At 11 a.m. today, members of the Metro North Chamber of Commerce will cut the ribbon on Anythink Cafe, 5877 East 120th Avenue in Brighton, on the Anythink Wright Farms campus -- the flagship part of the Rangeview Library District's innovative Anythink libraries program. Thornton's Bagel Bakery and Cupcake Shoppe will provide the breakfast sandwiches, bagels, paninis, wraps, pizzas and cupcakes, and the coffee is from Allegro Coffee Company.
This is a welcome addition to the Anythink flagship location, which also features a computer lab, teen area, and a 7,000-square-foot children's area; next to the building is a one-acre park that includes outdoor seating and reading nooks. The 600-square-foot cafe and adjacent seating area should add even more options for bookworms and community-seekers taking advantage of the Anythink amenities.
