A local favorite since 1977!

Come see why our hand-tossed, solar-baked pizza, great homemade sandwiches and soups, and signature house salad have won Poor Richard’s Restaurant many “Best of” designations in Colorado Springs year after year.

Our famous 18-inch New York Style pizza starts with freshly made crust, topped with made-in-house, fresh Campari tomato sauce, and finished with your choice of 28 delicious toppings. Enjoy a whole pie or by the slice! Complement a sandwich served on fresh, locally-based breads with made-from-scratch soup or a signature house salad—our most popular menu item. Or try our new grain bowls, made with our organic brown and wild rice mix, topped with one of our homemade soups and a selection of other toppings.

Poor Richard’s offers dietary options including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free selections. Three different indoor spaces with local art on the walls, and our peaceful outdoor areas let you choose your dining environment.

Poor Richard’s Restaurant was the second child in our family of businesses, added to the bookstore in 1977 to form Poor Richard’s Feed & Read. Over the years, it is a first with our many loyal followers who enjoy delicious, homemade meals with us regularly, knowing that they can trust the quality of what we serve. With the best New York Style pizza in the region, we are a destination for pizza connoisseurs as well as for our fresh build-your-own salads and homemades soups.
