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

We'll publish our first review by our new Cafe critic, Gretchen Kurtz, next week, and in the meantime, you'll have plenty of chew on when our point/counterpoint on tipping appears here tomorrow.

But as commenters and critics alike know all too well, there's never any shortage of material on Cafe Society to discuss.

Says monopod:

Welcome, Gretchen. My advice: don't read these comments. Or if you do, have a thick skin and a sense of humor. Most of the folks here don't get out much.

Read more about our new Cafe critic here, and watch for advice from our previous Cafe critics.

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.
