The Denver Diner is a local institution. A 24/7 spot located on the corner of Colfax and Speer, it's a perfect place to take a break and do some people-watching, whether you're heading out for a night on the town or on your way home from the bars. Grab one of the vintage formica tables lining the side of the restaurant or settle in at the bar and watch the most interesting people in the place: the short-order cooks who are cooking your steak and eggs, meatloaf, burgers or any other comfort food you could possibly desire.
