Charles Louthan house has been restored and Café Terracotta is a
booming business and neighborhood gathering spot. The Littleton
City Council approved the Main Street Historic District in June

The cafe's location, 5649 S. Curtice St., just a half-block off
historic Main Street, draws shoppers, nearby merchants, city
workers and Littleton residents..."
"Enter this divine Old
Victorian House and warmth and charm are everywhere. The room is
charming with comfortable seating, the open kitchen a treat to
see and the cases full of baked goods make you want to “eat
dessert first”...Exposed brick, nice lighting and a casual feel add to the scene.
The menu is contemporary and appealing to every
taste...Breakfast and lunch are very special here as well. With
very affordable prices, excellent food, and the warmest welcome,
Café Terracotta brings an exciting addition to the
neighborhood---and worth the drive from anywhere."
menus for breakfast and lunch are good but relatively
straightforward, as one would expect at those times of day. In
the evening, though, Café Terracotta really pulls out the stops,
offering fare that goes far beyond what one normally finds in

been exceptional. Their wine list is very affordable. And,

"It's always fun to eat out
somewhere other than the standard chain restaurant. Cafe
Terracotta is just that kind of place. The restaurant has a

front and side yards as well as the porch...I came for lunch and
the menu had plenty of tasty choices...This is a fun place to go
get a bite to eat, relax and have a great meal. I would
