Since we were staying downtown, we thought this might be a good choice for breakfast rather than eating in hotels. We were really hoping for something wonderful, but it was really, just average. I had one of their skillets, it wasn't really hot and the taste was just average. Really nice waitress but she couldn't bring the rating of this... More

Delectable Egg has a very diverse breakfast menu, and the servings are very large. Most come with a mound of their potatoes, which I don't find that interesting or healthy. Based on reviews, I ordered the Fiesta Skillet, but had a hard time find the interesting ingredients (chorizo, onions, cheddar cheese) among all the potatoes. I would have been better... More

I ordered a ham breakfast crepe. the pastry was hard and dry, the eggs were overcooked, and so were the small bits of ham. My son ordered a traditional breakfast, eggs, bacon (was undercooked) hash browns (they were dry and tasteless) And finally fresh fruit (almost rotten strawberries). The fruit looked like it was picked from the dumpster of a... More

Hubby got up early for a solo breakfast and brought me eggs benedict to go. The only thing I would change is the ham, but I prefer canadian bacon. It was tasty.

I took the Mall Bus from my hotel to Market - VERY easy! Made for a fun first morning in Denver. Got to see most of the mall. Worth the trip as the Denver Omelet breakfast was really good. Some of the best hash browns I've had also. Wait time for food was surprisingly fast. My server, despite it being... More

This was our first brunch stop on our long weekend visit, and I wish we would have gone more than once. My husband and I usually get two dishes and share- we had a skillet with veggies and eggs, and the crunchy peanut butter french toast. I may not remember the exact names of the dishes, but I sure remember... More

If the bottomless mimosas isn't enough to draw you in, then the eggs Benedict will! The food was delicious and filling, and the mimosas were, well, mimosas! I would highly recommend this cute, quaint breakfast joint.

The restaurant is in an old brick building just off lower 16th street mall. Great location. The food is fresh, hot and quickly served. The portion sizes are excellent. This is a great place to go with friends or with children. I have eaten here several times and tried many of their menu items and everything is delicious. They have... More

Pretty big menu, so that was nice. House favorites are marked as are light/healthy options (which I enjoyed). I ended up with an egg white fritata which was good, but nothing amazing. My boyfriend got eggs benedict which were the best we'd ever had! Definitely recommend those. Service was fast, but there was a huge mess-up with our check at... More
