For a classic downtown Denver locale, renowned for its quality and convenience, the Market at Larimer Square offers the historic coolness of a large city with a laid back Denver vibe.
It’s smack dab in the middle of downtown, making it easy to hit before or after a run or ride. It’s conveniently located off the Cherry Creek bike path, and yes, they have free wi-fi.
They also have alcohol, a full coffee bar, a full deli case, and prepared foods that make for good to-go meals. They make baked goods and sandwiches on site, as well. It’s really a bodega style with the quality and personality of a medium-sized city, and the bakery itself is nothing to scoff at, as it has gained fame among locals, especially for its cakes.
They have late hours, which is really convenient for locals and travelers alike: Sun-Thurs: 6 am - 10pm; Fri & Sat: 6 am - 12am. And don’t forget about their catering business. These guys have been around since 1983, so clearly they've got it figured out. Some even say it was the first espresso bar between New York and L.A., and they've infused it with their own blend of New Jersey/Jewish heritage, of which they are quite proud.
It’s a great option for any downtown visitor and has the bike and dog friendly vibes that keep popping up in this city time and time again. Parking is “downtown style” so be aware of that and try to walk or bike there. Or take a bike share or a pedi-cab.
