First Review by Jeff M

Disappointing :-( - Edit

I was excited to try Beet Box because of the great reviews, however my breakfast was average at best. I ordered a croissant, my husband got an apple croissant, and we both ordered breakfast sandwiches. Sadly we both found the breakfast sandwich to be very bland. Some herbs in the frittata or even just some hot sauce would have helped.

My croissant was a little stale, like it was made yesterday. That may not be the case, but it wasn't light and flaky. Vegan croissants are pretty hard to find though so this is kind of a beggars-can't-be-choosers scenario. The apple croissant is apple slices wrapped in dough rather than a compote. My husband said the apple was undercooked and not very sweet.

I would consider trying Beet Box in the future for a dessert but not breakfast again. Also I liked the atmosphere but I hope management considers recovering the booths as they're really tattered and uncomfortable.

Pros: Large variety of doughnuts, Ambient music

Cons: Breakfast sandwich is bland, Other sandwiches not served before 11:30am, Booths are badly damaged

Cute + Quirky - Edit

This cafe is everything you'd expect of a vegan pastry joint in Downtown Denver. Leave your prissy at the door, they are about good food and not much else. Doesn't matter bc the pastries are THAT good. We enjoyed a bear claw, a donut, and an avocado melt. The sandwich was my favorite, but my palate is geared towards savory so that's not surprising. My husband with the sweet tooth enjoyed the pastries quite a bit! It was the perfect warm up on a drizzly day.

Excellent, more of a take out place... - Edit

We stopped by for the desserts/sweets. The chocolate doughnut with coconut was excellent (although cake-like). My daughter got a croissant (she said it was "solid") and the cinnamon bun (excellent). We also got a sandwich (Cremini panini) which was excellent. The surrounding area is fair.

Pros: excellent desserts and sandwiches, vegan!

Cons: Better for take-out or a quick bite

vegan can be bad for you! - Edit

Who knew? With such tasty doughnuts it's a one-way trip to couch potato-dom. I had the avocado melt, chai and a maple pumpkin doughnut. All were superb.

Awesome mix of sweet and savory treats! - Edit

My husband and I had the raspberry donut and the mushroom panini. It was amazing. Jam packed panini. The bread was by far the best bread I've ever had. ??

nuts 4 doughnuts - Edit

Oh my goodness the doughnuts!!! They are both ridiculously decadent and somehow give you the impression that they're not so bad for you? Also had the avocado melt. The cashew based cheese was different from what I expected, better than I expected.

Vegan Bakery -enough said - Edit

I had my first vegan croissant and it was excellent. Awesome selection of baked goods and I tried just about everything! I wish I had been able to go earlier on my trip as I would have loved to sample some of the delicious looking cakes. It was a bit of a walk from my downtown hotel but worth it. Staff were super friendly too.

Pros: taste, variety

lovely treats and desserts. we bought a ton of pastries and donuts, the kids devoured them before we got home. donuts were more like cooked cakes then fried-dough.

Pros: friendly and helpful staff, food was great, variety

Cons: not donuts, really iced cakes

Spoiled with choices - Edit

We came here looking for treats and were overwhelmed with options. Everything is vegan; many are gluten-free as well if that's your thing. We shared an apple croissant, which the staff warmed up for us and was very good. We also got a cherry-ginger scone, a loaf of chai zucchini bread, and their signature beet brownie to go for later. They were all scrumptious. The staff are such nice and friendly people too. Definitely swing by if you got a chance!

Pros: delicious treats, nice friendly staff

tasty treats in Denver - Edit

Stopped by after lunch for a treat. Nothing real impressive, vegan bakery, sold out of nearly everything. Donuts were pretty good. I'd suggest it if you were craving sweets and didn't feel like cooking.

Pros: friendly

Cons: sold out of nearly everything

Get to Beet Box in Denver! - Edit

First and foremost, the food at Beet Box Bakery and Cafe is amazing! I opted for a cremini panini, coconut mylk chai latte, and a pumpkin maple donut (which comes with a side of chips). The food is extremely good value for $, though we got our food to go, the Bakery/Cafe has a chilled atmosphere. The person who served me was a little unfriendly at first, but hey, we all have bad days! Our food arrived quickly and we given friendly goodbyes and smiles as we left. I highly recommend to vegans/non-vegans! :)

Pros: Amazing Food, Value for $$$, Chilled atmosphere

Cons: Service a little unfriendly at first

all vegan bakery - Edit

We loved Beet Box. Delicious pastries, friendly staff, coffee, lunch options, free wifi and more! For breakfast, we shared a tomato basil tart, a spinach mushroom croissant, a muffin, a donut, and a slice of cake with lattes. Yum! We came back for lunch to have the cremini panini and the avocado melt along with another donut. We took two mini cakes to go, a raspberry chocolate and a lavender lemon. And I came back on my way to the airport to grab a mushroom tart and latte. Can't get enough of this place!

Pros: all vegan bakery, pastries and lunch, nice staff
