Bring some friends, and dine at Community for authentic comfort food with a Colorado-style twist. Whether you make it by 6 p.m. for Friday’s Happy Hour or come another time, the food and cocktails are always top-notch. Innovative cuisine and libations give diners a uniquely sophisticated, yet small town community feel, to your dining experience.

Next, stroll up the street and across to Chocolatier Stam, where you will step into an oasis of high end, handcrafted chocolates reminiscent of Europe.

If it’s a Friday or Saturday night, and you’re parked near Community, go back in that direction to enjoy live music at Cannon Mine Coffee, just a few doors down. In addition to a full coffee menu, including decaf options, they serve coffee and espresso-based, alcoholic cocktails that make for the perfect nightcap.
