In Boulder, McDevitt Taco Supply added a coffee bar and cafe adjacent to its brick-and-mortar restaurant in the Meadows Shopping Plaza. Heady Coffee Co. serves both hot and cold drinks made with beans from Boulder’s Conscious Coffees as well as Yerba Maté, fresh juices, aquas frescas, food options like breakfast burritos and such items as hot sauces, spices, local gifts, McDevitt merchandise, plants and succulents, and local produce.
It was a tough week on Broadway in central Denver, where Sugar Bakeshop closed its doors after twelve years. The lease was up on the space, and owner Natalie Slevin decided it was time to make a shift; she’s planning to focus on her popular creation ot vegan popsters, with a goal of making them a national hit.
And just down the street, Giordano’s closed after less than a year of serving its popular Chicago deep-dish pies.
In other opening news:
- Rivers and Roads Coffee is opening a second location in Curtis Park this summer.
- WeldWerks backed out of its plans to open a location in Colorado Springs but will expand its production in Greeley.
- Fuel & Iron, a bar inspired by the city of Pueblo, will open in the former Brass Tacks location in downtown Denver next month — and yes, there will be a slopper on the menu.
