These are my all time favorites and go-to's that I will reccommend 20/10 times.

Bao Brewhouse

Make a res at the upstairs tea room and enjoy a DJ while you eat and drink all the bao buns.

Order: mushroom dumplings, bbq pork bao buns, fried rice and brussels side


I will always recommend Safta to people visiting town. I love to come here for girls dinner or bringing the parents when they are in town since its best to order many dishes and share.

Order: Hummus, muhamarra, falafel, fattoush salad, braised lamb shank

Just BE Kitchen

Love bringing my friends here for a post workout healthy breakfast or a lunch date to sit on their back patio. 

Order: breakfast burrito and any of their desserts

Mango Tree Coffee

Catch me here every Saturday morning sitting on the couch with my bff and enjoying one of the few places you can get bonfire burritos.

Order: Honey Cinnamon Almond Milk Latte and a veggie burrito

Molecule Effect

I am likely their most frequent flyer. Not just because I live directly above it but because it is truly that good. They have daily specials and events but Saturday BOGO espresso martinis are where its at. 

Order: 2 espresso martinis (for myself)

Family Jones

The best place to bring out of town friends for a cocktail or for a date night. They are a distillery and make their own liquors.

Order: The rotate their drinks often but love their gin.


This my fav spot because the menu is so eclectic you can find anything here but also the views from the roof are top notch.

Order: Bao Bun Trio, Vitnamese Crepe, Pad Thai, or anything honestly

Hudson Hill

The decor and vibes in here keep me coming back for morning coffee and then stick around long enough to get a cocktail.

Order: Chai latte in the morning and Maized and Confused in the evening

Green Collective Eatery

I crave these toasts weekly. They have savory and sweet toasts that are very generous portions or if I am feeling a smoothie bowl I will switch it up. The owner is a sorority sister and see has done an amazing job with the place!

Order: toast flight - whipped goat, ab&j, avo toast and chagachino

Bar Taco

I have many memories from Boudler at Bar Taco and was so excited when they opened a Denver location. They don't take reservations but I can always find a spot at the bar for one of their amazing margs.

Order: Cauliflower taco, Ahi Tuna taco, Coin Marg, and a side of pineapple.

Il Posto

My favorite spot for any occasion or celebration. When I am craving quality Italian this is the place to go. I fell in love with Boar Ragu in Italy and they have the closest thing to the original here. 

Order: Burrata and Papardelle


I would eat here every night if I could. Always great for birthday dinners or catching up with friends. In the warmer months I love sitting on the back patio.

Order: Guac (duh), house salad, and Carne asada 

Blue Sparrow

My go-to place for a coffee and getting work done. They have big tables in the work area and a lot of other people also working. Oh and many dogs to play with.

Order: Honey Almond Latte

Denver Central Market

When ever in doubt this is the place to go to grab a bite and a drink. They have everything in here from pizza. salads, sandwiches, ice cream, and espresso martinis.

Order: Cold soba noodles from Greenseed Market and chocolates from temper

Root Down

A veggie forward menu with seasonal flavors and a cozy yet vibrant atmosphere. I love to come here with my veggie friends so we can all order from the menu. 

Order: any of their pastas with a side of sweet potato fries


An exploration of contemporary Middle Eastern Cuisine. Perfect for ordering a few dishes for sharing. Lots of fun colors and contemporary design in here.

Order: the mushrooms on top of any hummus is to die for


This has been my friends and I go to for weekend drinks and it does help that its walking distance from my apartment. The first 2 stories are drinks and food while the top floor and balcony are drinks only. 

Order: Espresso martini or avocado margarita. Maddi also loves the key lime pie :)

Cart Driver

A great choice for upscale Italian to order shared plates. Great for date nights, special occasions, or just a good Saturday night dinner.

Order: Pesto pasta or Cart-Driver pizza


Under the same umbrella as Quality Italian and Cretans. This would be my ideal date night to enjoy drinks and dinner. I feel like a bougee cherry creek resident whenever I come here.

Order: meatballs, whipped goat cheese, and the salmon

Mister Oso

My favorite neighborhood restaurant both in Wash Park and RiNo. Such vibrant vibes and have always had the best bartenders who will go out of their way to make a cocktail for you. The food is also to die for, may not be authentic mexican but it sure is good.

Order: Spicy Bear Ceasar and Mojo Tacos

Reynard Social

On the 6th floor of the Thompson hotel with swanky vibes and a great aesthetic. There is a lounge, bar and even rooms you can reserve with pool tables. 

Order: Crudo and any of their cocktails

Urban Farmer

A modern rustic steakhouse with some quality food. I love to bring my parents here when they are in town. A great place with a variety of dishes that never disappoint from oysters to classic steak and potatoes. 

Order: Striped Bass or your favorite cut of steak

Wash Perk

My favorite Wash Park cute coffee shop. You order in the window outside and can sit at their many tables outside or inside when its cold. I always stop here before my weekly wash park walks. 

Order: Pumpkin spice latte in the fall, its my favorite and have tried a lot.
