Denver is heating up, but at least for me, the day still isn't allowed to start until I get a cup of coffee or three in my system. I love coffee, and Starbucks is great for its consistency, but I ultimately would rather go to a little mom and pop coffee shop whenever I can and support local business that helps to send kids to dance class, buy homes, and build lives and families. Small businesses are one of the most important things we have, and lucky for Denverites, we have lots of great coffee shops to test out .
5 Stella's Gourmet Coffee and Such
Located just off the Louisiana Pearl Stop on the lightrail (1476 S Pearl St, Denver, CO 80210) Stella's has been offering a place to relax, read, write, and work for as long as I can remember. Try the Con Panna( double shot with whipped cream) for a kick in the butt first thing in the morning.
4 Romancing the Bean
Located in Littleton, this shop is inside a 139 year old train station.(5800 S. Prince Street, Littleton 80120 ) They are relaxed and cozy with Santiagos breakfast burritos available! Try the Iced Latte with vanilla syrup while you're waiting at the Park and Ride!
3 Nixon's Coffee House
Located down in Englewood, Nixon's Coffee House brings a casual, homey flair to the coffee house model (871 Englewood Pkwy. , Englewood CO 80110). They have lots of tables and an open room ideal for larger groups, this place is definitely one worth stopping by for. Try their Drink of the Month and always try something new!
2 La Belle Rosette Espresso and Wine Bar
Me myself, I love anything that mixes my two great loves, alcohol and coffee. This cute little place offers both 'to go' coffees typical of a morning coffee shop, and an extended specialty menu( the Hot Vanilla Fudge Latte is positively to die for).( 2423 S University Blvd, Denver, CO 80210 ) Or, if you're headed over there after work, they offer quite a few delicious Espresso cocktails, including a grandmere mocha, with grand mariner, chocolate, espresso, and milk.
1 Little Owl Coffee
Located in the heart of downtown on 15th and Blake( ) is a tiny little shop right off my daily commute that has the best lattes in town. I highly recommend these guys.

"When I decided to sell my home and look for a new place, my first call was to Jim and Ion Real Estate. He listed my condo and in two short weeks my place was under contract. Now, the real fun began, looking for a new place! The Ion Real Estate website was great. I loved the map function and the emails it sent with new listings that matched my previous searches. On Saturday, Jim and I headed out to look at several places I had picked to see. At the time I didn’t really notice how he listened carefully to everything I said about each place from the lighting to the layout. I was even a little sad that I didn’t find anything that day but Jim reassured me not to worry and a week later he had set up some more appointments. I still remember walking into my new place and just knowing. I had only taken two steps into it and I knew I wanted it.
Next came the easy part for me, but this is where having the right realtor and mortgage broker is essential. They make it seem easy! Jim guided me through all the aspects of my sale and purchase. I appreciated how simple each step seemed from making an offer to dealing with inspections. Even the loan seemed easy. I asked a ton of questions, I think it’s the teacher in me. I wanted to understand all the moving parts. Jim explained everything so clearly that I joked that he missed his calling and should have been a teacher, but he didn’t, I’m glad he is helping people find their homes!
Recently one of my close friends mentioned she wanted to stop renting and buy. I immediately referred her to Ion Real Estate. This time I was able to watch with an outsider perspective at the way Jim cued in on my friend’s preferences. Stephanie kept talking about the charm of old houses, a far cry from the sleek modern condo I chose. By the second house-hunting excursion, Jim knew just which home she would pick. As we walked up to the front porch, I saw Stephanie with the same excitement I had felt just a few months earlier. I watched her mentally move in her furniture and this time I saw the smile that crossed over Jim’s face when he knew Stephanie had found her home.
Throughout both experiences, it was clear Jim understands what people want in their homes and how to structure the entire buying experience to be a positive one. I have heard so many crazy stories from people that didn’t chose the right realtor or mortgage broker. They always start by saying, “I didn’t think a realtor made any difference.” It makes a difference! It made a difference for me and for Stephanie. Owning is better than renting; and, it is even better when Jim and Ion Real Estate are guiding you through the process!
