Back in March my husband and I stopped in at what used to be a tea shop at 5610 S Curtice Street in Littleton. We were seeking something to do close to home and there is a lot to do in Littleton Colorado.
The renovated tea shop is has had a few walls removed with updated lighting and less fru-fru tables and chairs. Gracefull Community Cafe serves affordable meals. There you can have a healthy $5 breakfast or $8 lunch. If you think you are getting a deal, you can pay it forward and give a little extra for the next person, who may be on a fixed income. Don’t be shy, the food is good and there are many other good things to explore in the area. They close at 2 pm. Littleton is a happening place with lots of fun shops and eateries. I recommend the chai-flavored chocolate at the Chocolate Therapist. Better yet, join up for one of their taste testings and see which flavor you like best.
Elsewhere, you can check out Littleton’s City Events & Meetings on their website calendar. Drive through Main Street downtown and read the overhead banners to see what is happening each weekend. If you have time or find yourself waiting for a table, check out the General Store. It has lots of unique gift ideas that could take you a while to look through. Luckily they are open late, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
Bemis Library, the Littleton History Museum, Hudson Botanical Gardens (that you can bike to), and the Depot Gallery add a little something for everyone, whether indoors or out. The 6 plays per year held at the Town Hall Arts Center are quite good and reasonably priced. Look for the book sales at Bemis throughout the year and musical summer guests at Hudson Gardens. The latter also does Christmas lights that are fun if you’re suffering from cabin fever or the blues associated with holiday shopping There is even putt-putt golf and across the busy street of Belleview enter another jurisdiction/town to cool off at Englewood’s Pirate’s Cove and Belleview Park’s train ride and petting zoo.
