Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh earthbound meal with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a $40 reusable gift card good toward locally sourced breakfast and lunch fare at The Local.

The latest enterprise from the owners of Washington Park Grille and Max Grill, The Local is a casual neighborhood diner with an inventive repertoire of locally sourced eats and homemade desserts. Drop in for pumpkin-banana pancakes—made with buttermilk batter, caramelized pineapple, walnuts, and cajeta syrup ($7.50)—which pair well with a mug of Pablo's locally roasted coffee ($1.39–$3.75 for 16 oz.). For lunch or an early dinner, wrap your appetite around a Cajun-seasoned black and blue burger, made from Sterling Silver beef with blue cheese and onion-colored grilled onions ($7.25), or use it to unwrap a chicken tinga burrito, filled with tender pulled chicken, black beans, pepper-jack cheese, and a kick-inducing pork-based green chili sauce ($7.98).

The Local's brick-walled intimacy provides a great backdrop for sampling the fruits of Denver's culinary craftsmen. Sidle up to the counter to chat with the friendly waitstaff, and solidify your bond by tasting a homemade pastry or indulging in 1 of 12 ice-cream flavors prepared in the diner kitchen by local snowmen.


Nine Yelpers give The Local an average of three stars:

The LocaL

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.
