The Wash Park Perk & Pub pioneered the coffee shop business at 835 E. Ohio Avenue in Denver a few years ago. It expanded to new locations, then went bust.
Heirloom Cafe followed at the same location and similarly tumbled.
But hope springs eternal. Wash Perk opened two weeks ago at the same location, remodeled to allow for more interior space and a more conventional modern coffee shop look than Heirloom sported.
The adjacent space, previously a laundrymat, is now an antique shop. I wish them the best of luck.
