ALL DAY: High Point Creamery
Who says ice cream isn’t a morning treat? Fortunately, for those with a sweet tooth, High Point is open fairly early, which means post-breakfast “dessert” is a thing. Try the ice “Kouign” sandwich made with a kouign-amann from Izzio bakery and a healthy scoop of High Point ice cream.
FOR DRINKS: The Cruise Room
Not all cocktails are crafted the same, and the Cruise Room is one Mile High staple that continually exceeds expectations. With a newly renovated interior that pays homage to the 1930s, a revised classic drink menu, and seasonal small bites from Urban Farmer, patrons ultimately feel transported back in time to an era just after the repeal of prohibition. Drinkers should try the east and west coast oysters alongside a dirty Hendrick’s gin martini (hold the vermouth).
FOR BREAKFAST: The Universal
Not to be mistaken with brunch, the Universal is a must-dine in the LoHi neighborhood, where breakfast is sacred and daylong dilly-dallying is frowned upon. Diners should stop in for an equally quick and delicious meal, and be sure to try the griddled blueberry pancake.
FOR A QUICK LUNCH: Vinh Xuong Bakery
Located just inside the newly opened Zeppelin Station, the latest Vinh Xuong Bakery is already leaving a big impression on the Denver dining scene. Try the pork banh mi served in a crunchy fresh baguette.
FOR DINNER: White Pie
When searching for the ultimate slice of New Haven pizza heaven, diners should look no further than White Pie located in Uptown. Grab a seat at the U-shaped bar and try the namesake white pie generously topped with crème fraiche, garlic, bacon, crimini mushrooms, mozzarella, and a runny, sunny egg.
