DENVER -- Monday Brunch on Memorial Day

I will be visitng Denver over the Memorial Day weekend with family for a graduation (staying in the Cherry Creek area). Could someone please make a recommendation for a great restaurant where we could grab brunch on Monday, Memorial Day -- that's the only open time our graduate has for a family gathering. It doesn't need to be in the Cherry Creek area. Thanks.

  1. Not sure what you mean by Monday brunch—are you looking for a place that'll be serving breakfast as well as lunch items? The only place I can think of offhand that serves real brunch on weekdays is Lucile's
    and maybe Watercourse would qualify too.

    Is this a special celebration meal?
    But I've only been to the Boulder location of the former, so can't comment on it; as for the latter, it's good but not great and very casual.

      I second Lucille's. Great brunch place. Love the bloody marys and the beignets. Fabulous Creole food, and good service. (I've only been to the Denver location. On Logan just north of Alameda.)

    2. Brunch will probably be hard to come by on a Monday but here are a few tasty breakfast spots (you might want to double check where you plan to go anyway just in case they are closed for the holiday...)

      Benedict's (Arapahoe Road/Greenwood Village)
      Lucille's (Central Denver)
      Racine's (Speer/Central Denver)

        One thing you DON'T want to do on Memorial Day morning is come into Boulder, with is jammed with tens of thousands of Bolder Boulder runners/walkers.

        Because Memorial Day IS a holiday, some places that usually just serve weekend brunch might also do so on that particular Monday.

      2. Where did you end up this morning?
