Denver, CO 80211
The cozy Shangri-La Cafe is a neighborhood coffeehouse. But what a neighborhood: Itâs tucked between Vita and Lola in the hot, hot LoHi neighborhood. And while those restaurants are often packed late into the evening, Shangri-La focuses on the breakfast-and -lunch crowd, offering up assorted coffee drinks, award-winning breakfast sandwiches and panini. Chef/partner Massimo Ruffinazzi, who was born and raised in Italy, makes sure there are always great breads on hand, as well as salumi plates and salad. But there are other reasons to hang out here, too, starting with wi-fi and continuing on through an arrangement with a Colorado winery that allows Shangri-La to offer wine.
