Syrup Opens Its Third Breakfast-and-Lunch Eatery in City Park

After several months of completely overhauling the former Le Peep at 1875 York Street, Syrup is now open for breakfast and lunch. This is the third Syrup in owner Tim Doherty's sweet little a.m. empire, after the original at 300 Josephine Street in Cherry Creek North and the downtown spot at 999 18th Street.

The newest member of the family offers the same menu of sweet and savory breakfast creations, infused syrups, and lunchtime burgers and sandwiches. The decor is bright and sunny, with paint and upholstery in shades of green familiar to Syrup regulars. As at the downtown branch, there's also a full bar with breakfast cocktails. But this Syrup also has a great patio facing City Park that should soon make it one of the city's most in-demand outdoor dining spots.

Doherty is also in the process of building a new restaurant at 2737 Welton Street in Five Points, though it will not be another Syrup.

The new Syrup is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and will get started a half-hour later on Saturdays and Sundays. Keep reading for more photos.
