Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, but what if you’re the type of person that likes to sleep in on occasion? The solution, brunch! Boulder is home to some amazing restaurants, and some that top the list also serve delicious brunches. Here are our ten favorite brunch spots.
Named the ‘Best Diner in Colorado’ by Business Insider, the Village Coffee Shop brings the traditional diner breakfast flare with hangover curing powers. You’ll find breakfast staples such as homemade biscuits and gravy, omelets with your favorite fixings, and of course, bacon! The menu is selective for a diner, but they pack a punch into everything they make.
At the Greenbriar Inn, brunch is saved for Sunday, making it a special event. Enjoy a white tablecloth fine-dining experience with stunning mountain views. Choose from oysters, quiche, roast prime rib, dessert pastries, Belgian waffles, and more. For the ultimate treat, splurge for the champagne brunch buffet.
Enjoy brunch with a calming atmosphere at the Dushanbe Teahouse, one of Boulder’s most impressive places to visit. If you want to feel adventurous, try their ‘Greek Scramble’, ‘Kookoo Sabzi’, ‘Indian Dosa’, or the ‘Persian Chickpea Kufteh’.
The Buff is one of the most popular spots for locals and students to eat. They actually started in an episode of “Man Vs Food” for its saddlebag pancakes (pancakes filled with either diced bacon or sliced sausage and topped with eggs). If you’re wanting to step away from the traditional breakfast options, try their southwestern kick choices. And we highly suggest getting their pecan caramel quesadilla as a starter!
Proclaimed as Boulder’s best kept secret, The Parkway Cafe has been serving up great American style breakfast for years. Local favorites are the ‘Hobo Omelette’ with corned beef hash, the ‘Migas Cuatro Quesos’, and the classic ‘Heuvos Rancheros’ served with green chili.
Lucile’s is bringing classic Creole style food to Colorado, drawing in daily crowds. Try their chicory coffee while waiting to be seated, you won’t be disappointed. For those with a sweet tooth try the beignets, the plain perdu, or the praline waffles.
Founded by brothers Jon and Adam Schlegel in Denver, Snooze puts a new twist on the classic American style breakfast. It serves a breakfast pot pie, pineapple upside down pancakes, sweet potato pancakes, and a pretzel roll breakfast sandwich.
The Walnut Cafe is a trendy breakfast spot that serves these morning meals all day. They tend to have large portions, so make sure to come hungry! The breakfast burrito, spicy pumpkin waffle, and pesto quesadill are some of the local favorites.
Jill’s is a modern bistro in the St. Julien Hotel that serves up an elegant Sunday brunch. The major selling point is the bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marys, or sparkling wine served with your meal. Find French-American options such as smoked salmon, crab legs, sticky buns, and prime rib.
The Kitchen is an American bistro dedicated to serving delicious, real food sourced from American farmers. They serve innovated twists on the breakfast classics. Enjoy their lemon ricotta pancakes, shrimp and grits, or mushroom toast. Don’t miss the homemade pastries and fresh brunch cocktails.
