Reader: So Glad Illegal Pete's Took That Eyesore Space and Made It New
The Illegal Pete's on East Colfax.
Illegal Pete's finally opened last Friday in the former home of Mama's Cafe (and an International House of Pancakes before that) at 2001 East Colfax Avenue — and it was definitely worth the wait. The original A-frame has been stripped to its bones and filled with a sleek kitchen and seating; outside, there's a big adjacent patio — and parking! The place is already getting raves. Says Amy:
So glad they used the eyesore space and made it new.
Very cool design!
Oh, boy, can't wait to go.
