Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, opened its ninth location in the Denver metro area on Wednesday, and we were right there in the mix(ed drinks)!

With the long-awaited grand opening of its DTC location, Snooze -- Colorado's favorite brunch spot -- grew in numbers on Wednesday, May 2, and naturally, we at OCN had to check it out. (Anything for the community, after all. Our primary focus is you!)

Two of us were first-time Snoozers, while the other two had various Snooze experience. Like all Snoozes that have come before it, the DTC location's modern decor is bright, sunny, and cheerful, even on a rainy day. And since the chain is known for its long waits (they don't take reservations and the restaurant is literally THAT GOOD), every additional location that the Snooze gods add to the Denver metro area is sure to help lighten the load. We were seated right away! First up? Drinks! English Garden Mimosas and coffee! [gallery type="rectangular" ids="36664,36647"] The unspoken rule at Snooze is that a server can award a table of their choice with a free pancake during their shift. And we must have been really friendly because two different servers gave us a free pancake! (Score!) [gallery type="rectangular" ids="36650,36658"]
This worked out great for us because we had each been perusing the menu with the eternal question: do I go with savory or sweet?? The free pancakes took care of the "sweet"! Both -- the "Pineapple Upside Down" and the "Banana Split" -- were absolutely delectable. 10 out of 10, recommend!! And then? Let there be food ... (all reasonably priced!!!) The Snooze Classic (eggs, bacon, toast, and hashbrowns) ... [caption id="attachment_36670" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] The Snooze Classic[/caption] Juan's Breakfast Tacos ...

A massive Breakfast Burrito (half green chile and half ranchero) ...

[caption id="attachment_36656" align="aligncenter" width="750"] Corned Beef Hash[/caption] We obviously enjoyed it! [gallery type="rectangular" ids="36660,36657"] And now we're back in the office, planning our next "business meeting" at Snooze.
