The sweetest spot in Denver has a multipage menu crammed full of waffles smothered in just about every kind of sweet fruit combo you can imagine and loads of cheesy carbolicious goodness. Butterscotch, Kahlúa and apricot are just a few of the handcrafted syrup flavors you’ll find on offer at Syrup in Denver, Colorado. There is also an array of luxurious homemade butters available including pecan butter and honey cinnamon butter. Syrup was opened by a longtime barman named Tim Doherty who decided he preferred the early bird work hours of a breakfast joint over slinging drinks into the wee hours of the morning.
When you see “award winning” and “corned beef hash” on a menu, it’s tough not to roll with what the loyal brunch crowd often orders, but I was tempted to venture off into uncharted territory as soon as I laid eyes on Syrup’s magnificent breakfast pizza. What a thing of beauty it was before I scarfed it down. As soon as that personal sized naan bread arrived on my plate drizzled with bright pesto sauce, chorizo, roasted red pepper, onion, cheese and crowned with an over easy egg, I was sold.
…and don’t get me started on that side of smashed tater tots you see framing my pizza. Thankfully Syrup lets you swap out the arugula salad that’s served on the side for smashed tater tots. Syrup’s smashed tater tots are just pure rich buttery potatoey ridiculousness and they proved to be the perfect mop for the leftover sauce on my plate.
Truth be told you really can’t go wrong ordering at Syrup. From new classics like the Cherry Creeker (which includes Syrup’s afore mentioned award winning slow cooked corn beef hash topped with two poached eggs and hollandaise sauce) to oldies, but goodies like eggs Benedict, just about every plate you see whiz by will inspire dish envy. Perhaps the only way you could really be led a stray is if you landed somewhere else for brunch.
