Denver's ten top coffee shops for conversation


3) Roostercat Coffee House
1045 Lincoln Street
Roostercat is the ultimate coffee house if you're looking to hang out. And while you'll see plenty of the laptop-toting crowd, it's hard to imagine being able to concentrate with three patios calling your name. Roostercat boasts a front patio complete with fire pit, a quieter back patio, and a rooftop patio with a dazzling view of of the city. And they're open late - -from 8 a.m. to midnight daily -- so you can soak up the sun (and the moon) and hopefully one of their waffle sandwiches.


2) St. Mark's Coffeehouse
2019 East 17th Avenue
Keeping with true coffee house tradition, St.Marks is not only a place to work quietly, but a place to exchange ideas. And on any given day, you'll find the front patio consistently buzzing with the conversations of friends and colleagues. The relaxed vibe, coffee drinks a-plenty, an abundant pastry case, and the Thin Man (a bar next door) are just a few reasons why you'll want to stick around.


1) Pablo's Coffee
630 Sixth Avenue
1300 Pennsylvania St.
The steady stream of caffeine-seeking patrons that filter into Pablo's on a daily basis -- despite the fact that the coffee shop doesn't have Wifi -- is a testament to this spot's bean-roasting skills and the desire of patrons to engage in conversations. And you'll find an eclectic feel, a cozy atmosphere and attentive baristas at both locations.

2914 Coffee is my little secret coffeehouse because the coffee is amazing and it's nice and quiet!

The Amsterdam Coffe Shop, Colfax and Elm. Former owner Geez Louise creates hideaway garden patio and hilarious conversation.


It would be really helpful if you had the correct, full addresses here.  For instance, St. Mark's is on East 17th. Just saying 17th implies it's downtown--not in Uptown/City Park...big difference to people unfamiliar with the area.


Stella's on Sour Pearl, eh?


The Market didn't make the cut? That's disappointing, it's one of the best places to meet friends and share a huge dessert over a cup of coffee.

The Market isn't really a coffee house.
