Where will you be eating this morning? At a hip brunch or at one of Denver's old-school diners, including 20th Street Cafe? That's the 72-year-old joint in downtown Denver that Gretchen Kurtz just reviewed, introducing a new generation of diners to this classic spot.

In connection with that review, we served up our list of Ten Old-School Diners Serving Up Denver's Best Cheap Breakfast. And while some readers agreed with our rosters, others were quick to dish up other names. Where was Tom's Diner? Denver Diner? Breakfast Queen?

A few suggestions were surprises, including this from Ryan: 
Red Rooster should be on there.
Other readers saluted our list. Says Jeff: 
I’ve clogged my arteries at all of them. Yum!
Adds Gene: 
Davies' Chuck Wagon, love that place. The staff is always on the ball!
Thomas takes issue with one: 
Pete's is anything but cheap ! Last time I went there one meal was 17 dollars!
But compared to some spots, Pete's could be a bargain. Says Tom: 
When I moved here, everyone wanted to do these crazy brunches that cost $60-plus a person and you gotta wait wait hours for a table.....I’m just trying to beat a hangover here."
