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

A holiday weekend lies ahead, with plenty of opportunities to linger over a good breakfast. To supplement our recent list of the Ten Best Brunches, which focused on restaurants that only serve a morning meal on weekends, we just served up our Ten Best Breakfast Restaurants in Denver — places that rise and shine seven days a week. Everyone has their favorite breakfast spot, and while some readers complained that certain names were missing from the list — Jelly, for example — others were relieved. Says Lee:

Thank god none of the true great places I love were mentioned. Not unlike bars, the dives are the best.

Willing to share? What's your favorite breakfast spot in Denver?

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.
