#2 Best Bagels: Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen

 Address: 725 E 26th Ave, Denver, CO 80205

If you’ve got a hankering for the best breakfast bagel in Denver, stop at Rosenberg’s. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a bagel shop in NYC (where the owner is from). 

On their menu, you’ll find all of the classic bagel flavors (like sesame, garlic, cinnamon raisin, and of course, everything) and your choice of shmear.

For a little more substance, try a breakfast sandwich, a fish sandwich, or a deli sandwich

Why We Love It

Rosenberg’s is an authentic bagel and lox restaurant – authentic because the owner, Joshua, is from New York City and worked tirelessly to replicate NYC’s methods and brought that to Denver successfully. 

How lucky is Denver that someone who knows the craft of the bagel decided to bring it westward? 

#3 Best Artisanal Breakfast: The Bindery

Address: 1817 Central St, Denver, CO 80211

The Bindery describes itself as an “eatery, market, and bakery,” which means it’s a great breakfast option in Denver. The restaurant itself sits in a chic space in LoHi, with tall ceilings and a modern design. 

You’ll love gathering here with friends and family for breakfast and brunch. Menu items include high-end versions of greek yogurt, eggs, breakfast burritos, pastries, chilaquiles, etc.

Sometimes, you wake up feeling hungry and fancy. The Bindery is perfect for those days, which is what we love about it! 

The Bindery strives to provide artisanal eats made by the best of the best chefs, and their goal is to mesh with the LoHi community and provide an excellent experience for guests. We’re sold! 

#4 Best Biscuits: Denver Biscuit Company

Address: 3237 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80206

Denver Biscuit Company has expanded to several restaurants in Denver and the U.S., but the original is on Colfax Ave. 

This is where you’ll come if you want the best comfort food for breakfast. Whatever you order, it will most likely involve a biscuit, and it will definitely be indulgent.
