Linger is one of the top vegan restaurants in all of Colorado. They specialize in vegan food and are known for their friendly staff and bright, vibrant atmosphere. They have a number of amazing vegan dishes for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner! The sopapillas are completely vegan, light, and delicious. Chorizo tacos have seasoned Soyrizo topped off with avocado aioli — so delicious you’ll want to eat more than one! Their vegan duck buns, Breakfast Dosa, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potato waffle fries are all vegan favorites here, too. The location has a cool rooftop bar with views of downtown Denver, too. The owner was so successful that he has opened up a number of other restaurants in Denver, including El Five next door.

El Five is a vegan restaurant located on the 5th floor above the LoHi. It has awesome views of the Downtown Denver skyline and you can watch the sunset over the city over dinner. Grab a seat on the open-air patio with a group of friends while you drink and nosh on the vegan dishes here. The menu has sharing platters — a number of which are vegan-friendly, such as the spread platter with charred carrot hummus, artichokes, and more. The Ash Roasted Carrots are delicious as is the Charred Baba Ghanoush and the Green Sofrito Paella. When in doubt, just ask your server which dishes are vegan-friendly. They are always happy to offer their wisdom!

Tamayo is a cool Mexican restaurant in Larimer Square with a huge rooftop deck and panoramic views of the mountains. It's one of Chef Richard Sandoval's restaurants and he does his best to live up to his reputation as the “Father of Modern Mexican Cuisine.” Look over the list of 100 tequilas and agave-based spirits while you wait for your food. A margarita might be just what you need to complement your meal! Tamayo has a large menu with a number of vegan options and you can ask the kitchen to hold the cream and cheese on many of the vegetarian options to make them vegan-friendly.

From the same owner as Linger, Vital Root is a fast-casual vegetarian eatery that feels like a funky diner. This restaurant is all about playful flavors that delight the palate, like the charcoal coconut dosa or the Devils on Unicorns. The space is really laid-back and fun and includes two patios for outdoor dining as well as an outdoor herb garden, upcycled from cafeteria trays.

This vegan restaurant was one of the first of its kinds and opened its doors in 1998! They are still around because people love the all-vegan fare and the large menu, including hearty breakfasts like biscuits and gravy, and burritos with a vegan version of Denver’s green chile. Later in the day you can find warm comfort foods like Tofish’n’Chips and Beet Wellington. Their North Capitol HIll location makes them a hots pot in the evenings and on weekends.

Here you’ll find breakfast served all day long, so you can head over for your morning coffee and breakfast or wrap up an evening with a late-night whiskey and snacks. The menu is expansive and has pretty much everything you could dream of, including consistently changing specials like the Thai peanut BBQ tofu or the delicious seitan wings. If you’re in the mood for fried food, try the “chicken” and waffles — the chicken is actually fried cauliflower. City, O' City is the perfect place to bring a group of friends and indulge in delicious vegan treats.
