First, Cherry Creek got Toast -- a second outpost of the popular Littleton cafe that moved into the old Village Inn space at 222 Columbine Street last summer.
Now, it's apparently going to get Syrup. A new sign is up at 300 Josephine Street, in the spot that the Egg Shell had occupied for 25 years. Late last year, though, the Egg Shell moved over to 235 Fillmore Street, gaining a liquor license and a heated patio in the process.
And leaving room for Syrup. Breakfast competition could soon get sticky in the Creek.
