You don't have to trudge deep into the woods to find Kolache Cabin. The tiny, wood-walled, walk-up shop is located right at the corner of Alameda and Santa Fe, and getting your hands on one of the fresh baked Eastern European buns is as easy as driving up to the window. Chefs whip up several varieties of the pillowy buns each day, infusing them with savory stuffings such as pulled pork or eggs, bacon, cheese, and jalapenos. They even offer a kolache stuffed with sausage and gravy, which they bill as "biscuits and gravy you can eat with your hands," as opposed to the classic version which is traditionally served with chopsticks.
Since 1987, Buffalo Bill's has been whisking boxes of hot wings to the doors of Denver. Before delivery, the wings are tossed in one of 15 sauces, which range from mild and sweet to absolutely fiery, depending on if the customer wants to decimate piles of napkins. Pleasant lemon-herb and sweet-and-sour sauces share space with three types of barbecue sauce and seven different levels of hot sauce. Buffalo Bill's also delivers Pudge Bros. pizza, custom-made or in specialty variations.
With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company?s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.
For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320?420 calories each.
The sun has set on the town of Denver, but the neon sign on Winchell’s Donut House is still aglow. The familiar smell of baking donuts wafts out from the 24-hour establishment's door, drawing night owls in for steaming cups of coffee and french crullers, jelly donuts, and moist chocolate muffins. A shift change occurs come daytime; breakfasters replace nocturnal dwellers, chatting over freshly made bagels, spicy egg sandwiches, and meaty burritos before the lunch crowd shows up. The donut shop also offers delivery services throughout the local area, transporting freshly made pastries directly to a home, office, or secret rendezvous point at an all-vegetable convention.
Dark woods dominate the décor at My Other Bar, a stark contrast to the bar top, which is covered in license plates from across the country. That spirit of travel pervades the menu: an eclectic hodgepodge of small plates, wood-fired pizzas, and gourmet burgers. A number of dishes pass through My Other Bar's wood oven, which bakes portobello mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese and pies such as the salami-, roasted tomato-, and red chili-topped pomodorini e diavola. Pizzas can also be customized with ingredients such as roasted chicken, goat cheese, and baby and tween arugula. The same goes for customizable half-pound burgers, whose toppings include fried eggs and artichokes. Red and white wines, top-shelf spirits, and seasonal draft beers complement feasts, which energize patrons for rounds of billiards on My Other Bar's twin pool tables or games in its modest arcade.
