Hi, loves! Last week, I posted part 1 of my Denver itinerary and I can’t wait to share part 2 with y
Denver has, without a doubt, the best breakfast in the history of breakfast. I’m not kidding! At the top of your list should be Denver Biscuit Co., there are a few locations around town but I’d recommend the one on Colfax because there are so many cute shops down there! If you’re looking for coffee on Colfax, head over to Hooked on Colfax. They have the best biscuits around town.
If you’re looking for acai bowls, head over to Highland and check out Prosperoats and Rush Bowls. Both are so good and have such different offerings! This was the perfect breakfast spot after hiking the Red Rocks.
Aside from the ah-mazing biscuits at Denver Biscuit Co., Snooze AM was my absolute favorite brunch spot. Again,
For a quick coffee, check out Carbon. If you’re interested in CBD drinks, they have a soothing (but bitter) CBD nitro coffee (pictured above). Luckily, Habit Doughnut Dispensary is right next door! The doughnuts are absolutely delicious and so fresh.
Lunch + Dinner
At the top of our list was Linger Eatuary – a restaurant that started out as a mortuary. I was a little creeped out, but the food was amazing! I recommend the Lemongrass Pork Potstickers. It’s not a meal I’d typically eat, but it was my favorite dinner in Denver.
When you’re shopping around the 16th Street Mall, definitely make a point to stop at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. The pizza is delicious, it’s quick and the wine selection is just as great!
If you can’t decide what to eat, head over to Avanti. This food-truck styled restaurant includes multiple fares and over 5 restaurants! The burgers are delicious, plus the rooftop is to die for.
And if you’re a beer connoisseur, Ale House is the place for you. In the highland neighborhood, it’s a walk away from anything so you’ll always be close. Plus, they have plenty of options for beer!
Dessert in Denver? Yes, please! Voodoo Doughnut was the obvious choice, and it didn’t disappoint. If you’re looking for eclectic doughnuts packed with taste, Voodoo is a must! Pictured above include The Loop, Gay Bar, Voodoo Doll, and the Viscous Hibiscus.
I thought Wisconsin was the ice cream capital of the world, but boy was I wrong. Denver has so many delicious ice cream shops, including 5280 Ice Cream on the 16th St Mall and Inside Scoop Creamery near the Millenium Bridge. Each shop has unique flavors, including chai, sweet rum and more.
Little Man Ice Cream should also top the list of desserts — it’s a cute little spot in Highland. The ice cream is homemade, which means it’s absolutely to die for! I recommend the sweet rum!
While I love Minneapolis’ restaurants, nothing will compare to the food in Denver. Personally, I believe that Denver has some of the best food I’ve ever tasted. If I can give one tip, it’s to eat your way through the mile-high city.
