Fun & (Almost) Free Food Experiences

There are many iconic food spots around Denver that travelers must consider visiting. We’ve narrowed down a few to make your travels as easy and as tasty as possible.

Sweet Tooth

Maple Bacon Bar from Voodoo Doughnut

Little Man Ice Cream is one of the most-well known ice cream spots around. Their Highlands location is set in a milk-jug shaped structure and due to popularity there is almost always a line, even in freezing temps. Their ice cream sandwiches come in four different flavors and are the perfect way to end the day. They also have vegan flavors available!

Voodoo Doughnut has two locations in Denver and is a quintessential sweet spot for all. Peruse their donuts with many unique fillings, toppings, and shapes and you’ll be sure to be pleased. For a sweet and salty fix, try their maple bacon bar.

We all need a pick-me up first thing in the morning. Right across the street from the hostel is Amethyst Coffee, with the most friendly baristas and beautiful lattes you can imagine. There is a modern and inviting design inside that extends to outside.

Lula Rose General Store is the perfect spot to escape the city and enjoy craft coffee, pastries and open-faced sandwiches made in-house. They also sell freshly cut flowers inside. There is no WiFi, allowing customers to truly connect with each other and enjoy their drinks.

Fresh Flavors

Tacos Tequila Whiskey really gets to the point. The locally-owned restaurant has three locations around town and crafts delicious street tacos and drinks. Vegetarian, pescatarian, and carnivore-friendly, TTW is your go to Mexican joint with fresh and colorful ingredients.

Salty Savors

Craving dim sum? Zoe Ma Ma is just the place to enjoy dumplings and authentic Chinese street food. The food is all made in-house and reasonably priced for the quality. Try it out on your way in or out of Union Station.
