Crema Coffee House, the eclectic cafe on Upper Larimer, is just putting the finishing touches on a new kitchen. After two-and-a-half years of providing much-needed caffeine along a somewhat desolate stretch of Larimer Street, owner Noah Price has decided to offer breakfast and lunch to his ever-growing crowd of regulars.
And he'll be getting a little help from Jonathan Power of Root Down, who will design the menu and oversee its execution.
"The menu will be simple and straight forward, with a focus on creativity." says Price -- and with Power in on the project, we don't doubt it. (And we hear more surprises are in store, too.)
Price expects the kitchen work to be completed this week, and then Crema will start dishing out actual meals in the next couple of weeks.
