CoraFaye's Cafe
Southern & soul food from family recipes
Soul Food · $$
Head up to the second floor of an unassuming Aurora shopping center and find yourself at home in a country kitchen with all the leisurely charm of grandma's house, where Southern and soul-food classics (like fried chicken and smothered pork chops) come with all the trimmings for a song. There's no booze, but sweet tea and red Kool-Aid are old-school.

I have been to this restaurant to eat in as well as pickup orders to go. I called today to order a catfish dinner, I was put on hold by Julie. I was then hung up on. I called back again and a gentleman answered also Julie answered again, I said hello and after I’m sure they both assumed one another was going to take my order, I got hung up on again. I called a third time and it just rang, hung up and called again and the gentleman answered. I asked to order a whole catfish dinner and he said no problem and asked to put me on hold. I sat on hold for about 10 minutes and then Julie came on the line, I’m not sure how their phones work but another woman was on the phone with Julie making an arrangement I assume to have a group in at 1:30pm. Julie asked the woman for a name and phone number, which was given while I was on the phone. Guess what happened next, yep I was hung up on. I called back (also pulling into their parking lot at this time) the gentleman answers and I repeat what I would like to order. I was told it would be a 45 minute wait for a whole catfish dinner pickup. Now, had I know that on any of the 5 calls I was hung up on, I wouldn’t have continued to drive there. The gentleman made excuses for me being hung up on like... We’re busy. If he would have apologized that’s one thing but to say your busy that’s why your customer is hung up on... Now I won’t be a customer anymore and I’ll be sure to give the same recommendation to anyone thinking of going here.

Like home. Absolutely fantastic southern soul food flare. The fried chicken is out of this world— never would have thought authentic southern fried chicken could be found west of the Mississippi— but CoraFaye’s has it. And the fried catfish was wonderful, fresh and perfectly cooked. Do yourself and your family a favour and plan your next Sunday dinner ( or any lunch/dinner throughout the week) at CoraFaye’s.

Happened onto CoraFaye's as part of my quest to find the best fried chicken joints in the city of Denver. I wasn't sure what I was in store for when I wandered onto the second floor of a quiet and nondescript plaza off Colfax. The interior is decorated in a homely fashion with historic articles and items sprinkled about, and the atmosphere can only be described what old fashioned family style restaurant of the 70/80's would look like in my mind's eye. Cuts showing throw the banquet seating in some of the booths showing their age, patched with coloured duct tape. That said, the service was incredibly courteous and friendly as you would expect of a restaurant that is proud of its Southern heritage. I had a fried chicken meal with sides of fried okra and stewed sweet potato (I was glad to see that fries are not a side option). The order was a little slow getting out of the kitchen, but I was graciously topped up with a sweet tea. The chicken was clearly prepared on order and not something picked up from underneath a heat lamp, with the meat still warm and moist. Still, it lacked the crisp outer texture that I was yearning for and so my quest around the city continues.
