Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant

“if you're looking for a hipstery / people watching place with a chill vibe that's vegan and vegetarian, City O' City is it. they do brunch / breakfast as well as dinner, so it's great if you are exclusively looking for non-meat dishes. my favs here are the seitan buffalo wings and pastrami sandwich. added bonus, it's only a half mile away due west of the Airbnb, not too far from the Denver Art Museum and History Colorad Center. ”
