Great Crepes. I had the Boulder. Very tasty, crepe wrapper keeps the contents hot. Good coffee. Desert tarts were a bit dry and disappointing. Otherwise great.

The selection was OK but nothing particularly creative. I like homemade pastries and they have the usual things you would expect but nothing with a clever variation. I am a bakery fanatic and go to as many as I can in every city I visit. My title pretty much sums us up that it is OK but not great. I'm... More

Hi Twowilliams! We are very thankful that you like bakeries as much as we do. We appreciate your review and that you traveled to see us. It's true. After the holidays, we need to focus on our efforts to restock and keep that showcase full. When I take a bit a time after the holidays to close some loose ends... More

A comfortable cup of coffee with your breakfast and then a TREAT!! This is your spot for a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon or morning, but make sure to take home an extra treat from the bakery shelves as they are delicious!!

My boyfriend and I visited Katherine's twice recently on a trip to Denver, both times it was delicious. We tried both sweet and savoury crepes which were amazing and a gorgeous lemon meringue tart. I don't know if I'll ever return to Denver but if I do I'll definitely be going back here!

Went to Katherine's on my wife's recommendation and was not disappointed. Had breakfast there. I had a piece of quiche and my wife had an omelette. The quiche was delicious, the fruit was ripe and ready and my wife's omelette was light and fluffy. Great coffee too. Had one of their Napoleon pastries to go and it was the best... More

We always return to Katherine's for breakfast/brunch. The offerings are varied and have special ingredients. The beverages are special. It is quiet and cozy and the staff aims to please.

I had a side of scramble eggs and a side of hash browns. The eggs are not out of a carton, but cracked with a little cream and fried in what I think is bacon grease. The hash browns too are cooked in the same oil. Mouthwatering is only way to say it. Wonderful! My French Cinnamon roll lightly dusted... More

The man seating people was curt and unfriendly, so we reconsidered our restaurant choice while waiting to be seated. We ended up staying and our waitress was very nice and the food was great so maybe he is the only negative factor.

My parents and I stopped here two mornings in a row while on vacation in Denver. What a cute family owned French bakery. I had been wanting to have some crepes and they have wonderful banana Nutella crepes! I had them both mornings. My parents had frittata and enjoyed theirs as well. They also tried both versions of French toast.... More

Recently had Katherine's cater a party. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the preparation of the food. Yet, the French cuisine (Vegetable Quiche, Macaroons as well as the Almond and Chocolate Croissants were DELICIOUS!) The cheese on the cheese platter was good. However, one was spicy (which I like) but too spicy for some people so I wouldn't put that on... More
