Need a boost of energy? Find it here – at The Coffee Cottage, an authentic European-style cafe that obviously offers coffee and even a plant-based energy drink. It is also a place with a comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff with books and games. There are also treats, like croissants, cinnamon rolls, and vegan chocolate cakes. But maybe most of all the staff, who are friendly and full of suggestions on what goes best with your drink.

Wild flour bakery business
Gold Hill Square North, Woodland Park, 719-374-6363, wildflourcolorado.com, facebook.com/wildflourbakingcompany
Yum is the word for pastries, breads and desserts at Wildflour Baking Company in Gold Hill Square North. Prior to opening the physical store, Liesl and Joe Wyka developed a following with their home business.
Known for its cinnamon rolls, the bakery combines art and culinary prowess. With the yum taste, cupcakes, cakes and cookies are photographic gems. With the new showcase, the Wykas added lunch with acai bowls, chicken salad croissants and a quiche. Then Wildflour will add bagels and marbled rye bread to the selections.
More than a bakery, Wildflour is designed to be a community gathering place with live music and painting lessons for example. In fact, the Wykas have hired four employees, including their daughter, Grace Wyka.
