Stowaway Coffee + Kitchen


The 1,400 square foot space in the burgeoning River North (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver combines a walk up pastries and coffee bar with a full service breakfast and lunch café. The project included the renovation of the existing façade and the addition of a raised patio for outdoor dining. The interior casework and furniture was designed to allow the first time restaurant owners to construct many of the elements themselves.

The simple design makes use of the existing industrial character of this wide open warehouse space – original wide-planked wood floors, concrete walls, exposed duct work, and floor-to-ceiling storefront windows – effecting a restrained yet welcoming design, that allows the owners imaginative menu and homegrown touches take center stage.
