Best Brunch In Denver

One of my favorite date activities is going out for brunch with my husband after sleeping in on Sunday morning. Denver is full of incredible restaurants offering scrambles, Eggs Benedict, pancakes and your classic continental. Another perk: breakfast typically feels a lot healthier than going out for dinner because you have the option of ordering eggs, mixed fruit and a kale smoothie — YUM!

Here are a few must try breakfast joints in Denver.

Denver brunchSnooze an A.M. Eatery

Snooze opened their doors in Denver, CO 10 years ago and have since added locations in California, Arizona and Texas. You can expect a 45-90 minute wait on any given weekend but trust me, it’s worth it. My go to order is the Bella! Bella! Benny Benedict but people swear by the Breakfast Tacos. No matter what you order, it’s delicious.

Urban Egg

What this place lacks in curb appeal, it makes up for in flavor. Located in a strip mall in Highlands Ranch, CO about 20 miles south of Denver, Urban Egg Eatery is a locally owned and operated restaurant named #10 on Urbanspoon’s list of 101 Great Breakfasts in the U.S. Substitute your side of hash browns for a pancake of your choice for a small up-charge. They are phenomenal.

Jelly Cafe

If you’re looking for a delicious scramble with a side of Instagram worthy jelly donuts, look no further than Jelly Cafe, this trendy diner located in Capitol Hill. They also offer a bottomless mimosa for $12, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing. *shamelessly raises hand*

Denver Biscuit Company

Best brunch in Denver“Biscuits smothered in…” should be their slogan because practically everything on the menu includes a biscuit smothered in something. What started as The Biscuit Bus food truck developed into a well established breakfast spot named Denver Biscuit Company that has caught the attention of Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. If you’re looking for a good hearty home-cooked meal (and an opportunity to brag to people about how you’ve been to a place that has been on TV), this is the place to be. Read my full review here.

Lucile’s Creole Cafe

This place is what my nieces would call, “totes adorbs.” They have 6 locations across Colorado and are wildly popular with the locals. The restaurant’s theme is “Lucile’s Creole Café, Exploring Creole Cooking from Around the World,” and you truly do feel as though you’ve step foot in New Orleans the moment you enter the door. Trust me, I went to New Orleans one time. I’m clearly an expert.

  1. […] It doesn’t get much more picturesque than a Farmers’ Market outside of iconic Union Station. This may be my favorite market in Denver because it has a selection of locally made cheese, chocolates and breads as well as fresh produce. While you’re here, make a reservation at Snooze, a restaurant located inside of Union Station that made my Best Brunch in Denver list. […]

Snooze has the best pancakes in Denver, it’s on my Best Brunch in Denver list. […]
