Foursquare Tips

  • One recent grits special featured crispy pork belly ($13) that was so much more than slow-braised swine. There were three slices of pig about the size of playing cards. Things got really interesting.
  • Best coffee in town. Get just one pancake. They make huge pancakes. It's one of my favorite spots in the world!
  • Grits rock!!!
  • Blueberry pancake. Do it!
  • Excellent food and service! Try the banana walnut pancakes and the fried egg sandwich!
  • The straws are provided unwrapped and they are put in the glass barehanded. -germaphobe
  • Grits and cornbread huevos rancheros. MMmmm
  • Pancake! Damn!
  • The Universal Breakfast with Korean hanger steak is excellent.
  • Grits were the star but everything was above par. Bacon was thick and perfectly cooked. Pancakes were flavorful. Perfect eggs and tasty potato's.
  • French toast is a little on the sweeter side. Order it before your food, takes ~20
  • Eggs Benedict & The Universal. Probably the best brunch I ever had so far being in Denver && by far the best place to go for brunch. Made me really happy because my fave was the eggs Benedict
  • Best Breakfast joint in North Denver! A must try spot!
  • This quaint little spot is the most delicious! Korean grits are no joke. The flavor of the beef is perfect. Not too spicy, just enough. Pancakes are also amazing! Go here now.
  • Best biscuits I've ever had.
  • It's a pretty plain-vanilla breakfast place, but nicely high quality. More traditional than creative items but done well.
  • Grits are delicious - I chose them over potatoes. Bacon and Korean style steak are also exceptional. I would recommend the veggie eggs Benedict as well - lots of yummy greens - feels very healthy.
  • It's mediocre diner food that's in the middle of nowhere and at the end of a strip mall. If you order tempeh hash they'll be sure to tell you that tempeh isn't egg, which is nice of them.
  • Still my favorite breakfast bevy
  • Everything I've tried was great, my new best breakfast go to place. Collard greens, grits, corned beef, shut the door.
