    So cute! Breakfast sandwiches are big and prepared well. Coffee can take a while as there's always a line but cute spot for a quick breakfast.

    Cozy place to study, relaxed environment. Nice change of pace compared to other cafes in Denver. They serve (pricey) alcohol and what seems like great food. Large selection of tea, plenty of outlets

    Goto spot on a weekday for coffee or homemade faire for lunch. Little known secret, they said "no" to one of the larger financial firms in the world when they shut down Larimer for a private party!

    Tip#2 when ordering a spring filling cake make sure u tell them u want them to bake it on the same pick up day so it's more fresh and the bread is moist.
