BRUNCH WITH A VIEW
While our next spot might be most known for their phenomenal food, their patio is one of our favs in Denver. We’re of course talking about Acova, located in LoHi. Aside from their incredible brunch menu, their patio is one of the most aesthetically pleasing in the city. If you need us, you know where to find us this summer.

Up next is another great brunch option with those sunny patio vibes. Located in Five Points – Mimosas’ covered patio is the perfect place to spend a Sunday Funday while enjoying some homemade brunch favorites and next-level mimosas.

With their expertly crafted cocktails and recently launched summer menu items, there’s plenty to eat, see, and drink at 54Thirty all summer long.
