Downtown Denver on Saturday

fmolly Jun 30, 2008 07:38 PM

I'm going to be in Denver for a wedding this weekend and am looking for breakfast and lunch recommendations for Saturday. I have only two requirements:
1) It is within walking distance (up to a mile give or take) from my hotel which is on 16th St. between Champa and Curtis (The Marriott Courtyard Downtown)
2) It be less than $15-20 for the meal. The cheaper the better, really, although I will pay more for really really excellent food. Holes-in-the wall welcome!

Where should I go?? Thanks.

    Don't forget a trip for the best freakin' espresso you'll have in awhile: Aviano Coffee (just south of Colfax but not sure the neighborhood name).

      Snooze - probably best place- I think its within a mile - edge of downtown on the Eastside (it can also be crowded on the weekends.)

      Also Sams #3 and Dixons are very close by and good choices:

        2 places come to mind for lunch:

        Osteria Marco and Wynkoop Brewpub. Both easy walking distance.

          Panzano in the Hotel Monaco and Prima in the Hotel Teatro both serve B, L and D daily -- and both are good. I second the motion about Snooze, but don't go for lunch when the Rockies are playing at home. It is, however, not on the east side of downtown, but rather on the north in the Ballpark Neighborhood near Coors Field.

            Thanks for all the tips. We are actually having the rehearsal dinner at the Wynkoop Brewpub so I'm glad it's chow-approved!

              Try the Chile Beer! It's absolutely fantastic and I was told a couple of weeks it's now on tap permanently and no longer just seasonal.
