Cafe Colore has been a fixture in downtown's Writer Square for as long as we care to remember, but the touristy pizza place is now closed. A new tenant, Illegal Burger, will be moving in later this summer after a renovation of the space.
Illegal Burger, operated by restaurateur Jim Nixon, currently has locations in Arvada and Evergreen and offers a range of burgers made from fresh (never frozen) beef and organic produce, as well as milkshakes, including boozy, adult blends.
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.
