Coffee That Matters in Littleton.

(Littleton, Colorado):  Long a Colorado favorite at area Farmers Market’s, Dirt Coffee Bar is now open in Historic Downtown Littleton. The converted and equally charmed mid-century home of Dirt Coffee is located at 5767 South Rapp Street (on the same block as the original historic home of the Littles). As soon as you pull into the drive, you can feel that you’re in for something very special. You’ll soon find out why. Dirt is on a very special journey, creating tasty handcrafted food, exceptional coffee and employing & empowering individuals with Autism. In our opinion, Dirt Coffee will soon become the piazza of Historic Down Town Littleton with a simple recipe: a warm environment, skilled baristas, blended with the fine aroma and flavor […]

The Magical Wonders of a Breakfast Burrito.

(Lakewood, Colorado): Rain or shine there’s always a line at Tamale Kitchen on South Kipling and Belleview in Jefferson County. It might very well be due to the ever tasty and always filling breakfast burritos.

Cloud Pick: Tamale Kitchen in Jeffco The Cloud salutes this savory creation that begins with these key ingredients and ends with a nice warm tummy. First, creamy rich chili, gently whipped and scrambled fresh eggs, nicely diced and roasted potato, shredded monterey jack cheese, all delicately wrapped in a warm fluffy flour tortilla. At this […]

Littleton Cares: The Alley’s Beautiful Scar Event Was a Remarkable Family Adventure.

(Littleton, Colorado): When you think about Colorado comfort food in the Fall, there’s little wonder about what the harvest from magical places like Pueblo have been yielding for almost centuries: Colorado Green Chili. More of a gravy actually, authentic Colorado Green (as it’s often reverently referred too) has become a staple to many a Fall meal (best served with a warm fluffy tortilla). Comforting, calming and tasty. It also comes as no surprise that The Alley’s genuinely caring General Manager Tommy Scarbrough thoughtfully chose the backdrop of The Alley’s First Annual Green Chili Festival to promote funds and awareness for The Beautiful Scar Project. The turnout was breathtaking. It was standing room only. From the The Alley’s Main Street patio through the authentically local restaurant and welcoming bar. There were families with children. Smiling couples, singles […]
