Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

El Gordo Loco was the first victim of our Best of Denver curse, shuttering just a few days after we bestowed it with the Best Breakfast Under $2 award. But the building won't stay empty for long: the house is getting a remodel and will reopen as Nanna's Teas.

This location is the second outpost of the Park Hill-based shop owned by Karen Renz, and she says the Highland address will sell loose and bulk teas to the neighborhood, just like the flagship.

But there's more: "We're expanding into a full restaurant as well," she notes, adding that Nanna's will also offer breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea in a small dining room.

Renz says the place should open sometime during the first couple of weeks of June, "Probably the 6th, if all works out well."

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.
