The Shoppe, a little bakery and cupcake shop that was at the vanguard of the regentrification of East Colfax Avenue by the Bluebird District, is moving on after today.
For the past six years, the shop at 3103 East Colfax Avenue has served an ever-changing menu of cupcakes, as well as cereal, coffee and made-to-order pies.According to one of the owners, the team is "just ready to move on and do different things. Do something new."
Today is the Shoppe's official last day, but there will be a free "Cupcake Prom" at the store on Saturday, November to celebrate the end of a delicious era.
And when the next era starts, it's likely to involve a bakery-related pop-up.
