Where to Drink This Week: Maci Cafe

Maci CafeMaci Cafe is not a newly opened cafe in Denver, rather it is a newly named cafe- formerly Shangri- La in the Highlands neighborhood.  Owner Massimo Ruffinazzi, who was born and raised in Italy, has been wanting to change the name since he took over the cafe 3 years ago.  Maci Cafe fits more with his Italian style, and the best news is the menu is not changing.

The paninis and drinks at Maci Cafe are some of the best in town.  Massimo and his team take care with making the coffee drinks to the highest standards and with coffee from Italy.  The paninis are always on homemade bread, and they have numerous creative combinations that are inspired by chef Massimo.

Stop by to grab a delicious coffee drink and try a savory panini combination to congratulate Massimo on the name change and for being such a vital part of the Highlands neighborhood.

Maci Cafe is located at 1575 Boulder St. Ste B Denver 80211. 720-855-7585.
