Denver's ten top coffee shops for conversation
6) Weathervane Cafe
1725 East 17th Avenue
With its rustic wood seating, framed vintage prints, and nostalgic knick-knacks, Weathervane feels like a combination between a tiny alpine cabin and your grandma's house. Walk upstairs, and you'll find yourself in a cozy living room, complete with plush sofas and an in-house thrift shop. Weathervane offers a small (but delightful) menu, with breakfast burritos and sandwiches, Beetbox pastries and a Sunday-only pop-up from Glazed and Confuzed doughnuts.
5) Bardo Coffee House
238 South Broadway
When we named Bardo as the Best Coffeehouse for Conversation in 2012, we praised its interchangeable ambiance, one that is conducive to both all-night study sessions and boisterous reunions of friends. Bardo has an inviting coffee house vibe, and your choice of tables, booths, or comfortable sofas, perfect for quiet or conversation at all hours -- and those hours are impressive: from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. on weekdays, and until the unheard of hour of 3 a.m. on weekends.
4) Crema Coffee House
2862 Larimer Street
Crema recently cracked down on "campers," -- those who overstay their welcome -- freeing up tables that would normally be occupied for hours for other patrons looking to enjoy a chat along with Crema's superior coffee brewing methods. The cozy space is well-appointed with the work of local artists. Enjoy coffee from several local and legendary coffee legends, as well as an incredible food menu, with items like sweet potato waffles and pork belly banh mi.
