Denver has it going on when it comes to coffeehouses and restaurants specializing in decadent sweets made from scratch. Sure, there's a bit of coffee snobbery, but is perfect coffee such a bad thing to desire? Many of the coffeehouses on this list buy their beans from Colorado roasters, carrying on the focus on local sources that has long been trending on the restaurant and brewery scenes. For your coffee and dessert pleasure, we have a list that includes dedicated coffeehouses, dessert specialists and places that offer both--and then some. Stella's Coffee Haus is a fine example of a traditional coffeehouse, a place where local artists hang their work, local musicians play and friends gather for good coffee and conversation. Wednesday's Pie is only about pies--and serving as the secret entrance to Green Russell, a Denver speakeasy--while Crave Dessert Bar & Lounge offers a spot for late-night sweets and cocktails. The Market at Larimer Square has it all: breakfast, lunch, dinner, a coffee bar, pastries, desserts and hours that span the day and evening. Rooster & Moon designates itself a true public house, a place where people gather for excellent coffee, fresh-baked pastries, sandwiches and evening music with craft brews and cocktails. These inviting places are sprinkled across Denver neighborhoods, so wherever you find yourself when you're craving coffee or sweets, you'll be in luck.
