RT Cafe - Closed

988 Lincoln St.
Denver, CO 80203
RT Cafe is a modest breakfast-and-lunch place with plenty of Dazbog coffee and a Baltic bent to its fare. Eastern European dishes, including borscht, latkes, stroganoff and pierogi, highlight the lunch menu. Sandwiches are of the croissant variety, in cold, hot and sweet versions. There's also a pastry case with cake by the slice, macarons, eclairs and tartlets. And don't miss RT's breakfast staples, including waffles, pancakes and Benedicts.
