523 E. 17th Ave., Uptown
This Denver institution is known primarily for brunch, in part because of their signature bacon Bloody Marys (served with bacon-infused vodka), and their big, open patio, which always seems to be buzzing and full. That said, their comfort-food menu, which is subtly southern, is great all day long, as the breakfast dishes bleed into dinner: We recommend the traffic jam, an egg dish that comes with green chili cheese fries, sausage gravy, and bacon (and removes all traces of any hangover); the chicken and waffles; and the nightly blue-plate specials. Make sure to get an order of the sinfully good Steubie snacks, their special version of puppy chow (for the uninitiated: Chex Mix coated in peanut butter, chocolate, and powdered sugar).
