Award-winning chef Nick Estell welcomes Museum guests and other downtown visitors to the Flame Café on the north side of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum. You do not need a Museum ticket to enter and dine in the restaurant.
Flame Café opens half an hour before the Museum so that early-arriving guests can grab coffee and a quick bite before entering the Museum. Flame Café is open Sunday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call 719-497-1234 ext. 12345 to order ahead and have your food ready upon your arrival.
Surrounded by glass, Flame Café features terrific views of Pikes Peak complemented with a lovely outdoor patio to enjoy the many sunny days along the Front Range. Guests can relax and enjoy wine and local craft beer on tap.
Flame Café’s custom pizza oven will create mouth-watering rustic Neapolitan-style pizzas. A variety of gourmet salads and sandwiches also are on the frequently changing menu that includes healthy offerings and great food for kids. Be sure to keep an eye on social media as Chef Nick hosts a variety of food-based events.
The Museum is open Sunday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., only closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
