Today I'm sharing my favorite part of the travel guide- food!
Even for a short visit, we got to sample some pretty delicious findings in Denver. Unfortunately we didn't make it to some of the other places we wanted to go but I've included them in the list anyway for next time!
We really liked Union Station. It's a beautiful train station with lots of good food and drinks and so many places to sit and relax while you wait for your train. When we arrived Friday morning, the place was packed. Because we'd had a 6AM flight, I desperately needed caffeine when we arrived in Denver. Pig Train Coffee is right at the station and provided lots of great coffee options and some stellar pastries. The chocolate croissant was delicious, they really don't skimp on the chocolate!
That's always been something of a pet peeve of mine.
Milkbox Ice Creamery is also at Union Station and they have some really yummy flavors. I had a banana chip sundae and it was so good. The prices are also much more reasonable than a lot of other downtown areas. The storefront is super cute with all kinds of adorable souvenirs and they even sell pints and ice cream sandwiches! The alcohol milkshakes looked really good too!
The Nickel was actually very conveniently located inside the hotel where we were staying, Hotel Teatro. When the restaurant wasn't open yet, The Study served their menu as well.
We had a late lunch at Rhein Haus on our last day. We love German food and this place had reasonable prices and a good selection. The food was delicious and they had a super cute bocce ball court right by the bar. The layout was fun and the service was great too!
We had dinner our first night at Euclid Hall. We were originally planning to go somewhere else but when we got to the other place it was under construction (and it hadn't been mentioned on their website boo). I had looked into Euclid Hall as well and since it was a close walk from where we were, it won. The food was pretty good and had a really fun balance of flavors.
We grabbed tea at Brown Palace as well. We love afternoon tea! The setting was really nice with a pianist playing some fun pieces in addition to the classical ones. The tea platter had a good selection and everything was nice and fresh.
Places We Didn't Make It To This Time
We really wanted to go to Sam's No. 3, especially when we saw how crowded it was! The cops were inside eating and you know cops know good food! We like to follow Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and this places was featured so I'll make sure to check it out next time!
I love a good hot dog and the menu at Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs looked awesome! Seriously- rattlesnake and reindeer are on the menu! Definitely bookmarked for next time!
Tamayo looked like a really fun spot and their menu (especially for happy hour) looked delicious.
I'd seen that Little Owl Coffee is supposed to be one of the best coffee shops in America. Sad I missed it this time!
