It's something of a small miracle that people who love to eat as much as we do are situated two blocks from some of the best mom-and-pop cooking we've ever tasted: the Corner Café, run by California transplants Bob and Virginia Smoot.
And since we're nothing if not shills and hacks, it's with great delight that we announce that, not only has the café expanded its menu — yet shrank its overall size and simplified the offerings — but will finally be open on the weekend. As local blog Oinkety puts it (and puts it, and puts it), when restaurants are open on the weekend and take credit cards: Maybe they like money after all.
"We also are continuing our support of Colorado Proud," writes Bob in an e-mail. "We get our coffee from Purple Mountain (a local roaster), fresh Red Bird chicken from Denver, Blue Point Bakery from Denver, Certified Angus Beef from Denver — just to name a few of our vendors."
So look for breakfast all day Saturdays; for the new breakfast and lunch menus below; and for more on the new offerings, taste-wise, in an upcoming Independent.
