Considered an institution in the Mile High City, Lucile’s Creole Café has been serving Denverites sumptuous Southern Creole dishes since 1980. No brunch at Lucile’s is ever complete without its warm, ambrosial beignets—pronounced “ben-yay”—which you can enjoy inside the cozy interior or over on the patio, which offers a breathtaking view of the Rocky Mountains.
The rest of the menu is just as exquisite with palate-pleasing praline waffles, sublime eggs Sardou with creamed spinach, fresh Gulf shrimp, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce, and Cajun-style cooked Atlantic salmon. The place can get packed on the weekend but you don’t have to worry about that as you can sip a Bloody Mary at the lounge next to the dining room while waiting for your table.
Address: 1700 E Evans Ave, Denver, CO 80210
Mondays to Sundays: 7 am – 2 pm

You shouldn’t also miss the Molly Hot Brown or their take on the classic Haco Chili Benedict, which is a fluffy biscuit covered in hollandaise, poached eggs and a stew made of tomato, chorizo and poblano chili.

Onefold is a chic and charming eatery that opens early every day to serve breakfast. This Denver staple offers a classic menu that features crepes, breakfast burritos, hash browns and eggs. However, what you shouldn’t miss out on trying are the bacon fried rice and congee. Bacon fried rice needs no introduction although theirs has eggs cooked in duck fat, that amplifies the dish’s flavor further. Congee, on the other hand, is a rice porridge dish commonly served in Asia. But at Onefold, the common dish is done uncommonly well with duck confit, chopped green onions, tamari soy sauce, salted ginger, a poached egg and chili.
