Patsy's has been serving up red-sauce Italian fare in northwest Denver since 1921, and the bar and dining room -- along with the menu itself -- is a window into the neighborhood's past.
The restaurant keeps pulling in legions of diners, and now it's added a new incentive to stop by: weekend breakfasts.
Despite Patsy's culinary focus, its morning meal offerings aren't exactly Italian: "It's like a coffee shop," a bartender explains. "It's nothing ostentatious." He cites a full breakfast menu filled with things like bacon, eggs and biscuits and gravy.
That breakfast rolled out this past weekend and is available every Saturday and Sunday from 7:30 a.m. until noon.
