Two Dog Diner's chefs update classic American diner dishes with a contemporary twist. A breakfast menu—served all day—features applesauce-and-sour-cream-flanked potato pancakes ($8.95) and a Veggie Dog combo ($9.95) packed with vegetarian sausage patties harvested from wild roaming tofu. The lunch menu quells midday hunger shrieks with a bacon-topped grilled prawn club ($11.95) or a vegetarian portobello and fontina sandwich ($8.95). For dinner, feast on fish 'n' chips paired with house-made tartar sauce ($14.75), which obediently await mouths on the diner’s sleek countertop next to brightly colored salt and pepper shakers.
For the four Denver residents who founded The LocaL, their community is the driving force behind their hearty eats. The team’s commitment to all things local begins in their kitchen, where chefs forge Mexican-inspired cuisine classics for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Throughout the day, the staff brews coffee made with Denver-roasted Pablo’s beans, arranges strips of antibiotic- and hormone-free bacon alongside local eggs, and grills burger patties formed from The Local’s proprietary blend of local beef.
Within their welcoming dining space, cheery green walls and a '50s diner–style counter set the scene for leisurely feeding frenzies. On the outdoor patio, guests can sample the diner’s 12 flavors of housemade ice cream under the protective cover of umbrellas.
