Craving sweet potato pancakes, homemade syrup or breakfast scrambles? Here are six top brunch options in Denver.
Modern Market – This Colorado-based eatery proves farm-to-table, scratch-made foods that can be ordered at the counter, including breakfast scrambles and wholegrain waffles. It’s open for breakfast on the 16th Street Mall from 7 a.m. until 10:30 on weekdays; weekend brunch served from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Delectable Egg – Launched in 1982, this eatery has since grown to five restaurants that offer friendly neighborhood atmospheres and a mouthwatering and creative breakfast menu served through lunch. It has another location in Lower Downtown (LoDo) at 1642 Market Street. Both locations are open from 6:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., Monday through Friday; and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
Corner Bakery Café – If a quick and tasty breakfast or meal is on your radar, head straight for the Corner. There are two important factors: fresh ingredients and fresh from the oven. The café has two locations on the 16th Street Mall: 500 16th St. and 1147 16th St. Open 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday; and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
The Squeaky Bean – If you’re in a fog from the previous night’s festivities, there’s nothing like brunch and bingo to focus the mind. Seriously. Every Saturday and Sunday the game is hosted by local comedians. Brunch is served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. while bingo is played from 12:30 p.m. until 2 p.m. The brunch menu is stunning with offerings like shrimp and grits, banana pudding French toast and cinnamon-raisin bread egg sandwiches.
Syrup – This is a locals’ favorite and, as the name implies, they have homemade syrups. Also check out the award-winning corn beef hash. The downtown location is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.
