Denver Trip Itinerary-Yay or Nay?

I've been scouring the boards to make the most of my 6 day trip to denver with my BF next week, and this is my run down so, and would just like some feedback before I finalize it. We're staying in the Central Business District, and are mostly looking for places within walking distance and generally not crazy expensive, so here's what I have so far:

Breakfast/Brucnch: Lucille's, El Taco de Mexico, Sam's #3, Snooze
Lunch: Mici, Wynkoop, Falling Rock, any of the above
Happy Hour: Jax Fish House, Panzano
Dinner: B-Day dinner at Fruition, and reservations at Marco's Coal Fired.

We're probably going to recycle a bunch of places that are closest to the hotel, but I'm up for any other suggestions. I'm also looking for some cool dessert places, maybe a gelateria, or a cute bakerie. Thanks.

  1. check out the SAME cafe at 2023 e colfax ave in denver. it's 2 miles from downtown. it is a cafe where they don't have a cash register. you drop money in a jar for your meal whatever you want to pay for it, and if you don't want to pay you can volunteer to wash dishes, clean tables, whatever needs to be done at the time. they sell t-shirts for $15. i am going to denver in sept so i will be stopping in there. SAME stands for "so all may eat"

    1. D Bar Desserts is a local fave:

      If you're not over cupcakes I get a kick out of Happy Cakes, though I'm sure it's not purist material...
