ReFuel, the casual sandwich spin-off of Fuel Café, received two and a half stars in the latest Denver Post review. Restaurant critic Bill Porter enjoyed the ten sandwich selection and highlighted the Lieutenant Dan, reFuel's take on a banh mi, the Castro, a version of the traditional Cuban sandwich, and the Travtron 2.0, a roast beef panini. Porter pointed out that the sandwiches, all bearing quirky names, are "good value, too, with nearly every sharable-sized sandwich costing $9." The critic suggested caffeinating at Boxcar Roasters, an artisan coffee shop that shares the space, if the lunch puts you in a food coma.
Yaffa's Savory, a Mediterranean café located off Monaco Parkway and East Evans, is a simple but irresistible place, Gretchen Kurtz of Westword confesses. Without the fuss of hot restaurants, the design, the chef fame, or even a liquor license, this casual eatery simply charms with its food. Opened in February as a deli selling the owner's full line of products, the small space evolved into an eatery with an all-day menu of soups, panini, hummus platters, and a mix of Mediterranean entrees. Skip the borekas and Grandma's silky soup, but be sure not to miss the popular hummus and the "chicken soup for the soul."
