10 Yanni's
A pleasant waitstaff and consistently well-prepared Greek dishes have made Yanni's the talk of the town. The menu encourages diners to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Defined Yanni style, that means goodies like moussaka, lamb chops, dolmades, and tiropita, an intricate mixture of three cheeses wrapped in phyllo. During pleasant weather, you can enjoy patio dining and leg of lamb cooked on the outdoor spit. Of course, you can't leave without trying the obligatory baklava. (303-692-0404)

9 Common Grounds
Local artwork adorns exposed brick walls in this Highland Park area coffee shop. Regulars know it as a good place to order a fragrant coffee drink and a pastry and spend time catching up with old friends. Live music and poetry readings are often scheduled in the evenings, and books abound so you can peruse one of your favorites while sipping a steaming cup of hot chocolate and munching on a bagel. WiFi available. (303-458-5248)

8 The Market at Larimer Square
Stop by The Market for a wide assortment of salads, sandwiches, and sweets. The casual café draws a diverse crowd (it's great for people-watching!), and there's something for everyone. The drink menu boasts an extensive list of coffees and teas, perfect for sipping at one of the small tables or taking along with you. Pair it with a pastry or a rich slice of cake for the best effect. Outdoor dining available on pleasant days. (303-534-5140)

7 Moe's Broadway Bagel
Moe's Bagel keeps breakfast simple but interesting — you'll find variety in both type of bread and in luscious spread. Try a plain bagel topped with lox spread or goat cheese, or opt for a poppy-seed bagel skimmed with honey. From whole wheat to chocolate chip, you're sure to find an offering to fit your taste buds and lifestyle. The bright interior and upbeat music will help get you going early in the morning.

6 Ellyngton's
Although its regular breakfast fare is delicious, Ellyngton's gets many accolades for its sumptuous Sunday brunch. The acclaim is well-deserved, as the champagne buffet ably indicates. A veteran waitstaff and live jazz work their magic, and the food has an allure all its own. Fresh fruit, shrimp, salmon, cheeses, and breads burden the buffet table while steaming dishes of light pancakes and perfectly prepared omelets top linen-covered tables. During the week, the business set populates Ellyngton's. (303-297-3111)

5 Rheinlander Bakery
This bakery believes in doing things the old-fashioned way — from scratch. You won't find anything pre-packaged or processed, just sinfully delicious homemade goodies. Seven-layer tortes, hand-decorated cookies, and traditional layer cakes line the shelves, and German and European recipes are the specialty. (The kitchen has been perfecting them since 1963.) They even offer a full line of sugar-free and low-carb desserts. (303-467-1810, 866-479-2253)

4 Wazee Supper Club
Martinis, great pizza, and a sassy waitstaff — sounds like the makings of a fantastic meal! In addition to tasty pizzas, the menu also boasts sandwiches, sides, and of course, desserts. An ideal spot for dinner or after-hours drinks. (303-623-9518)

3 Le Central
Le Central draws rave reviews from local francophiles. You'll concur after setting foot in a comfortable dining room that transports guests to the French countryside. Flower-adorned tables dot the intimate dining room, and the menu includes salads as well as pork, chicken, beef, and seafood entrees. Great wine list with reasonable prices. Dine outdoors on the porch during warm weather. Excellent Saturday and Sunday brunch. (303-863-8094)

2 Las Delicias
You'll be glad you dropped in to Las Delicias as you order up Mexican fare such as burritos, tacos, tamales, and enchiladas. Breakfast burritos are a great choice in the mornings, but later in the day the combination plates are an especially good deal. Authentic flavor shines through in dishes like Chuletas de Puerco, Carne Adobada, or Carnitas Estilo Michoacan. (303-839-5675)

1 King's Land
Locals know that this West Denver establishment is the authority on dim sum. Fresh seafood and perfectly-prepared chicken tidbits line carts that are rolled through the spacious dining room. Choose from a tantalizing selection of tasty shrimp balls, airy dumplings, and crisp spring rolls. A disco ball hangs above, and bright lights dot the interior landscape. (303-975-2399)
