University Groundz Coffee House is pouring java, serving burritos near the University of Denver

Angelina Soleno, who recently opened University Groundz Coffee House at 2493 South University Boulevard, won't say where she gets her breakfast burritos -- only that they come from a secret spot in Brighton and are "the best breakfast burritos anywhere in Denver."

She's wrong about that (the best breakfast burritos in Colorado -- maybe anywhere -- are doled out from a trailer 35 miles from my house), but the coffee (Soleno uses Novo), organic whole leaf teas, pastries, Breggos and free wi-fi make this a java joint worth a stop.

Soleno says she encourages a "social atmosphere, one in which our customers can get together and visit and talk about pursuits and interests." She also has plans to expand the hours and the space into a wine and dessert bar within the next few months.

In the meantime, the coffee house is open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
