Devil's Food Bakery and Cookery

First things first: Happy World Vegetarian Day to all our fellow veggie lovers! Hug your neighborhood vegetarian today & enjoy delicious vegetables in their honor.

Sometimes the best things happen accidentally. My friend & I explored the Washington Park area in Denver a couple of weeks ago & decided we wanted to go to brunch. His original idea was to go to a corner restaurant, however, when we arrived we realized it wasn’t open. So we took a stroll down the street & discovered Devil’s Food Bakery & Cookery — what a wonderful discovery it was! On quaint Gaylord Street, Devil’s Food is the perfect place to grab delicious coffee & pastry. If you’re looking for a sit down meal no worries, they have a full, delicious menu. I went for brunch & was excited to try the many vegetarian options they offer. After drooling a little while reading the menu I settled on the Quinoa Cakes: Lemon ricotta, zucchini & thyme quinoa cakes on arugula with a poached egg, romesco sauce & pecorino romano on top.

It was as delicious as it looks! The egg was cooked perfectly, the quinoa cakes were crunch on the outside, soft on the inside & the arugula brought everything together beautifully. My taste buds were ecstatic! We liked our meal so much we went back a second time before I flew back home, it was that good! The second time there I had Belgium Waffles with fresh fruit. The batter was light, the fruit was really sweet & fresh, a really nice treat on a Sunday morning. One of my favorite things about Devil’s Food Bakery & Cookery (besides my meals) is their commitment to staying local & supporting businesses nearby. After your meal walk down a couple of blocks to Washington Park & enjoy it, it’s gorgeous & worth the trip.
