The Best Brunch in Denver
Have we mentioned lately how much we love brunch?! Luckily, the city of Denver seems to feel the same way. Maybe it’s the fact that this quickly growing city is also becoming a foodie paradise. Or maybe it’s the abundant availability of fresh, high quality ingredients. Or perhaps, it’s the green leaves everyone seems to be ingesting in all forms lately, causing those mid-day munchies… Whatever the case, Denver is definitely cultivating more than just cannabis these days. So for your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of the best brunch in Denver, regardless of your state of mind.

The Denver Biscuit Company
From it’s humble origins as The Biscuit Bus, to a growing biscuit empire with a near cult following, The Denver Biscuit Company offers southern comfort at it’s finest. To begin, you can choose from an impressive line up of ten different epic biscuit sandwiches. If a sammich isn’t your jam, they offer up a variety of other options, including a vegetarian biscuit pot pie, and strawberry shortcake. Regardless of what you order, we recommend blocking off a few hours afterwards for a much needed nap.

Only offered on Sundays, this Denver OG boasts a brunch that has been rated as one of Denver’s best for years. With an elevated American comfort food style, they’re both laid back and classy at the same damn time. Enjoy some breakfast tots with poblano aoli, or an epic french toast with honey butter, white chocolate, and fig, while you also listen to the tunes of a local DJ. A constantly changing seasonal menu keep you coming back for more (as if you needed a reason).

If you’re looking to spice up your usual brunch fare, head to Lola. While you might not think of brunch when you hear that they specialize in costal Mexican cuisine, you’ll soon be whistling a new tune. Horchata pancakes, Crab Cake Benedictos, and breakfast enchiladas are only a few of the insane breakfast dishes that they put out. Pair them with one of their impressive bloody mary’s, and you’ll be setting yourself up for a solid Sunday Funday.

Beast and Bottle
Best and Bottle is currently one of Denver’s most popular brunch spots, and for good reason. They offer a laid back vibe with upscale style, making any person feel right at home. Get the party started with a Whiskey in the Morning cocktail, and choose from a variety of delicious plates including the fried green tomato sandwich, and the french omelette. Bonus: if you order anything with eggs, you’re experiencing some serious farm to table action. Beast and Bottle has their own flock of organically raised chickens, located at Cottonwood Creek Farms in Colorado.

Feeling classy AF this Sunday? Then head down to Ellyngton at the Brown Palace for their champagne brunch. This insanely over the top version of a classic Sunday brunch offers variety of options, including a grade A waffle and omelette station, a fresh sushi selection, and pastries made in house. If you’re really going all out, you can upgrade to the Dom Perignon version and dine like true (drunken) royalty. Plan to spend at least a few hours dining here so that you can sample a little of everything. You may want to go ahead and book a room too, so that you can just stumble a few floors up and sleep it all off (hey, we said classy, right?).
