Ooooo yikes, -10 to Hufflepuff for that terrible pun, Kenna. No but really, FOOD REVIEWS IN DENVER ARE BACK! I mean, I don’t think anyone really cares, but I personally love exploring new restaurants/cafes/products/recipes. I’ve kind of neglected the last 2, but I will make more of an effort to try new GF products and recipes for you guys! I’ve recently found that cooking actually really calms me down and makes me feel accomplished, which is a feeling I don’t experience often at all. So be on the lookout for those!
So now.. onto the review!
This past Saturday, I was able to meet up with my best friend, soul sister, personal therapist, fellow celiac sister, and SO MUCH MORE.. for brunch! I feel like bunch in Denver is just one of those things that like 85% of the people in the city do. You just HAVE TO. There are so many amazing places here, why would you not??
Now with us being celiac, we both get excited when we find a place that has numerous options for us. We’ve tried our fair share of restaurants, but decided on a new one called Revelry Kitchen. It had nothing but great reviews, so we decided to try!
So one must know, timing for brunch is optimal. If you arrive in the 11-12 hour, prepare yourself from anywhere to an hour to three hour wait. It’s no joke you guys. So I decided to get there at 9:45 and managed to snag a spot right away! It’s a super quaint place, both outside and in, as you can see. Very homey.
We both got super overwhelmed by the menu.. but in the best way possible! There were so many possible choices.. I definitely will be going back because a) it was fantastic and b) there are so many things I wanted to try!
WE decided to split the churro doughnuts (YES GLUTEN FREE) while my friend got the egg sandwich, and I went with my fav brunch staple, Eggs Benedict (aka The Benny). The description is ” House English Muffin (or gf bread if you’re me), pork belly, farm egg (poached), tomato, kale pesto, hollandaise sauce.” Um, excuse me, but HOLY DELICIOUSNESS.
Now I”m not really a doughnut fan, but after our churro ones arrive, I might be. They were drizzled with a dulce de leche sauce and absolutely delicious! It was so hard to believe they were actually gluten free. It was a good idea to split them though, or else I don’t think I’d had had room for my main course.
BUT NOW ONTO THE MAIN EVENT. I’m not quite sure how to explain my love affair with eggs benedict. I don’t even remember the first time I had them. But I am a hardcore lover of eggs in any form, but pair it with meat, bread, veggies, and a creamy sauce, and baby you got yourself a MEAL.
I’m gonna let you all sick that in for a minute. That is straight up food porn right there.
Ok, done? And it did NOT disappoint. The runnyness of the eggs and the sauce combined with pesto was exquisite. I will say that was my first time having pork belly, but by gosh it will not be the last. I can’t say anymore because I feel you would have to experience it to know the full glory.
And of course the absolute winner of the whole event… we didn’t have to pay extra fr gluten free! Unheard of. Normally if you order something with gf bread, crust, or anything like that, you can get uncharged any where from $2-45. It sucks, but what can you do? But not here! My whole total came to $14.95 for the benedict and the iced tea (my friend got the doughnuts), which isn’t bad for brunch.
In terms of atmosphere, the staff was friendly, warm, and more than attentive. Because it was a small restaurant, it was pretty loud, but I can deal with that. I recommend this place to anyone in Denver and will definitely be returning!
