So the question was recently asked: where is a good coffee shop for a date? After some deliberation with my wife we settled on a few greater Denver area coffee shops. We’ve already vetted them for the quality of the coffee so let’s just take a minute to talk about their other characteristics.
1. Enchanted Grounds (website)
This is a great spot to take a date who has a little bit of a nerdy, fun-loving side. You can enjoy great coffee from the roasters of Coda; in addition, you can enjoy every kind of board game imaginable. There is a game for every kind of personality – just find something on the shelf and ask to give it a try. The overall atmosphere is modern, clean, and inviting with friendly staff and talented baristas.
Keep In Mind: If your date is a bit uptight and hates fun, this may not be the place for you.
2. Solid Grounds (website)
For the romantic in all of us, there is Solid Grounds near Littleton. This is an ideal spot for a coffee-date because the atmosphere is warm and inviting; the seating is spread out with lots of little places to have an intimate conversation; the coffee and the baristas are excellent; and, Old Town, Littleton, is just a few minutes’ drive away.
For those who don’t know or who have never been to Old Town, Littleton, it is a quiet little strip of candy shops, chocolatiers, boutiques, and restaurants tucked away from the bustle of Santa Fe. There are at least a few romantic places to eat after you enjoy your coffee. So if your date is going well, head on over to Old Town for a bite to eat, a walk along the strip, and chocolate samples.
Keep in Mind: This is a great date during the holiday season because the streets are lit up but it can be chilly so dress warm.
