The Stapleton neighborhood just got a new place where you can grab a quick bite for breakfast. Udi’s Bread Café (7357 East 29th Avenue, 303-329-8888) -- already revered for dishing up some of the neighborhood’s best dinner and weekend brunch entrees -- began serving up a pared-down weekday breakfast menu last week.
The menu, which is served from 7-11 a.m. Monday through Friday, includes egg sandwiches, pastries, breakfast burritos and, of course, the ubiquitous granola that put Udi’s on the map. All of Udi’s breads and pastries, including the popular pecan rolls, are baked fresh at Udi’s Café and Bakery at 7000 Broadway; the Broadway location serves weekday breakfast from 7-10 a.m. and lunch until 2 p.m. (It’s closed on the weekends.)
While the new weekday menu at the Stapleton Udi’s doesn’t include the full menu of weekend brunch favorites -- such as huevos rancheros, omelets, pancakes and French toast -- it’s still a sure bet for a good, locally grown, freshly baked breakfast on the go.
