There is some new life in the former Golosa dessert space in Queen Village.
Tim and Anna Hitchens of Koliyan Cambodian Foods share the space at 806 S. 6th Street with their friends Zac James and Rich Kessler of Peddler Coffee. While the shop is still a bit of a work in progress at the moment, the idea is simple: fuse Koliyan’s home made, delicious Cambodian treats and sauces with Peddler’s expertly roasted (and equally delicious) coffee. At this point, however, the desserts (all vegan and gluten free) aren’t always for sale, though the coffee shop is going full force.
Hitchens described the space as “largely collaborative” and encouraged makers and creatives to come to the shop and join what the crew has started to call “the 806 Experiment” to help establish a community.
