Sure, we can tout this grand place all day long... but here's a few samples of what the "pros" have to say...
Lines form early at this year-old, retro-fab diner, where you’ll find all your faves for breakfast and lunch. Chorizo-stuffed breakfast burritos and cheesy hash browns are a must, as are the sweet potato pancakes – so fluffy and sweet, you’ll wonder where they’ve been all your life.

In the 3rd Annual Award Ceremony, Snooze along with our designers Xan Creative were acknowledge for the "Wicked Little Details" that accentuate this funky restaurant in the budding Ballpark Neighborhood.
"We all benefit from the business owners who went the extra mile to invest time and money in their property. They are helping to create a culture of good design in our city and encouraging other business owners to follow suit." - Mayor Hickenlooper.

Ask any urban planner, and they will tell you that the long term goal to developing our city and neighborhoods is through the creation of “unique, vibrant and diverse environments.” As the people gather outside Snooze’s front door on an average Sunday morning, ask any one of them if Denver now has this. You will likely hear yes; along with a description of the world’s best Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

You won’t reach for the snooze button knowing that a glorious breakfast sits in the wait at this fabulously fashionable AM noshery within spitting distance of Coors Field. Go with a gaggle of friends and slip into the groovy half crescent booths or slide into one of the banquettes flanked by retro turquoise and white leather Thunderbird upholstery. The menu is just as cool and kitschy as the décor: caramelized pineapple upside down pancakes the size of saucers, housemade flour tortillas brimming with fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp-edge potatoes, cheese, ranchero salsa and bacon or sausage or the vanilla almond oatmeal brulee.

You'll do anything but fall asleep in this slightly retro and totally gracious tribute to breakfast, where pancakes can be sampled as "flights" and the burrito is bundled with scrambled eggs, shredded potatoes, cheese and (yeow!) green chile sauce. Try to snag table No. 8, a circular booth that looks like a Tilt-O-Whilr on a diet and takes in a great view of the scene.
Snooze is first and foremost a breakfast restaurant, but they also offer an intriguing selection of "a.m. cocktails," a perfect hair-of-the-dog follow-up to a night at the Whiskeybar. The restaurant is cheery and well lit, with a six-seat bar and a number of booths and tables. A "patio" area (a fenced-off portion of sidewalk, actually) has been "coming soon" for the last month. The staff is preternaturally friendly even at 6:30 in the morning. There's always a line out the door on weekends after 8:30 or so, but the food, service, and array of beverages makes Snooze worth the wait.
Snooze An A.M.Eatery is enough to make anyone want to wake up before that alarm goes off. The space is fresh and inviting with a décor that combines a 50’s diner with a modern twist. Great colors, furniture design and wall treatments are terrific with greens, orange, black, blue and steel combining to create an exciting space. Imagine vanilla almond oatmeal brulee, peanut butter pancakes with chocolate and peanut butter chips and dark chocolate sauce, breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, crispy potatoes, jack cheese, avocado and ranchero sauce, pineapple upside down pancakes with chunks of fresh caramelized pineapple and vanilla crème anglaise and cinnamon butter. Salivate at the descriptions------the tastes are better.
