariel Bilyeu has created a beautiful menu for breakfast and lunch with a variety of options including vegan dishes and some new menu items with an urban flair. Never fear, many of the popular dishes from the previous menu remain too, such as banana bread French toast and juicy burgers. There also will be sandwiches, soups, salads and desserts.

Hours for the café are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Hours for the market are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Details: 471-2799,

The market is stocked with grab-and-go soups, entrees and baked goods. It is also home to a wedding and events catering company. There is no dine-in service offered.
