60. Savor a Margherita Pizza at Pulcinella’s Pizzeria

I’ve been starting to make a habit of visiting Pulcinella’s Pizzeria recently for lunch.  I just can’t get away from their fantastic margherita pizza.  It’s fresh, crispy, and delicious.  What’s even better is that pizza lovers can enjoy this gourmet pie for half-price every Monday!  Honestly, if you can find a better pizza deal in [...]

55. Breakfast at Rainbow Restaurant

When John Gunther stated that, “All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast” I think he had the Rainbow Restaurant in mind. I discovered another Fort Collins gem today when I visited the Rainbow Restaurant. Quaint, local,  charming, vegetarian friendly, and welcoming are some of the first words that come to mind when I think of [...]

53. $1 Pints and Savory Bar-B-Que at Mo Jeaux’s

I had heard rumors of a cool, down-to-earth Fort Collins bar offering $1 pints of anything on tap every Wednesday night. Today I discovered that the rumors of cheap beer were only scratching the surface. Not only can you get $1 pints of anything on tap every Wednesday night at Mo Jeaux’s from 9-12pm. There [...]

45. Grab a Massive Slice of Pie at Uncle’s Pizzeria

The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into Uncle’s Pizzeria is the open kitchen and giant oven sitting right in front of you that gives you the ability to see how a great pie is made right before your eyes. If you’ve never eaten one of their massive (1/4 pie) slices of an 18″ [...]

43. Grab a Red Tea Latte at Happy Lucky’s Teahouse

Relaxing, sensory, cultural, enriching, and welcoming are just a few of the words I can think of to describe Happy Lucky’s Teahouse and Treasures. The combination of Cambodian handicrafts, appeasing music, and a unique selection of teas from all over the world provide a wonderful respite to study or chat with a friend. After spending [...]

34. Have a Coney Island Hot Dog in Old Town Square

PJ, owner of PJ’s Curbside Grill, grew up in the Bronx around the finest hot dogs stands on the planet. When it was time for a major life change, he and his wife Auriel decided to bring those big city style dogs out here to the choice city! Thank goodness he did. Next time you’re in Old Town [...]

27. Phat Tuesday at Big City Burrito

When Brian Rose, a student from CSU, graduated and moved to Japan there was one thing he missed intensely.  Knowing his plight, his intrepid friends walked down to Big City Burrito, purchased him that simple object of his desire and took it on a plane with them 8,000 miles across the ocean. For a while [...]

23. Have a New York Bagel at Gib’s

The original Gib’s New York Bagel Shop has that no nonsense, everyday feel that seems to be quickly disappearing these days. There’s trophies from the over 30 Division Soccer Championships on the wall behind the counter, pictures from all over the world of people wearing Gib’s shirts doing crazy stuff (many of them are fishing), [...]

13. Enjoy a cup of locally-roasted coffee at the Bean Cycle

The Bean Cycle is right around the corner from my office in Old Town. I get at least one cup of coffee a day here when I’m at work and after talking to Penelope (one of the Brandt family owners) I found quite a few new reasons why the Bean Cycle needs to be on [...]

4. Breakfast at Lucile’s

Located at the southeast corner of Meldrum and Magnolia you’ll find a Fort Collins breakfast institution called Lucile’s Creole Cafe.  For an eggs benedict connoisseur like myself Lucile’s is mecca.  There’s a myriad of eggs benny style dishes but my favorite is Eggs Pontchartrain: Fresh pan fried mountain trout, poached eggs, sauce bearnaise; served with [...]
