Marczyk’s Fine Foods
5100 E. Colfax, Park Hill
Pete Marczyk is something of a hero to Denver foodies. His tiny, long-standing, homegrown grocery store stocks locally grown produce, imports the very best cheeses (plus a selection of great local options), and bakes their own breads, but Marczyk is probably best known for being one of the area's best butchers, as he does everything in-house and flies in gorgeous cuts of fish. The deli section has excellent sandwiches and delicious pre-made foods, and on weeknights in the summer (check the calendar) they grill hamburgers on the sidewalk outside. There's a second location up the street, too.
5126 E. Colfax Ave., Park Hill
This cooly masculine café is a hipster-esque mash-up of concepts done really well: It's part coffee house and minimalist whiskey bar, part retail space—and, in the back, a members-only event-space (you can join the club for just $10 a month) that doubles as a work station for local freelancers and entrepreneurs. Also available to members Tuesday through Saturday: the Bellwether barbershop.
