Stowaway Kitchen sits among the revitalized warehouses with rustic brick exteriors that line the streets of Denver’s RiNo (River North Art District). A visit brings an opportunity for bustling conversation or a peaceful outdoor retreat while enjoying brunch that you won’t soon forget.

The inside is rustic / modern, including beautiful wood floors and a creative mini cactus garden that sits atop the counter. It is possible to score a private table inside or grab a spot at the community table. For a meal with a little less shared conversation, the outdoor patio holds three tables plus a line of chairs along a bar that is elevated above a quiet side street.

The restaurant describes its menu as “a trove of recipes collected from various nooks and crannies of the world”; and it delivers. The simple batch-brew coffee will please any coffee lover, but you can also choose a single origin coffee or one of many specialty drinks from the menu. Next, try something from the baked-goods case, such as spiced fruit toast. It is a tender, house-made bread lightly spiced and loaded with apricots and prunes. It comes warm and toasted with a flaked sea-salt sprinkled butter.

Seekers of local food should opt for the Colorful Colorado. A smashed potato with crisp browned edges is topped with local ham, pickled vegetables, asparagus, poached eggs, and spicy adobo sauce. For a more worldly offering, try Dukkah Eggs + Trout. Thick slices of sourdough are layered with smoked trout, gently sauteed spinach leaves, tzatziki, and poached eggs that have been generously sprinkled with dukkah, which is a mix of spices, nuts, and seeds.

The best part about this spot for brunch is that even on a Saturday morning you will not be rushed out the door the minute you finish your meal. Enjoy the space, the food, and fill up on coffee: a welcome way to kick off the weekend.

Note that the Stowaway Kitchen is somewhat dog-friendly: You can’t dine with your canine companion at the table, but the restaurant offers a conveniently shaded “Pooch Parking” area with water if you bring your best buddy along.
