Anyone who has not stopped by to bliss out on this off the charts patio – let’s just say – add it to the bucket list. Teahouse Owner Lenny Martinelli agrees that this magical patio is like no other. “The patio offers you the chance to be outside next to the river, surrounded by roses and grape vines, and still experience the teahouse.” With two patios, both burst with vibrant roses planted by the Rose Society, while the riverside patio offers natural shade from the grapevine arbors. Martinelli expressed his excitement to win the award, with this to say: “Thank you for supporting the tea house for the past 22 years. It’s been an honor to serve you with our great foods and teas from all around the world.” 1770 13th St., Boulder, 303.442.4993, boulderteahouse.com.
