CoraFaye’s Cafe is an absolute favorite amongst its loyal fans in Aurora, and is an absolute hidden gem. However, for the time being, it will be closed.

The cafe has been serving up soul food for over 15 years, and was recently listed as Colorado’s best mom and pop restaurant in the entire state.

They mention that the restaurant’s owner, Priscilla Smith, named it after her mother, Cora. She has since created some delicious Southern soul food that includes frog legs, pork chops, catfish, and po’ boys.

You might be wondering why such a beloved restaurant is closing down. According to a Facebook post, they experienced a brutal kitchen fire that shut down their business.

In the post, they ask their patrons to, “Keep us in your thoughts”, as they recover from the tragedy.

It has some rave reviews on both Yelp and Google, and clearly serves its community in a truly outstanding way. 

Let’s hope they can get back as soon as possible, and to support them the best we can once they return.

This Local Colorado Mexican Restaurant Is One Of The Best

After opening in 2008, Las Palmeras Mexican Restaurant has become one of the area's very best locally-owned places to get delicious, and authentic Mexican food. We found this place by accident years ago while driving hungry down Main Street in Longmont and have been regulars ever since. The owner, the staff, the food, and the drinks are all top notch and that's what makes this one of Colorado's top choices for delicious Mexican food.
