Colados Coffee and Crepes is a family-owned coffee shop and creperie in Avondale and it has been getting a lot of positive attention from Valley foodies. The shop uses a unique brewing process for their coffees and serves specialty crepes, from sweet fruit and Nutella, to savory breakfast and lunch crepes.

Manager Aaron Reina thinks the success and positive reaction is because the shop is family-owned, which creates a welcoming and warm atmosphere.

“We’re all working as a family,” Reina said. “That little taste of family, they’re not paying a corporation. That’s what people like, they see the owner there or the manager and they can talk to them.”

Colados celebrated its two year anniversary on January 29. Reina said the concept was developed after a family trip to Paris. The family wanted everyone to try crepes and experience a little piece of something special from their travels.

“We started out just with crepes, then added coffee and everything just started adding up,” Reina said. “We had our friends help us out with the architecture of the inside. Our friends were architects and they started designing for us, so we had a lot of help.”

Reina said the shop has been doing great after opening two years ago and already has loyal customers.

“We’ve been having a lot of great results,” Reina said. “We’ve actually done better than expected. We have a lot of loyal customers. We have people that come every day, sometimes twice a day.”

Reina said there are plenty of customers that visit from downtown Phoenix and the goal is to open up another shop soon – perhaps downtown.

Passion is an important aspect of working at the shop, Reina said; and they impart that on their employees. Passion and family are the two most important things to everyone working at the shop, and so far the public has been loving it.

“We’re really big on passion, that’s what moves us,” Reina said. “We’re powered by passion.”
