Snooze A.M. Eatery is a high-end breakfast restaurant in Colorado Springs. Called Snooze for short, they have the best pancakes I have ever eaten, plus delicious adult breakfast beverages. Along with quality, unique food, comes high prices. You will spend more than you do at Village Inn.
Snooze has breakfast hours, so 6:30AM-2:30PM, every day.
Overall, our experience with Snooze was that it is a decadent breakfast restaurant, and it shows in the bill. Don't get me wrong, it was worth every penny, but it is still a spendy place, one that I would not be frequenting unless I was rich.
There is an app if you want to get on their waitlist, or you can add yourself to their waitlist on their website. I would definitely recommend one of those options. Snooze is a highly busy restaurant! We went on a Monday around lunchtime, and still on a weekday, it was packed. We waited a half an hour after joining the waitlist in order to get a seat.
The layout of the restaurant is very open, and reminds me of a higher-end Denny's. I was nervous for if eating here was going to be worth it, but I was not disappointed in the least. I absolutely understand the long wait times here now.
I started with a breakfast cocktail. I'm not a bourbon fan, but the drink was quite nice!
My wife ordered the sweet potato hash, and I got bacon and eggs, and added a chorizo sausage. For being such a basic breakfast, Snooze delivered high-quality. Our breakfast was fresh and flavorful. Everything was cooked perfectly, and the flavor was delightful.
We substituted the pancake of the day instead of the toast and hash browns. In hindsight, we could have done just one pancake substitution. The pancakes are flippin' perfect, and it's been hard to say no to the extra pankcake we took home.
I don't know about the rest of their pancakes, but considering the quality of the rest of what we ate, I would trust the rest of their pancakes to be just as exquisite. This pancake was so good that I would take it for my birthday over a birthday cake. The Mocha Monday pancake is a horribly sinful dessert, and I loved every bite of it.
Bottom line, if you want gourmet breakfast, Snooze is the place to go. It's expensive but worth it.
Is Snooze a franchise?
Technically yes. Snooze started in Denver and now has a location in Colorado Springs. So just starting to franchise, but otherwise it's a local Colorado restaurant.
The first Snooze restaurant opened in 2006, at 22nd and Larimer in Denver (as "Eatery").
Does Snooze take reservations?
No they do not, but you can join a waitlist, on their website, or on their app.
Snooze A.M. Eatery is located at 7587 N Academy Blvd Suite 120, Colorado Springs, CO 80920.
