Jelly will be your jam if you’re partial to brunch, which, if you’re human, we assume you are. This Denver darling has a breakfast and lunch menu that skips from sweet to savory, stacking pancakes, French toast, scrambles, hashes, and, last, but certainly not least, doughnut bites. These perfectly round, succulent pop-‘ems come in eight flavors as varied as green tea, bacon, and cinnamon sugar. Your sugar high will have you seeing rows of vintage sugar cereal boxes padding the walls, but you’re not imagining it; Jelly’s beige walls are alive with Wheaties, Smurf Magic Berries, and more.
With a color-splashed interior and walls adorned with retro cereal boxes, this spot (and its second location near DU) has style covered. It’s about more than good looks though: For one, there are the donut holes filled in flavors like maple bacon, Thai peanut, and salted caramel. Stomach-filling entrees include Corned Beef Hash with caramelized onions and red potatoes; breakfast burrito fat with pulled pork, a Southern biscuit with sausage gravy—or any pancake, French toast, or scramble options. Even better? Friends looking for some sweet and savory gluten-free carbs can find a treasure trove of brunch love here.
