Sketch Wine Bar adds java, breakfast and lunch to its lineup

Sketch, the sultry wine bar at 101 Broadway, already has one of the best late-night menus in Denver, and now, owners Jesse Morreale and Sean Yontz, have added breakfast and lunch dishes to the syllabus, along with a full-service coffee and espresso bar. "The breakfast thing has been in the plan ever since we opened almost a year ago, and lunch was the next logical step, considering we'd already be open and staffed, " explains Morreale.

The morning menu, available until 11 a.m. daily, pimps oatmeal, bagels, smoothies packed with protein powder and breakfast panini heaped with egg whites, ham and cheddar. And the panini theme continues throughout the lunch hour with choices of prosciutto and mozzarella, Virginia ham with white cheddar or pickles and cappicola paved with goat cheese and mounted with tomatoes. "I love all of our espresso drinks, but food-wise, I'm really digging the simple egg white and ham breakfast panini, because it reminds me of my mom's fried egg sandwiches," says Morreale.

But for all the talk about panini, the most awesome thing about Sketch's expanded hours is that the wine bar's salumi and cheese plates will be available long before happy hour, which means you can ply your gullet with salami, beef carpaccio, chorizo, Époisses, Morbier and Haystack Peak right after you've plowed through your bowl of oats.

Sketch is now open at 6 a.m. Monday through Friday and at 7 a.m. on the weekends.
