Boulder, Colorado probably has as many coffeehouses per square mile (or square block) as Seattle, and many of them are excellent. However, the Coffee Sanctuary, located in the Lotus Building just one block off the University of Colorado campus near the junction of 28th Frontage Road and Aurora, is among the best that I have visited in Boulder, the wonderful city that is home to two of my unworthy sons but not, alas, to altogether worthy me. The restaurant offers a variety of coffees, teas, and food, including and especially the sorts of breakfast comestibles with which all right-thinking people yearn to start their day: scones, breads, muffins, etc. The owners are dedicated to serving only 100% environmentally and socially sustainable coffees, and the Lotus Building, with its attractive Japanese-style architecture, is a pleasant environment in which to sip and nibble, while viewing the nearby mountains.
