Gallop Cafe is a reliably great spot for breakfast and brunch -- just be aware that you'll likely face a wait on the weekends. Their food is delicious (all day, not just in the am), and their giant Bloody Marys are worth the trip alone -- garnished with celery, pickles, olives, and more, they are practically a meal by themselves (and they come with a beer back too!)
Trafficking in classic French comfort dishes like frog's legs and steak frites, this Curtis Street bistro brings the cigarette-strewn streets of Paris to CO.
A pizza oven already in the back inspired the Wyman's crew to start plating Chicago style deep dish, which's now feasted on by Bears fans as they sip $2 Old Styles surrounded by the signed jerseys of Butkus and Devin Hester -- just don't you try taking one to the house, as that would constitute theft.
Tucked inside The Curtis Hotel, the Corner Office Restaurant & Martini Bar boasts an eclectic menu of small bites and large plates that globetrots from Brazilian manchego cheese and bread, Hungarian flatbread with Gouda and tender belly ham, and poutine, to chicken tikka masala and even bacon and egg ramen. Conveniently located adjacent to the Denver Performing Arts Center, the Corner Office is a destination for happy hour snacks and libations, like the Shift 7 with Ransom Old Tom Gin, bonded AppleJack Brandy, Cocchi Torino, and grapefruit oil.
This go-to Mexican spot sports sweeping city views, table-side guac, and other traditional Mexican fare, and a daily 4-6p happy hour (Mondays are happy hour all night!) featuring $4 sangria. Step things up with a Fuego Verde cocktail (Corazon blanco, muddled jalapeno, agave).
They have homemade pop tarts, bourbon banana french toast, beer, and... wait, do you need more reasons to get out of bed for brunch?!
With mouth-watering eats including apps like blue corn fried oysters, buffalo picadillo empanadas with chipotle agave and a Blue Corn Dog with lamb sausage plus an atmosphere referencing early adobe architecture, Kachina will put that southwestern flavor in your face.
