Brunch is a weekend tradition, a time of lazy conversation, sweet slices of french toast, bottomless Mimosas and Micheladas. Across the city, young and old, hipsters, yuppies, and geeks, families with strollers or singles with dogs come together to toast the beginning of the end of the weekend.

The Eater Denver brunch heatmap is your guide to the newest and buzziest destinations for weekend day drinking and dining. There are ten restaurants to choose from here. If there's a favorite new restaurant—or an established one trying new things—that we've missed, let us know on the tipline or in the comments. Happy weekend!
