for dessert or just fun and people watching, Voodoo Doughnut is my favorite donuts and they’re about a half mile away and are open close to 24 x 7, and have decent coffee too. they have seasonal and monthly donuts, be sure to ask your cashier what they recommend and like.

Cherry Cricket about 2 and half miles away is considered one of the best burger places in Denver. It’s also in the Cherry Creek area which has a mall, shops, and restaurants. The restaurant is low key and bar like atmosphere but the surrounding area is bougie. I like to go there if I’m craving a really good burger.

Tacos Tequila Whiskey is about a mile away and it’s a bougie taco place -3 to 5 bucks a taco, but it’s seriously some of the best tacos in Denver. Pretty laid back and cool atmosphere and busy. Good drinks too. Place gets packed quickly so be sure to get there before the meal peak times.

not far from Little India is a new American traditional bar called Logan Street. Great apps and food, this shares space with the CarBoy winery and offers some of Carboy's drinks. Also across the street from here is Trader Joe's, which I highly recommend for groceries, snacks, drinks, and desserts.

coffee / drinks
unfortunately I don't offer coffee other than some complimentary Starbucks mocha fraps, but if you're looking for an excellent coffee place, Thump just a couple blocks east should hit the spot. The drip coffee is also unlimited and the vibe is chill and hip -good for people watching too, though it's kind of quiet since lots of people like to work there.

I highly recommend the Green Russell prohibition style bar -expensive drinks, but a neat underground vibe, which I guess is what you are paying for. They have "mixologists" that can make you custom drinks by answering a few questions.

Peaks Lounge is about one mile away, this nice hotel bar located in the Hyatt is open to the public and has fantastic views being on the 27th floor. The drinks and apps are a bit expensive, but it's the tax for the ambience and views. Highly recommend coming here around sunset / twilight. There's a rooftop bar / restaurant called 54thirty, but it's not as high and there's usually a wait, not the case for Peak's Lounge.

if you're in the mood for something sweet, Liks is a great neighborhood ice cream and shakes destination. the ice cream tastes homemade and it's only 0.8 mile walk east. In my opinion this place is cheaper and tastes just as good or better than Little Man Ice Cream.

literally right next to Linger is Little Man Ice Cream -you'll know where to go since it's an ice cream shop that's shaped like a giant ice cream churn / bottle with a long a** line to it. Considered one of the best homemade ice cream shops in Denver. also a nice area around it to lounge and people watch

if you're craving ramen with some asian fusion dishes, Uncle is my fav ramen place. My fav is the spicy chicken. There's another Uncle restaurant in the Highlands area near El Five, but its wait is a lot longer, sometimes over an hour! Nice modern, hip, and laid back setting.

if you're craving some of the best sushi in Denver (my favorite) in like a modern, work of art style setting, Izakya Den has no competition. The building is shared with the Sushi Den and it's usually packed. I recommend getting your name put in the wait but go upstairs to the bar on the Izakaya Den side and usually they can sit you right away or the wait is definitely much shorter -you can order food at the bar too!

for a more fine wine dining, excellent food / service, and awesome city views, my favorite place is El Five. Great Mediterranean food and paella. be sure to reserve city views and get city side reservation around sunset/ golden hour / twilight -you will not be disappointed. Definitely can be a romantic destination if you're looking for some brownie points :)

if you're in the mood for lobster rolls, Maine Shack is a fairly recent new addition to Denver. Also in the hip Highlands neighborhood, this place is pricey, but I've been told reasonable for lobster. The brown butter roll was the only dish I've tried and it's great, but again, it's pricey!

Linger about 2.6 miles away, is a great restaurant and bar offering "international street food" so the cuisine is a bit all over the place, but lots of good asian cuisine. Be sure to check out the roof top bar with really nice downtown views, with the "O'Linger mortuaries" -it really used to be a mortuary!

literally in the same complex / building as Snarf's Sandwiches is Snarfburger which just recently opened up. great burgers as well and excellent for the price, around 6 bucks for a double patty.

for decent Chinese food, Little Gingko is the best convenient walking distance for Asian fare, being 3 blocks away (not far from Thump). It's priced a little more expensive, but the quantity for the dinner sized plates can easily feed two.

about a mile east, One Fold is my favorite brunch place. it has somewhat an eclectic menu as far cuisine, but my favorite dish is the chorizo burrito smothered with green chili. this place gets packed and it's a little pricey, but in my opinion totally worth it for the quality and size. small and hip cafe feel -there's also a starbucks across on the east side of the block.

Yahya’s about 3 quarters a mile away has great middle eastern food -they have a buffet for 16 a person from 6-9pm on Fridays and Saturdays which is totally worth it. the interior is plain jane, but you don't come here for the interior
