Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Snooze owner Jon Schlegel certainly has loyal fans -- and family members. Today's print edition includes a response to my January 18 Second Helping from Schlegel's brother Adam, who works at the popular breakfast/lunch place. We also received the following from another relative who lives in Tucson:

What's Jason Sheehan got against Snooze? He's had it out for the place since his first review, which included more obscure references to Omega Man than it did about the actual food. I guess the scores of people, including myself, who willingly and happily wait to get a taste of that f'ed up corn beef hash, blown hollandaise, gooey tortillas and those "okay" pancakes are all just a bunch of morons. But what do we know? We're not the hipster food critic.

And seriously -- call it eggs Benedict. "Eggs Benny" just makes Jason sound silly. Or lazy. Or both. It does not make Jason sound hip.

Personally, I've never had a bad meal at Snooze, and will continue to support it any chance I get.

And considering her connection to the owner, she'll probably have plenty of chances. -- Jason Sheehan

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
