Do you remember the old convenience store on the northeast corner of 27 Road and Highway 50 in Orchard Mesa? Do you remember a few years back when it became Jitterz Coffee? Well, coming up in September, somebody new is moving in.

Word on the street is a new bakery will be moving into the vacant location. Word went out today via Nextdoor. According to the post, the new business is Sweet Kiwi Cookies, Etc.  The original post read:

There is a New Bakery coming to Orchard Mesa. It is going into what was the Jitterz Coffee building at 27 RD & st 50.. Sometime the beginning of September. Good Stuff. - Frank Nei

I was driving down 27 Road this last weekend and noticed crews working on the building. I was hoping it would be something along the lines of a donut shop, bakery, or even another coffee house. It appears OM will be getting all three in one shop. I looked up "Sweet Kiwi Bakery" on Yelp!, and discovered the have a perfect %100 rating.

Sweet Kiwi is amazing. This will be a real asset to Orchard Mesa and that stretch of road, which can really use a makeover :) I have been a customer and fan since they started as tiny home-based biz. Edible works of art! They will have coffee as well as irresistible baked goods and beautiful custom orders. Can't wait! - Judy Craddok

Welcome to the neighborhood, Sweet Kiwi. I think you'll find the location to be perfect. The Orchard Mesa community is always anxious to welcome a locally owned business. Here's wishing you the best.
