Finding a local Colorado restaurant, bakery, shop, etc. that you love, isn't hard to do around our state. Saying goodbye can be tough. Sadly, another popular food destination has closed its final Colorado location permanently.

Another Local Colorado Business Bites The Dust


2023 was a crazy year full of saying goodbye to way too many local and big chain favorites around Colorado. We had high hopes that in 2024 we'd start to see things trending differently, and we'd say more hellos to new business than goodbyes, but that's not been the case.

Sadly, we said goodbye to another local Colorado favorite, serving up some of the best sweet treats around, as their last day in business was April 30th, 2024, and this once popular sweet treat shop has peace'd out for good.

Peace, Love, and Little Donuts Closes Final Location In Loveland, Colorado

Located just west on I-25 on Hhy 34 in Loveland, Peace, Love, and Little Donuts had been a Northern Colorado favorite for many years. While there used to be a second location in Fort Collins, the Loveland location was the very last location remaining in the state. A message on their Instagram said:

It has been a fun run with the Loveland shop, but unfortunately, our time has come to an end. We will be closing permanently after business on April 30th. Thank you all for your support over the years. We loved being a fun part of the Loveland community. Our hope is that we were able to bring happiness and joy to those we served.

Fun fact about Peace, Love, and Little Donuts, they were once home to the "Big Rob" donut that I created myself. It was one of their top sellers at one point, but now that popular sweet creation, along with the rest of their fantastic little donuts is no more.
