Brunch at Linger

Linger is our favorite place t eat in Denver. I have written posts about them before, and our affinity for them boils down to two things: incredible vegan food and amazing hospitality.

Brunch is a great time for friends and family to gather for good food and good conversation while having time afterwards to enjoy a whole day. Now you can do brunch at Linger!

Last week I was living in dream land when I was invited to enjoy a press tasting of their new brunch. Linger now serves brunch from 10:00am - 2:00pm on Sundays.

Because I have been away from the drinking culture for awhile, I had forgotten that a good brunch had good drinks. I didn't try the three, $3.00 cocktails offered at brunch as a special yet everyone around me did and enjoyed them. The $3.00 cocktails include the Linger Mimosa, Bloody Mary and the Coconut Fizz. For those of us who don't drink, they also make delish mocktails.

I started out with the sopapilla and could have just eaten those for the rest of the tasting. Light, delicious and a great addition to any brunch. And available vegan. Two please!

A great accompaniment to the sopapilla is the Anti Milkshake. Naturally vegan. Made with almonds so if you have an allergy you can try the Green Gringo Citrus Horchata which is also vegan.

Next I tried the Chorizo Tacos which are made with Soyrizo and topped off with an avocado aioli. I instantly realized that like their vegan duck buns for dinner, I could easily eat two or three of these at a sitting.

A brunch offering that is similar to their dinner menu is their Breakfast Dosa. We love the Dosa at dinner time as this version is perfect. Complete with a little maple syrup and it's the perfect addition to your table full of brunch delicacies.

Still hungry? You can simply add a side of Brussels Sprouts!

One of the many things we love about Linger is that their menu changes frequently. Don't worry. They always have a wonderful assortment of vegan deliciousness. My fingers are crossed for a vegan French Toast! Mmmm.

Linger is at 2030 West 30th Avenue in Denver's LoHi neighborhood. Their phone number is 303.993.3120. Reservations are highly recommended.


  1. Brussel sprouts and brunch cocktails? I'm in.

  2. We visited Linger based on your recommendation on Vegan Coloradical. It did not disappoint! Such a cool setting and the food was inventive and mouthwatering. I didn't post about it on my blog, because they were all grainy, nighttime pictures, but it's definitely a place I'd visit again. I'd also like to visit their sister restaurant the next time I'm in town.

    I knew the place was a converted mortuary, but an architect friend of mine creeped me out when he told me that those sliding, round bars underneath the tall tables were repurposed from mortuary-days. They used to roll bodies in on them. Creepy!

  3. So glad you liked it. We love Root Down too, it's more of a special occasion place for us. And if you love Mexican food definitely try Tarasco's next time you're here! Thanks for reading our blog!

    1. Good to know! I love Mexican food. I'll add it to the list! Thanks!
