Dessert: It may be an unusual combination--coffee shop, pub and bike repair shop--but it fits right into Denver's trendy yet utilitarian and sports-oriented aesthetic. Low-key Denver Bicycle Cafe is, first and foremost, a place where you can meet and converse with friends or sit alone and commune with your laptop during the day, all while sipping espresso, cold brew, French Press or other specialty coffees or teas. Eclectic music plays but doesn't assault your eardrums. The compact menu includes baked goods, tamales, breakfast burritos and other items from local vendors. The beer, which is poured starting at 5 p.m. when coffee production shuts down, has an emphasis on Colorado brews. If you want to bring your own food or order in from a neighborhood restaurant, you can do that, too. This place is all about community.

Local Expert Christine Loomis Says:
Dessert: "To get your fix of excellent coffee, go before 5 p.m. as that's when the coffee shuts down (along with the WiFi) and the bar opens."
Best Value: "Bikes can be dropped off and picked up anytime between 6 a.m. and midnight; the coffee shop shuts down at 5 p.m. (along with the WiFi) and that's when the bar opens."
Best for Dessert Because: Coffeehouse, pub with microbrews and bicycle repair shop--Denver Bicycle Cafe has a niche all its own.
Recommended as Best Value Because: Nothing on the menu hits $10 and most items, both food and drinks, are in the $3-$5 range.
