1. The Egg & I 560 S Holly St, Denver, CO 80246

Started in CO, The Egg and I has since expanded to over 20 states. Sample strong breakfast options like their Deluxe Egg Sandwich, Wisconsin Scramble, or the Hiker's Benedict: diced ham, asparagus, tomatoes, portabella mushrooms, dill hollandaise sauce, two strips of bacon and two poached eggs on two English muffin halves. It's legit. You can also choose one of their "smarter choices", like the Breakfast Sundae: layers of crunchy granola, fruit, low-fat yogurt and crisp apple slices in a tall parfait glass.

3. The Brown Palace Hotel 321 17th St, Denver, CO 80202 (Five Points)

Stop into BPH and for a quick Dom Perignon brunch inside their opulent dining area where the champers flows like water, along with heaps of eggs, seafood, sushi, and pastries from the hotel's bakery. The Brown Palace Hotel has been around since 1892, and hosted almost every US President- so drop that on a date like it's hot.

4. Zengo 1610 Little Raven St, Denver, CO 80202 (Lodo)

Zengo, Chef Richard Sandoval’s homage to pan-Asian cuisine, offers a tasteful yet accessible approach to sushi, sashimi, dim sum, tempura, curry, and grilled and wok-fried plates on its dinner menu, with staples like Sichuan beef and pumpkin curry with bok choy, coconut milk, and fried shallot. But Zengo is perhaps most infamous for its weekend bottomless brunch menu, which features waffles reimagined with sugary coconut flavoring, whipped brown butter, and mango and a would-be simple short rib hash brightened with kimchi sauce. It won’t be difficult to take advantage of the bottomless deal; the brunch cocktail program includes a zesty Bloody Mary and a trio of mimosas: traditional, passion fruit, and Zengo.
