When Snooze opened its first location in 2007 in the Ballpark neighborhood, restaurateurs in Denver -- and soon, across the country -- woke up and took notice. With its retro dining room, hipper-than-thou clientele of club kids and big weekend crowds, Snooze can sometimes be a very annoying place to eat. But it's also a very good place to eat, because the breakfasts coming out of this kitchen are awesome. Smart turns on classic plates and creative pancakes make up the bulk of the board here, but there are also lunches for those who arrive late and hungry for something a bit more substantial. And the bar has several innovative cocktails for anyone still recovering from the night before.
