Where to Eat: Denver


D and I first visited Snooze following a recommendation from a friend who lived in Denver. We have since been back several times--and each visit is as delicious as the last. This little corner eatery, open for breakfast and lunch only, is THE place to go for Sunday brunch. Breakfast at Snooze was the icing on the cake of my birthday weekend in Denver this past weekend. When we ran past the restaurant around 10a during a morning jog around downtown, there were already tons of people waiting for tables. When we came back later around 12p, the wait time for a table was over an hour. Though we were starving, there was no question whether or not we would wait. We walked around the LoDo neighborhood (Coors Field is only a couple blocks' walk from Snooze), and the hour flew by.

On the weekend, Snooze is definitely hopping--during our recent visit the crowd skewed toward the hair-of-the-dog and hipster scene. Where's my washed-out vintage tee-shirt and funky sunglasses when I need 'em?

Snooze prides itself on sourcing ingredients from organic or local producers and everything that I've had there is delicious. Among my favorite things on the menu are the breakfast burrito (leftovers pictured above -- the burrito is HUGE) and the pineapple upside down pancakes (imagine pineapple upside down cake in pancake form -- yeah, yum!)

And, oh, wow--they're opening a Snooze in Fort Collins this April! Such a close proximity to home could be dangerous.
