How best to tap the vibe of a mountain town? Find the locals’ coffeeshop. In historic Georgetown, that’s Kaffehuset, which has been serving caffeinated treats for just eight months but has already captured residents’ (and tourists’) hearts. The tidy shop, with its Scandinavian feel and walls lined with beetle-kill pine, sits in an art gallery where the comfy couches and tables offer ideal spots for catching up. Owners Bettina and Dwayne Goscinski moved from St. Louis a year ago, but the newcomers have quickly made their mark. This is reason enough to blaze past the Starbucks in Dumont for a more meaningful experience (and a better cup of joe) just seven miles west on I-70. 612 Sixth St., Georgetown, 303-569-5084
