No sooner had the LoHi Merchants Group added up the bars, restaurants and coffee shops in the neighborhood to a whopping 55 than some of them started disappearing.

Gramma Dor's is gone, as is 32nd Treat. And now comes news that Erika Cunha, owner of Living the Sweet Life, is closing her LoHi bakery located next to Masterpiece Deli.

An "existing restaurant" will lease the space, 5280 reports, and Cunha will be selling the contents of the bakery that she opened back in September 2009.

Even though losing Living the Sweet Life will reduce the LoHi count to 52, new spots, including the much anticipated Old Major, are scheduled to open soon...and would-be restaurateurs are snapping up any spaces that open up.

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.
