The floor level of a new residential complex, on a relatively quiet corner in Denver, is an atypical spot for a stylish specialty café. The unassuming location is just one part of the overall big charm at Black Eye Coffee’s second outpost, which opened last month in Cap Hill (the original one is located in LoHi). Situated below Moto Apartments on Sherman and 8th Ave., the ultra cool, dark-but-welcoming, and art-deco inspired coffee shop/ bar features delicious drinks, a variety of eats, and solid service from 6 in the morning till 2am.

With its surprising menu selection, gorgeously sleek design, and unpretentious vibe, Black Eye in Cap Hill is a fantastic new addition to the Denver coffee scene.Whether you want a great cup of pour-over coffee to-go or a place to hang out with a friend over a couple of artfully crafted cocktails, this impressive all-in-one café is a place you should visit soon. I went there twice in one day, so I’m clearly infatuated.


Pro tip: definitely use the restrooms while you’re there—both unisex rooms are like an art installation. As my friend Aric put it: “it’s kind of a life changing experience.”
