New restaurant in Mantiou (at the former Manitou Bakery/ Breadheads/Sugar Magnolia's location!) Currently only open for breakfast and lunch, but has plans to expand into evening hours. Haven't had a chance to eat there yet, but will do so soon. Nice website:

Um, with the recent history of high turnovers in businesses in that very spot, I'm a tad skeptical at this point about whether or not they will survive longer than a year.

Perhaps if we were cynnical, we should make guesses regarding what month and year they will go out business.

Nice web site though. Impressive!

..."funky California cafe" has an interesting menu, but being California-ish would not endear it to me, nor would their homepage replete with phallic symbols. I give it 8 months. Hopefully, for the sake of the owners, I will be wrong.

just before the parade. They had trio playing out front. Bluegrass I think. They were very busy. Most everyone was that day though. I was really surprised that Breadheads went out of business.

Rumors were rent was about $2,000 to $2,500 per month for that particular space on Manitou Avenue. You have got to sell A LOT of food just to break even! There are also utilities, government fees, having a payroll for employees and other types of overhead costs.

I hope I don't sound negative. I just have a friend in Canon City who's running a restaurant and I hear how tough it is! I wish Ned all the best!

We were in MS during the coffin races 10 years ago or so during my first trip to Colorado... what a fun tradition.

Congrats on your win!
