Amazingly good - Edit

This was so good! I had the City breakfast with tofu, potatoes and a biscuit and gravy. Lots of options, price was reasonable and if you are up for dessert they had scones, cinnamon rolls and a chocolate cupcake. Would definitely recommend.

Pros: Lots of great options and good size meals.

Nice spot - Edit

We went inadvertently for happy hour and got a few drinks and appetizers. Seitan wings and tacos were great, good plain salad and some ok poutine. Poutine had a bit too much sauce. It was pretty cheap due to happy hour. Also got some baked goods from the attached bakery next door, also quite good.

Pros: cheap during happy hour, cool interior and nice staff

Cons: not the best vegan poutine

You'll feel cool here even if you aren't - Edit

Any trip to Denver involves multiple meals at City O' City. The drinks and the food are excellent! I so so so so wish they had a location in Ithaca, NY, where we live! One of my favorite restaurants ever and we travel a lot and have been to a lot of restaurants!!

Rare Find - Edit

Not only was my fiancé able to find vegan chickn and waffles, but they were also gluten free!! All the savory and sweet goodness was there and he left a very happy and satisfied man. I had the vegan ravioli and vegan cheese pretzel. I was not a fan of the cheese sauce because of the coconut flavor as mentioned in other posts. However, my fiancé liked the sauce. My Omni friends liked their pizza and salad but they were not vegan.

Awesome place - Edit

Being a vegan flight attendant, I am always in search of decent vegan food! This place has it all! A delicious bowl of satisfying vegan ramen, friendly staff, nice crowd, laid back atmosphere and cold beer. I will definitely come back, when I'm in town.

Sad Panda - Edit

So this is my second time here and it sucked. The vegan mac and cheese tastes and smells like coconut with some other weirdness. I love coconut, but whatever they did was gross and wrong. The buffalo wings taste like vinegar no spice or other flavors just grease and vinegar. The fries were good though. I wanted to like it, but eww and no. Also would give 0 stars if it let me.

Pros: Vegan options, Fries, Ranch dressing

Cons: Lack of flavor, Gentrified, Horrible parking

Horrible service AGAIN. - Edit

Hint: when someone on crutches comes in and is standing to get takeout, don’t ignore them and walk away instead of helping them or even acknowledging them. I worked in the service industry for over 10 years and there is no excuse for the crappy service for carry out EVERY TIME.

Pros: good food

Cons: horrible service , disrespectful workers

outstanding local coffee and bar restaurant - Edit

This restaurant rocks! It has two sides, a coffee breakfast style side, and bar side. Both sides serve the same full menu. It is almost all vegan, but I think they do have egg options and dairy for the coffee. I had the vegan pastrami sandwich with sautéed greens in mustard sauce. The ‘pastrami’ was amazing, tasted like the real thing other than no fat on it. The sandwich had sauerkraut and horseradish, and served on marbled rye. It is a knife and fork sandwich. I highly recommend it. I’m in town for three days, and this place will be my lunch each day (Watercourse for dinner).

Pros: Fun hip atmosphere , Great food

Great Place for Vegan Bar Food - Edit

I like to stop in every time I come to Denver. As a vegan drinker the one thing I crave the most at a brunch, the Bloody Mary, is often the one thing that can't be made Vegan. Not to at CIty O' City. Get the spicy Bloody Mary,made with house made Jalapeno infused vodka. The Tempeh Bacon Hash and Breakfast Burrito are my go-to items for brunch and they never disappoint. The seiten wings are great, as are the onion rings. The City O' Burger for dinner is a great option if you're in the mood. I did find the vegan mac and cheese to be watery and not worth the cost.

Overall, a great spot if you are looking for Vegan Bar Food

Pros: Nice Vibe, Vegan Bloody Mary, Great Location

Cons: Serves Dairy

good food, generally mediocre service - Edit

The food here is good, people we take here for the first time are almost always happy. The breakfast burrito and biscuits and gravy are fantastic. The service, however, is very hit or miss. There are a couple servers who have been around for awhile and they are excellent, but some of the servers are lackluster.

Pros: amount of food for the price, atmosphere , food is fantastic

Cons: service can go either way

Hope to get back to Denver and City o City again.

