Located in Golden, CO, Cafe 13 strives to provide its community authentic coffee, fresh food, and a space to connect.


Café 13, “Golden’s Living Room” is a staple in Golden, with its homey charm and cozy atmosphere. It was recently purchased by Golden natives, Dan and Jennifer Thoemke.  Jen Thoemke is the owner of Connects Workspace, a coworking space and neighbor of Café 13’s in the historic armory building.  With its eclectic charm, long standing customer base and proximity to Connects Workspace Jen couldn’t pass up the opportunity to fulfill her life-long dream of owning a coffee shop. 

Krista Connell, the General Manager and Baker has been a friend of the Thoemke’s for 26 years.  While Jen loves all things business, Krista is a great leader, creative artist and a damn good baker. 

Café 13 will be retaining many of the recipes that we have all grown to love as well as adding some fun new items to the menu.  Some changes to look forward to include; later hours with a happy hour menu, a made from scratch Bloody Mary recipe (with that yummy bacon!), sangria, made in house vegan and gluten-free offerings and acoustic music on the patio.
