Peppers is best known for its pancakes -- a flagship staple at this restaurant, light and fluffy, but still substantial enough that a stack of two makes a full meal. Trust us: These slightly sweet, slightly malty hotcakes are the diner pancakes of your dreams. But don't be fooled into thinking that all Peppers has to offer is breakfast, because the menu has something for everyone, a sort of mishmash of American, Greek and Mexican, burgers and gyros and burritos served alongside cups of Colorado green chile. And there's one other important staple at Peppers: the service. Owner George Strompoulos keeps checking in with his customers to see if everything's okay (it always is).
