Hard as it is to believe, Snooze has only been in existence for eleven years, and today it boasts more than twenty locations in four states. Brothers Adam and Jon Schlegel started it on a then-destitute block of Larimer Street as a late-night breakfast joint before switching to more traditional breakfast and lunch hours. Denver embraced the first Snooze with such vigor that the stains of spilled coffee and Bloody Marys are visible on the sidewalks outside — if you can see them through the throng of hungry customers waiting sometimes upwards of an hour for a table. With each new iteration of the breakfast phenom, the crowds kept coming, and Snooze has maintained its hip persona even through a corporate purchase. Not bad for a little flapjack house in a flyover state.
