I try to eat as healthy as I can, but when I fall off the wagon, I go all out. The Denver Diner is in the heart of downtown Denver and has the best breakfast you can find in the Mile High City.
It’s one of those places that when you walk in, you know you’re going to get a heart attack from the food you’re about to eat.
The building’s large windows provide a breathtaking backdrop for diners enjoying their meals.
Fair warning…. on weekends, especially after 2 in the morning, it gets busy; you can expect to wait for a table, but it’s worth it.
The menu is long and getting what you want for breakfast, lunch or dinner shouldn’t be a problem.
I will be honest, I don’t remember the name of the dish I had the early morning I stopped by. It was a long night of partying; when your buzzed, hungry and ready for bed—pointing and choosing always seems like a good option.
My dish can only described as breakfast pornography. It was homemade biscuits, scrambled eggs, hash browns, piles and piles of crispy bacon and topped with sausage gravy. The first bite was a treasures trove of flavors; a unique and delicious creation that should not be eaten more than once a year.
I can only imagine the number of calories, fat and carbs I ate on this rainy morning. If my personal trainer is reading this, please ignore everything you just read.
This dish truly was enough for two people, but on this trip it was all mine. I really couldn’t find one complaint about this breakfast.
I know the next time I am in Denver for breakfast, I will be back to the Denver Diner located at 740 W. Colfax.
