DENVER - Colorado Gov. Jared Polis says the license of a Castle Rock restaurant that opened for business on Mother's Day, despite a public health order shuttering dining rooms, will be suspended.

Now, C&C Coffee and Kitchen in Castle Rock will have to close until the Tri-County Department of Public Health determines they're following laws and orders in place. Gov. Polis made the announcement during a press briefing Monday afternoon.

A video posted by Colorado Community Media showed the crowd inside C&C Coffee and Kitchen.

People were sitting at tables and waiting in line at the counter. More people waited in line outside to get in, according to the Associated Press.

C&C has a location in north Colorado Springs, as well, but that location's license is still active.

Two restaurants in Calhan, Karen's Kafe and Stephanie's Bar & Grill, kept their dining rooms open despite an order to cease and desist from El Paso County Public Health. No further action has been taken as of Monday evening.
