Although Earls has yet to make its debut, just up the block at 287 Columbine Street, Cafe Colorado is now open for business, serving coffee, sandwiches and other snacks for the shopping-fatigued.
And while its patio may not be as "vibrant" as the one promised at Earls, there are still a few streetside seats where you can soak up the last sunshine of fall.
For more details, call 303-377-8902.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