So many vegan choices at o e destination - Edit

We ate appetizers and entrees, and all were excellent. Our appetizers included: bbq seitan wings, kimchi pancakes, and a hot pretzel. Delicious, varied and huge appetizers. Our entrees included: quinoa veggie burgers with fabulous topping, arepas, and cauliflower sausage tacos. Service was excellent.

Pros: Vegan option in Downtown Denver, Vegan choices packed in this menu, Every ingredient, topping, seasoning is amazing

Cons: Noisy even when not full of patrons, Expect to wait in a line during peak times

Super tasty and trendy - Edit

This is a great part of Denver. The menu features dishes from the tastiest countries around the world, such as South Korea, Mexico, and Italy. The waffles are fantastic, and they always have a new Waffle of the Week (WOW) to look forward to. I love this place. The only downside is they go super heavy on the salt, onions, garlic. Always a great place to go with friends, sure to be fun and satisfy all.

Pros: Downtown – easy to access location , Great people, Staff always fun and friendly

Cons: Too much salt and oil in ingredients., Busy, we need more vegan restaurants in Denver!, They can be busy, but it means they're good!

Try it - Edit

There were tons of choices and if it wasn't vegan, almost everything on the menu could be made vegan. Must be a local favorite because we went in there on a Sunday at 2 p.m. and there was a 30-40 minute wait. I had the bbq bowl with seitan and it was so good. Best vegan mac and cheese I've had in a restaurant.

Casual and Good - Edit

Very popular--went on a Sunday night around 6, if we would have waited for a table it would have been an hour. We sat at the coffee bar (they also have a cocktail bar) and had the best server (Sam Olken). After much deliberation, decided on Miso Cauliflower & Shishito Peppers and a Chipotle Quinoa Bowl. Both were flavorful, but the Quinoa bowl lacked color and the vegetables were sparse. I don't even remember seeing any except for the greens. The dessert was s'mores in a small ball jar-over-the-top sweet and hard to keep myself to "just a taste". I will be back to try the Pumpkin Curry Pasta and the Udon Noodle Bowl.

Pros: Great service from Sam, Lively young crowd , Perfect portion sizes

Cons: Noisy, Cluttered, You might have to pay to park

Yummy vegan options - Edit

I ate here for breakfast one day and lunch another day. I give the food 4-1/2 stars.. We shared a waffle and a skillet for breakfast. For lunch we had fried ravioli (turns out they aren't my kind of thing), curried carrot soup, roasted beet and cauliflower salad and some kind of rice bowl. All of that was very tasty. Breakfast was fast and easy. Lunch took a long time. I think we waited almost an hour for the food and then had to scarf it down since we had to be somewhere. It's definitely a super casual place. BTW, we didn't get dessert here but it turns out that the vegan bakery literally around the corner supplies some of their desserts. I had stopped in there while waiting for our lunch and everything I bought there is super delicious (Make. Believe Bakery. I will review them under their listing.

Pros: Wide variety of vegan options, Open long hours

Cons: Long wait times during peak hours

Great food, great service! - Edit

Recommended by a friend, this place was amazing! It was really busy, so had to wait a little for space and ended up eating at the bar, but still totally worth it! All the dishes we had were fantastic, especially the Wings from the appetizers list. They were really flavorful! I would highly recommend this place when visiting Denver.

Favourite Denver spot for Vegan food - Edit

I love City o' City. It's the noisier, hipster sister restaurant to the famous Watercourse.

Salads, pizza, and breakfast options are all amazing. The best items I've had there are: biscuits and gravy (the biscuits have shreds of carrot and zucchini in them and a totally amazing "sausage" vegan gravy), crispy breakfast potatoes, tempeh bacon hash (loaded with yummy veggies), and the vegan version of the Sardou sandwich. They have various desserts available and their bakery items are all excellent (and mostly all vegan) -- the infamously delicious ding-dong cupcake is the same as at Watercourse.

Note: while the Watercourse is all vegan, City o' City does serve eggs and cheese on some items (all clearly marked on the menu) so it's a nice breakfast option for omnis. We've taken egg-eating relatives here and they've loved the food just as much as the vegans in the family. It's also extremely crowded especially on weekends and noisy. Be prepared to bring a good book with you because you'll be waiting. It's so worth it though.

I'm glad I don't live next door to this place or I'd weigh 900 pounds.
