Best Denver Coffee
Kaladi Brothers: this is the best coffee in town…we go there for takeaway coffee and buying beans, not as much for sit-down.
Metropolis: slightly closer to the Baker neighborhood, this is a great sit-down coffee shop with fabulous coffee. The free wifi is nice as well.
Best Denver Mojito
Cuba Cuba: a great date night place for dinner and drink, or a great bar to have a few (slightly pricy but oh so worth it) drinks.
Best Denver Tapas
9th Door: The 9th Door: possibly my favorite place in downtown Denver, especially the happy hour. Honey drizzled fried goat cheese ball, anyone?
Best Take-Away Sandwich Shop
After a few months working in the Golden Triangle we finally found Parsley which is an awesome restaurant that provides gourmet sandwiches, salads, fruit smoothees, and now soups at reasonable (though not cheap) prices. It is a great value, though be prepared that a typical meal will set you back about $10 ($7-8 for a salad or sandwich, 2-3 for a drink).
Best Denver bagel
Moe's Bagels: a local favorite
Einstein Brothers Bagels: OK so it’s a chain, but they do have a delightful Santa Fe breakfast sandwich.
