Organic food is your birthright. – Marilyn Megenity

Marilyn Megenity has run Mercury Cafe for 40 years. She’s been committed to local, organic food long before it became fashionable. Mercury Cafe boasts around 90% local products on their menu and beyond food, provides a joyous gathering place for art and poetry, much as you’d expect for a cafe named for the Magician in a Tarot deck.

Marilyn combines her calming faith with a love for chaos when she comes to play at work, every day, “serving organic Colorado cuisine.”
