Cafe Zuri – Denver

Cafe Zuri - Denver CO

Nestled on 32nd Street in the Highlands Neighborhood of Denver Colorado sits Café Zuri, a quaint coffee shop with a European twist. In 2012, the cafe opened its doors for the very first time.

Today, the cafe is known for its friendly atmosphere. They hold a ‘no wifi, no laptop’ policy, hoping to inspire their customers to connect with each other instead.

A No WiFi Cafe That Promotes Human Interaction and It Feels Like Home

Inside the cafe feels homey and quaint. A mixture of exposed brick, wood, and string lighting breathes life and character into the space. Their menus, written carefully on chalkboards, as well as photos of friends and family around the shop adds to the homey feel.

Rounding out the decor, various European items like license plates and signs are sprinkled around the shop. But there is not a sense of clutter, each item feels purposeful and adds to the character of the shop. As you enjoy your coffee and chat with new and old friends you will have plenty to look at.
