Highlands Cork & Cafe takes pride in being a local restaurant that has something for everyone. Our charming and welcoming cafe has been a community staple for over 15 years. Built in 1907, our location got its roots as residential property and still offers the same charm and cozy environment from when it was first built. We're now the only privately owned coffee house in the Denver, CO area and offer a variety of delicious drinks and fresh, locally sourced eats.
