Much like the other two businesses owned by David and Laura Thomason, Red Rabbit Café and Ice Cream is a family affair. But unlike Red Dog Coffee and Pikes Peak Chocolate and Ice Cream, Red Rabbit will be managed by their 25-year-old daughter, Danielle, a recent University of New Mexico graduate.

“She has been working in our businesses since she was 14, so she’s got a lot of experience,” says David.

Set to soft-open on Wednesday, March 21, Red Rabbit is located in the same Broadmoor-area shopping center as the Hatch Cover.

“We were buying a bakery case for Red Dog [from previous tenants Ski Barista]...” says David. “By the time we walked out, we thought ‘Oh my, this could be a great place.’”

David Thomason says the new business is something of a fusion of their existing businesses in Manitou. Red Rabbit will have the extensive selection of coffee drinks, sandwiches and baked goods from Red Dog, as well the house-made chocolates and Josh & John’s ice cream they serve at Pikes Peak Chocolate. And as they have since added espresso to Pikes Peak Chocolate, they’ll be serving coffee from Colorado Coffee Merchants.
