Although many residents may not know, 2432 W. Colorado Avenue wasn’t always Meadow Muffins. It wasn’t always 2432 Colorado Avenue either. At 431 Colorado Avenue, the Waycott Building was built in 1901. The opera house occupied the 2nd floor with the First National Bank taking the 1st floor and Stewart & Tiger Bicycles in the basement. The third floor, billed as “the best dance floor in the state,” was the W.O.W. Hall. In later times, Mack’s Ice Cream, where ice cream and candy were made and sold in the parlor, was in the basement, the Idle Hour Theater (vaudeville and later a movie house) was on the 1st floor, the opera house remained on the second and the third floor was a meeting place for various city lodges, including the local Independent Order of Odd Fellows. This first floor eventually became a furniture store and the 2nd and 3rd floors various offices. Meadow Muffin’s opened in 1979 and was a quick hit with Old Colorado City residents. Showcasing various curiosities and antiquities from movie lore, it was a unique and popular place to eat, drink and dance.
