We ❤ Denver! Here at Compassionate Closet, we are happy to be a part of the growing awareness of plant-based living in Denver and beyond! Whether you are native, new, or just visiting, we wanted to share a few of our favorite local veg-friendly spots:
NOOCH Vegan Market: Colorado's only all-vegan grocery store!! Located at Ellsworth & Broadway, they offer groceries, snacks, grab 'n go, books, body care, kitchenware, gifts, and accessories. Their extensive refrigerated and frozen section is not to miss - time to try all those artisan vegan cheeses! Plus, chocolates, candy, jerky… and more!
Vital Root: Need to get some veggies in your system? Vital Root’s produce-focused cuisine is just the thing. While the restaurant is vegetarian, nearly everything on the menu can be made vegan. Try and grab a spot on the back patio with the herb garden!
Beet Box: Who doesn't love donuts, breads, and pastries?! Beet Box has mastered sweet and savory treats, as well as a small sandwich menu and your favorite loafs to-go. Our favorite is the turtle brownie – a fudgy brownie covered in caramel and walnuts!
Zero Waste Market: Get everything you need without the packaging! This is the perfect place to stock up on eco-friendly, reusable items, as well as all your bulk home and body needs. Located in the Stanley Marketplace, why not pick up some bagels and homemade vegan cream cheese while you’re here?
Watercourse Foods: Denver's original vegan restaurant since 1998! Come for the cauliflower wings, stay for the chill atmosphere. Much of their menu is also gluten-free! Watercourse is a staple in the Denver vegan dining community, and once you’ve tried them, you’ll know why!
Sputnik: What’s summer without a corn dog? Get one at Sputnik, along with their amazing fried pickles and mac and cheese. Located near NOOCH, this is the perfect spot to gather your tribe for some drinks, cruelty-free snacks, and Denver nightlife!
Ice Cream: Little Man, Sweet Action, High Point Creamery, Bonnie Brae Ice Cream – there’s too many places with vegan options to choose just one!
The world is getting more vegan-friendly by the day and Denver is no exception! What are some of your favorite spots in the Denver area?
