ohmigawd you must eat here! - Edit

Ok, I’ve been in Denver for three days. I’ve eaten here four times (and three at City oh City). This place is the real deal. If you are within 100 miles of Denver and don’t eat here, you have only yourself to blame. This is AMAZING comfort food, and all vegan. I can’t say enough good about it, I just wish we had one in Sacramento. Of the things I have had, the cauliflower wings, homemade burger, breakfast sandwich, sautéed greens, and candied yams are amazing. The Atlas burger was amaze balls. (Ok, I don’t remember exactly what it was, but I trust someone posted a pic of the menu). I think it was tempeh bacon, avocado, fried onion, and onion jam. Ohmigawd it was to kill for. Sorry, bad vegan pun. Still, do yourself a favor and try this place. You won’t regret it. I guarantee it.

restaurant has changed a lot - Edit

I have been going to Watercourse for 5 years now and have seen a lot of change, both good and bad. The food is hit or miss with new dishes, I’ve had some great food and also some very bad food. The macaroni and cheese is absolutely terrible and flavorless. The burgers and salads are great, as are the cauliflower wings. The worst part about this restaurant is the service. They tend to take away favorite menu items and replace them with new options quite often. Some wait staff are great, some are awful.

Pros: food can be good, atmosphere

Cons: change in menu too often, wait staff

Vegan choices in Downtown Denver - Edit

This restaurant is in walking distance of the main business/hotel district. The menu is packed with vegan options. Cuisine is a level above urban/street eats. Entrees are delicious and come with choices of sides that are equally good. Visit during off hours so you don’t have to wait as this is a popular destination.

Pros: Full vegan menu; lots of choices , Great service and nice setting , Menu reflects broad range of cuisine styles

Cons: During peak periods, you will have to wait

Tasty Mac and Cheese! :) - Edit

Amazing selection of food! I had the Mac and Cheese with steamed kale and it was delicious. Also ordered the Korean BBQ Seitan Wings that were decent, but could've used some more flavor. Overall loved the space and the staff was very friendly.

Amazing! - Edit

I love eating at all-vegan restaurants. It’s so refreshing to know you can have anything on the menu! Sadly, they are few and far in between. And the few all-vegan restaurants I’ve been to haven’t had too much to offer on the menu. I was blown away by this place! There menu is huge and varied and everything sounded amazing. I ended up getting the Cuban sandwich with fries—so delicious—followed by a piece of coffee cake (it’s huge by the way...for at least 2 people!). Coffee cake was so creamy and divine. Can’t wait to visit CO again to go back to this place! So impressed!

Pros: Large varied menu , Cool atmosphere , Delicious!

Cons: Can get a little pricey—it’s because you want to o

road trip treat - Edit

We stopped here on the way from Denver International down to Colorado Springs and had the most amazing first meal for our Colorado vacation. Cauliflower wings app, then the breakfast burrito for me and the burger for my husband. All of it was perfect!

One of my favorites - Edit

Everyone else has already said what needs to be said. This place is delicious. They serve breakfast options all day long which is a huge plus in my book. They have an awesome selection of food, drinks and dessert. This is definitely one of the best vegan restaurants I've been to.
