Pete's Café and Steakhouse

Pete's Café and Steakhouse, an old-timer staple located at 514 East Colfax, closed its doors, BusinessDen reported. Faced with a lease renewal, owner Pete Gatseos took the opportunity to close up shop and enter a well-deserved retirement. The 10-table diner brought guests breakfast and lunch near the corner of Colfax Avenue and Pennsylvania Street since 1972.

The restaurant has a sister location in Thornton, at t 9170 Washington Street, which is operated by Pete's son and son-in-law. That outpost remains open.
