    Breakfast Mac at Sassafras. Yes, please.

    Sassafras, 2637 W 26th Ave: Classic comfort food with a Southern influence in a laid-back atmosphere. A popular destination for breakfast and lunch (they don’t have dinner service). A wide variety of unique menu items you can’t find anywhere else, like breakfast mac and cheese. Must Try: chicken fried eggs with smoked buffalo hash.

  • Marco’s Coal Fired Pizzeria, 2129 Larimer St: The only VPN-certified pizzeria in the state of Colorado, Marco’s serves authentic Neapolitan-style pies, with delicious thin crust and a combination of local and imported gourmet toppings. Their gluten-free pizza is the best around and cooked in a separate oven. Must Try: Lemoncello Chicken Wings

  • The British Bulldog, 2052 Stout St: As genuine as you’ll find on this side of the pond, this pub has a great beer selection and top-notch British and Pakistani grub on the menu. If you’re a soccer fan, this is your spot. They open as early as 5am for Premier League matches. It’s also the local headquarters for the American Outlaws supporters’ group. Must Try: Chicken Masala

  • Snooze, 2262 Larimer St: Do one thing and do it well, which in this case is brunch. Snooze has several locations in Denver serving up their unique take on breakfast staples. The lines are typically long but efficiently managed; enjoy the free coffee and juice while you wait. Must Try: Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

  • Guard and Grace, 1801 California St: Chef Troy Guard’s elegantly modern steakhouse boasts an extensive wine list and a great selection of Colorado-raised beef. Steak is the star, but the menu also showcases an impressive variety of dishes ranging from caviar to handmade gnocchi. Some of the finest dining in Denver. Must Try: Prosciutto Tasting Flight
