Colombian pastries find a home at a new coffee shop and bakery headed to Chinatown. Take It Easy from Josh Molina of Makers & Finders fame opens in the Center at Spring Mountain in April.

Molina says the space, currently used for storage by the coffee shop, will be a little different from the full-service Makers & Finders in the Arts District and Downtown Summerlin. Molina, a first-generation Colombian, says his family moved to New York City in the 1980s. “In Queens, you can find a Colombian bakery on every block.” He says his family, who moved to Las Vegas in 1998. routinely brings home boxes of Colombian baked goods when they visit relatives in New York.

Buñuelos, little fried dough balls, and pan de bono, a cornbread ball with cheese, earn starring roles in the bakery. “Chinatown is a destination for the most experimental food,” Molina says. Empanadas and flatbreads also make the menu.

Take It Easy features a sleek and minimalistic look with a La Marzocco espresso machine, a small patio, counter service, and a few tables and a bar for seating inside.

The space also serves as the roasting headquarters for both Makers & Finders locations. Molina uses a Diedrich IR-12 roaster that uses infrared heating for a cleaner roasting process.

Molina hinted at a third Makers & Finders on the way as well later in 2020. His original location opened in the Arts District in 2014, and a second location debuted at Downtown Summerlin in 2017.

The very busy Center at Spring Mountain also sees the opening of Más Por Favor Taqueria y Tequila, a vintage-styled taqueria and tequila speakeasy, opening in 2020.
