Walking into The Noshery, a bakery and cafe that opened across the street from Regis University this summer, you'd never guess that owner Andrea Knight wanted to be a ski racer when she was a kid. Walls are the shade of blue associated with little boys' nurseries. Music is restful, just right for the soundtrack of a French film. Aside from the white wainscoting and a collage of doors hung on the back wall, decor is minimal, giving the space a sense of calm appreciated by students who pop in, books and highlighters in hand, to stoke up on caffeine and prepare for class.
