We all love an excuse to drink and have carb-filled meals in the middle of the day. Denverites love hikingskiingdrinking beer, and taking day trips. What better way to fuel up for your adventure than brunch?

We’ve compiled a list of some of the best brunch spots in Denver, so get ready to indulge in some waffles and bottomless mimosas.

Brunch in Denver:

1.Old Major: 3316 Tejon St

Meat-focused Old Major serves brunch both Saturday and Sunday and draws guests in with dishes like the country-fried chicken and cinnamon French toast.

2. Denver Biscuit Company

Brunch is a tradition here that comes with biscuits and gravy, pastry baskets, and the cider-glazed pork Benedict. As of 2019, it’s now served Fridays in addition to weekends.

3. Linger: 2030 W 30th Ave
Diners line up outside the door before this eclectic LoHi spot opens on Sundays for brunch. The menu includes a selection ranging from Argentine steak & eggs to hangover ramen and chorizo tacos.

4. Snooze, an A.M. Eatery

Snooze is as foolproof as it is critic-proof. The menu goes on and on, and you’ll be hard-pressed to choose between any number of Benedicts, sandwiches, seasonal frittatas, and a luscious breakfast pot pie smothered in sausage gravy. 

5. Beast + Bottle

Both Saturdays and Sundays, chef Paul Reilly and his skilled team offer fun dishes such as the flax seed Belgian waffle, challah French toast, and the corned lamb shank hash.

6. Shells and Sauce

$3 drinks, settle in. This spot’s not only a place where you can opt for pasta for brunch (say yes to the eggs carbonara), they’ve also got burritos, pulled pork arepas, chili cheese fries, and one of the best chicken & waffles plates around (it’s slathered in bacon and Stranahan’s whiskey butter).

7. Onefold

The star of the show is the breakfast taco. So big each one needs to be pinned together with a skewer to keep from spilling out, they’re filled with super-fluffy scrambled eggs, duck fat hash browned potatoes, and bacon, sausage, or chorizo.

8. Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen

Smoked fish and house-cured meats, containers of cream cheese and salad, kugels and knishes, babka and challah, hamantaschen and rugelach, and of course the all-important array of bagels: It’s all here.
